a few weeks ago, I thought I would be thrifty and clever and make Fried Polenta a’la Giada De Laurentis
I had day old polenta (that Sweet Man had prepared the night before) already cold and in the fridge.
I had all the other ingrediants needed and my trusty iron skillet.
so I cut up my polenta and I heated my oil and grated my cheese.
but I forged ahead, convinced that all would turn out right.
Oh silly me!
The polenta “sticks” kept sticking to the frying pan, completely coming apart when I tried to turn them.
In the end I had perfectly edible slightly crusty mounds of still mushy polenta.
Even after a visit to the oven.
(I was so distraught I didn’t even get a picture.)
So peeps what did I do wrong?
Was my polenta too wet?
My oil not hot enough?
Have you ever tried to fry polenta before? Did it work?
Help me people!
