Traditionally, the first cooking step required is stirring for 40-45 minutes in a copper kettle over a hot fire. Pre-cooked polenta eliminates this tedious chore, while preserving Polenta's ancient Italian heritage.
Serving suggestions: Cut into 1/2" slices, use 2-3 slices per serving, top with your favorite sauce, then heat in microwave for 60-90 seconds on high.
In conventional ovens, bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Polenta can also be pan fried on medium heat or broiled with a small amount of oil or butter.
Serve as a plain accompaniment or top with sauce and grated cheese.
May also be deep fried. Cut slices in half, fry plain or use egg dip and coat with bread crumbs.
Fry at about 350 degrees for 4-5 minutes. Eat plain or dip in marinara sauce.
Quick recipe ideas: Toss cubes of polenta into your favorite soups.
Great for lasagna, place layers of sliced polenta topped with spaghetti sauce, cheeses, ground beef, top with more mozzarella and bake.
