    Creamy Polenta

    This easy polenta takes only a few minutes of stirring before it’s left to cook on its own to creamy perfection. If you have leftovers, chill them overnight in a greased pan, slice into slabs, brush with canola oil and broil until both sides begin to crisp. Serve as a side dish at supper or for breakfast with maple syrup or honey.

    This Recipe Is:
    Ingredients
    Prep: 10 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
    • 1 1/3   cups
      cornmeal
    • 6   cups
      cold water
    • 1   teaspoon
      salt
