Step 1

Pour the water into a large pot. Heat the water but don't let it come to a boil (it helps against the formation of lumps). Add the salt. Slowly add the cornmeal while stirring or whisking (with an egg beater, not a mixer) all the time.

Step 2

A word of caution - be careful when the polenta starts to bubble, if the bubbles are too large you might get burned – so turn the heat down if that happens. When all the cornmeal is incorporated, continue stirring or whisking shortly to make sure there are no lumps. Turn the heat down, place a lid on top but leave a crack open.

Step 3

Stir every 4-5 minutes or so but there is definitely no need to stir all the time. Read the cooking instructions on the polenta packet just to know for sure how long the cornmeal needs to be cooked. I cook the polenta made with coarse cornmeal for 40 to 50 minutes and the polenta made with medium cornmeal for about 15 minutes.

Step 4

Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius/ 430 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the casings from the sausages. Mix the polenta with the finely chopped or crumbled sausages and the crumbled feta cheese. Add the lightly beaten egg, dill, salt to taste, and pepper.

Step 5

Make about 30 balls about the size of a golf ball. Wet your hands after every 3 or 4 balls. Place the balls into a buttered casserole dish and sprinkle each ball with a little bit of the grated cheese. Place a tiny amount of butter on each ball.

Step 6

Bake for about 20 minutes in the hot oven or until golden. Serve immediately with crème fraiche/ sour cream/ Greek yogurt/ tomato sauce and a green salad.
