- 1/2 lb bacon, 1/2" dice shopping list
- 8 cups low sodium chicken broth shopping list
- 3 cups cornmeal (polenta) shopping list

How to make it
- Fry the bacon in a small stockpot until crisp and brown; scoop bacon out onto a plate and reserve. Pour the chicken broth into the pot and bring to just below the boiling point; set the pot off the burner. Very gradually add polenta to the broth, stirring constantly.
- Combine bacon, corn and chives with the polenta; place back on the burner and cook over low heat
- Adjust seasonings; when the mixture is smooth and does not taste raw, usually after cooking for 20 to 30 minutes, it is ready and can be spooned onto a plate for serving.
- The mixture can also be dropped by small scoopsful into very hot fat and fried like hushpuppies.
- It can also be poured into a flat baking pan to cool and firm. This mixture can be baked in the oven for 20 minutes, or sliced and fried.

an interesting variation on polenta! i would have to veggify this (nix bacon - maybe portabella pieces instead? & veggie broth) but looks yummy! Thanks for sharing :)aluminum_chef in Montreal loved it
