Creamy Polenta

April 2, 2010

Every good southerner loves grits and I’m no exception to the rule. I could eat grits morning or night, sweet or salty. Any way you prepare them, grits are delicious! Polenta is basically the italian version of old fashioned southern grits. Polenta is simply yellow or white corn meal that is ground and then boiled to cook.
The other night, my boyfriend and I wanted a side dish to pair with fish and a veggie. We weren’t in the mood for potatoes and rice is pretty tired. So we opted for polenta. It was perfect! We picked up a package of ground polenta at the grocery and boiled it on the stove with a little salt and butter. It was so easy, took no time at all and was absolutely delicious. The next morning, we ate the left overs with a couple of fried eggs for breakfast.

I looove polenta, as well. Especially prepared yourself rather than the pre-made tubed kind! Never had grits, though :)

I love polenta! One time that I had it, it was a firm polenta that was sauteed in butter and studded with hazelnuts. I have never had grits though.
