Baked Polenta with Parmesan

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I love polenta. You can serve it to me plain or with beans and vegetables mixed in or baked like the recipe I am sharing today, and I will eat it with gusto. It is earthy, delicious and very adaptable. This baked version is the perfect side dish for just about any meal you are putting on the table for family and friends. It is delicious, I hope you give it a try.

2-3 T cream
1/4 c shredded Parmesan Cheese

Spread butter in the bottom and up the sides of a small skillet. Set aside. Bring stock and salt to a boil, slowly whisk in the polenta, reduce heat, cook until thick. Stir in the cream, and place in the buttered skillet. Sprinkle cheese on top. Set aside.

For the two of us, I made half the recipe, and it did not fit the pan. But I must tell you, the crusty edge is so good. I will remember this and create those crusty edges again! 

About 20 minutes before serving, preheat oven to 350 and bake polenta 15-20 minutes. If desired, broil to brown the top.

    2. When I cut the recipe in half for our smaller family, it was thin for the pan size, but the crusty cheesy edges came about, and they are some of my favorite parts! Thanks for visiting.
