How to make it

  • To make the Polenta, (or you can use left over) put two cups of water in your polenta pot, or a good 2 qt. sauce pot, add the salt and EVOO, and bring to a boil. Add the polenta slow but steady stirring constantly till polenta is smoothly mixed into the water. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, till the polenta is a firm but mushy consistency. Put the polenta in a bowl or plastic container and into the refrigerator to cool completely.
  • When the polenta is cooled down, place it in a medium mixing bowl, whisk in the egg and the bread crumbs. ( I use my hands for mixing, your choice ) Heat your griddle over medium heat and add the EVOO and butter. Shape four patties from the polenta mix and when the butter begins to bubble the patties hit the griddle. Cook till golden brown on each side and place on warmed plates.
  • For breakfast or brunch use lots of butter and pure maple syrup and serve along side eggs and bacon or sausage. For lunch and dinner butter and salt like a fresh ear of corn. Polenta is a healthy, tasty, and versatile food for any occasion. My wife usually make a one cup batch of polenta for dinner, and have enough for breakfast of brunch the next day. You can also serve the patties with your favorite cheese melted on top, a marinara sauce, or both. And for breakfast try powdered sugar or honey. The choices are endless. MANGIA!
