Take Back the Kitchen: Alma's Fried Polenta with Olive oil and Parmesan

pol2.JPG


I forgot all about polenta until I saw it in Trader Joe's yesterday! I was looking for gluten free dinner ideas to make a special dinner for my niece who is going out of town and I saw the prepared tube of polenta on the shelf. These tubes are so user friendly and can be fried up and embellished to become a delicious side dish or appetizer in just a few minutes. Try the following recipe and let me know what you think!

Fried Polenta with Olive oil and Parmesan:

One tube prepared Polenta, sliced into 1/4" round slices (should make about 20 slices)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tsp olive oil, divided

Steps:

Heat up a medium to large size non-stick skillet over medium heat (I like the eco friendly ceramic skillets) and add a tsp of the olive oil until hot.
When the oil is smoking a bit, add as many slices as you can to the pan, leaving a little room around them so that you will easily be able to flip them with a spatula.
Wait a few minutes and check with a spatula to see if the underside is getting golden brown. When it does, flip it over and cook until that side is golden brown.
While you're waiting for the second side to get brown, place a little of the cheese on top.
When the cheese is melted and the second side is golden brown, remove from the pan and loosely cover with aluminum.
Start making the second batch and when they are all done, serve immediately. Enjoy!
