Savory-Polenta Squares
Serves 10 / Polenta is often served soft and creamy, but it also sets to a firm texture that you can slice and grill, pan-fry, or broil. These tasty squares stand on their own with a smattering of cheese, or they can serve as a backdrop to a variety of toppings, as suggested. View recipe.
