Yield: 4 servings
|8 tablespoons||Butter; divided|
|1 cup||Polenta; quick cooking|
|(or 1 cup finely-ground cornmeal)|
|1 cup||Freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano; divided|
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Butter one cookie sheet with ¾-inch sides.
In a 3- to 4-quart saucepan, heat to scald milk, salt and 6 tablespoons butter. Pour in polenta in a thin stream, whisking vigorously, and cook for about a minute, switching to a wooden spoon as polenta thickens. Remove from heat and stir in ½ cup grated cheese and 4 egg yolks and mix well.
Pour polenta in buttered cookie sheet and smear to a thickness of ½-inch.
Allow to cool. Using a pastry cutter or water glass, cut 3-inch quarter-moons out of the polenta. Arrange leaning up against one another in a buttered baking dish and sprinkle with remaining grated cheese. Place in oven and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until top is light golden-brown. Remove and serve immediately. This recipe yields 4 servings.
