Polenta rounds with prosciutto, goat cheese, and pepper+onion relish

January 3, 2010

Let’s transition ever so gently into this upcoming week that threatens to hold me responsible for getting up at the rude hour of 8:00 7:00, putting on a grown-up outfit, and actually getting some work done.  How about something both righteously wholesome and just a touch decadent on this last day of this most delicious of breaks, to make the transition bearable…

Polenta rounds with prosciutto, goat cheese, and onion+pepper relish

  • 1 polenta log
  • 5-6 strips prosciutto
  • as much goat cheese as you’d like
  • a tablespoon or two of pepper+onion relish, or something else along similar lines of zappiness
  • fresh dill

You can guess the rest: layer it all in the way that pleases your heart and pop it into the oven for 10 minutes or so at 375F.  And look how perfectly your creation will nestle against a salad of mixed greens and garbanzo beans!

    I have a feeling that polenta is similar to what we hicks call mush – by looking up what goes into making it.

    Dust polenta with flour, pan fry and serve with butter and honey. mmmmmmmmmm

    Now though, off to find my can of chick peas! I love those just raw.

    scroll down to the mushrooms – you don’t have to publish this post if you don’t want to.

    Carrie: I absolutely must try the fried polenta with butter and honey; that sounds like something we’d love. And thanks for sharing your blog! Where do you find those amazing mushrooms? I’m jealous!

    The mushrooms are growing out in the backwoods behind the house, they are edible – not that I eat mushrooms, mind you. Ok I have tried them and they are a very sturdy, strong flavor and not horrible fried like that, but honestly, what is bad when fried?

    Thanks for the comment on my blog – it’s a work in progress, mostly for sharing pictures to friends. 🙂
