Creamy Polenta Recipe
4 cups water
Salt to taste
1 cup medium-grain yellow polenta
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
8 ounces (1 cup) cream cheese
1. Heat water lightly seasoned with salt to a boil over high heat, about 5 minutes. Quickly whisk in the polenta until fully incorporated.
2. Lower the heat to a low simmer, add the butter and allow the polenta to cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
3. Finish by stirring in the cream cheese and salt to taste. If preparing in advance, cool, cover and refrigerate. Reheat in the microwave, about 5 minutes on high, just before serving. Stir vigorously after reheating to fluff.
