POLENTA WITH SUN-DRIED TOMATOES
Contributed by: Vicki Blankenship
6 cups water
1 tsp. salt
2 cups polenta (yellow corn grits)
3 TBS Butter
1 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes in oil.
*fried crusted goat cheese
Bring water and salt to a boil and gradually stir in polenta. Reduce heat and simmer stirring frequently until mixture is thick (about 20 minutes). Stir in butter and sun-dried tomatoes and simmer for another 10 minutes. Pour into deep loaf pans that have been oiled and refrigerate over night or at least for 4 hours so the polenta sets in the mold firmly.
Turn upside down and remove polenta onto a cutting board. Slice about 1â�„2 inch thick. Pan fry using a non-stick skillet in butter or olive oil on medium-low heat. Cook on both sides until desired heat is reached. Longer cook time will yield crisper texture.
