Hello! Is it possible to make polenta (a couple hours) ahead of time and reheat? I want to leave a dish for my sitter to feed to my kid tonight. If it is possible, what's the best way?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)

Yes, it might just need a little extra liquid (milk, water, or stock) and some whisking when the sitter reheats it.
Thank you so much!

You'll get better results if you make a firm polenta - then you won't have to figure out how to reheat it with extra liquid. Use a ratio of 4:1 liquid: polenta and spread on a parchment-lined baking sheet to set. Once set, cut into portions and then grill/oven bake for serving.
