Author Notes: Easy to make 15 minute polenta recipe with only 5 ingredients. It's so creamy and delicious on it's own, but works as a beautiful base for more complex dishes. Serve it breakfast style with a fried egg and sautéed baby spinach; pizza style with tomato sauce, garlic broccoli rabe, and spicy sausage; healthy southern style with pan-fried chicken and sautéed collard greens; steakhouse style with grilled asparagus and juicy sirloin topped with caramelized onions. —Breana Shook
cup corn grits/polenta
cup parmesan cheese
teaspoons salted butter
- Add your grits and water to a medium-sized sauce pan. Bring the contents to a boil, then simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring often. Mix in the remaining ingredients, then heat the polenta up until the cheese has melted and everything has warmed up to temperature.
