Baked polenta with cheese recipes. Crusted

baked polenta with cheese recipes

Ingredients:

  • 9 oz corn flour
  • 42 oz water
  • 9 oz butter (82% fat)
  • 3 oz cream (20% fat)
  • 1 oz mozzarella or cheddar (tilsit, emmentaler, gouda)
  • salt, pepper
  • 1 oz parmesan (optional)

Preparation:

Boil 42 oz water in a pot with a pinch of salt. When the water boils, gradually add cornflour and continuously mix to avoid clotting. Polenta will begin to splash, so, reduce heat and ceaselessly mix with a wooden spoon (the whisk will bend).

When it boiled and gained the desired consistency, thick but not too flowy, remove it from the stove and let it cool for a while, mixing it from time to time. Then add the butter, cream, pepper (if you like) and grated parmesan (optional). Mix them well.

Butter-smear an oven tray. Put half of the polenta in it, layer it well, with your hand or a spoon, then grate half of the mozzarella over it. Add another layer of polenta and coat with the remaining mozzarella.

Put to bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees (medium-high for gas cooker). You’ll just have to check when the toasty cheese crust forms.
