Sorullos are a fried cornmeal-based dish that is a staple of the Puerto Rican cuisine. Sorullos are served as a side dish or as appetizers (commonly known by the diminutive form sorullitos), and are sometimes stuffed with cheese. They can be served with mayoketchup, coffee or dusted in confectioners' sugar.


Sorullo are made of a mix of boiled milk, sugar, salt, butter, flour, and cornmeal, formed as sticks or logs, then fried. The flavor is usually lightly sweet, but can also be savory. Sorullos are best served hot and the texture is crisp on the outside and dense and soft in the inside.

Sweet sorullos contain bits of corn kernels in the dough, vanilla, and coconut milk. Anis seeds and almond extract are also popular ingredients added.

Sorullos can also be stuffed with gouda cheese (known as queso de papa), cheddars, mozzarella with guava, or other cheeses.
