Fried polenta slices
February 13th, 2020 | side dishes
Why always dumplings, spaetzle or potatoes? Polenta slices are an ideal accompaniment to all stews and all dishes with a good sauce. In the past, polenta was considered “poor people” food. Today it finds its way into our kitchen. OK then!
The corn meal with the name “Polenta” is incredibly versatile and was already popular with the ancient Romans – can only be good 😉 It can be processed into dumplings, porridge, slices or fillings. Today I’m going to show you how to make fried polenta slices.
I use instant polenta. It is pre-cooked and therefore only needs about 5 minutes to cook. That is practical. Check the package insert to see how long the cooking time is for the respective product. It is also good to know that the polenta slices can be easily frozen. Defrost, fry in butter until golden brown, enjoy.

I must admit it’s a very tasty vegetable. It’s only a matter of how to prepare it. Try this.read more
