Grilled Polenta

Total time: 40 minutes  (including cooling time)
  I use quick-cooking, because that's what I can get, and it takes me about 10 minutes plus cooling time and grilling time.  If you can't make it earlier in the day, don't cover it.  Just allow to cool at room temperature (it will only take abut 20 minutes).  Setting the pan in a bit of cold water helps. It just needs to be cool enough to hold its shape well.

Grilled Polenta Ingredients:

 Instructions:

Note:  Polenta can vary between brands and types.
When making polenta for cooling and cooking again, either frying or on the grill, it's important to get it very stiff. It should be hard to stir, and hold its shape when you are done cooking it - before chilling it.  If it isn't stiff enough, sprinkle another 1 - 2 tsp per 1/4 cup on the polenta and stir in, vigorously.  When cool it should be very firm.  In this recipe the cheese also helps to thicken it as it cools.
