I attempted polenta once. My roommate and I thought it would be fun to figure out, so we bought a pre-made role. We ended up frying it in a sort-of stir fry. Basically, we didn’t know what to do, and we didn’t realize it was easy to make on our own. I like the slightly gooey texture that is mild enough to be really versatile.
I have been looking up some alternative lasagna recipes, and this is my favorite one so far (substituting polenta sheets for pasta). The recipe pictured above is a great finger food since I am always on the hunt for cheap, creative party foods. Um polenta French toast? Hell yes. And finally, polenta as a savory pancake, double yum!
