I have two full containers of corn meal in my cupboard. I was making pizza and bought some. Then I was making another pizza and bought another one. What's a girl to do with all that corn meal?
Make fried polenta!
This stuff is so freaking good. It's a side that takes a bit of preparation, but it's totally worth it.
I made a similar recipe many many years ago, when I was still in grad school. When I happened on this recipe in the Williams-Sonoma - New York City cookbook, I knew that I had to make them again. Especially since this recipe was classed up with mushrooms and mascarpone cheese.
You should definitely make this for dinner. It's ah-mazing!
