BLT Polenta

BLT Polenta Ingredients (Serves 2)

For the Polenta:
8 Tablespoons Instant Polenta
2 Cups Water
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter
½ Cup Blue Cheese Crumbles
Note: If you are not a blue cheese fan, feel free to substitute your favorite cheese instead.
For the Topping:
4 Pieces Crisp Bacon, sliced into thin strips
1 Tomato, diced
1 Cup Romaine Lettuce, shredded
Squeeze of Lemon Juice (about a ½ teaspoon per serving)
Pinch of Pepper for each serving

In a large skillet, bring the water and salt to a boil over medium heat. When the water is at a rolling boil, add the instant polenta. Reduce the heat to low and continuously stir the polenta for two minutes. Add the butter and stir for another minute. Then add the blue cheese crumbles and cook while stirring for another minute. Then turn the heat off.

Place about three heaping tablespoons full of polenta on to a plate. Top the polenta with a ½ cup of shredded lettuce, half of the diced tomatoes, and half of the sliced crisp bacon. Squeeze a little bit of fresh lemon juice over that stack of BLT toppings and then add a pinch of pepper. Serve while still hot, otherwise the polenta starts to stiffen and get gummy.
