Fontina Cheese Polenta

  • Preparation 10 MIN
    Cooking 10 MIN
  • Servings 6
Italians serve polenta as a side, even with weekday meals. For all that Italian flair, minus the fuss, we opt for quick-cooking polenta over traditional cornmeal.



  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, lightly brown the garlic in the butter. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Sprinkle in the polenta, stirring constantly. Let simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Off the heat, stir in the cheese until completely melted. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Add more broth, if needed.
  3. Serve immediately. Delicious with Red Wine-Braised Sausages.
