Polenta stuffed mushrooms

Yield: 24 servings

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Milk; plus
3 tablespoons Milk
¼ teaspoon Kosher salt
1½ teaspoon Fresh thyme
¼ cup Quick-cooking polenta
1 ounce Pecorino-Romano cheese; grated on small
Holes of a box grater to yield 1/2 cup
1 tablespoon Unsalted butter
1 Recipe Golden Mushroom Caps; (see recipe)

Heat the oven to broil with the rack in the upper position. Meanwhile, place ½ cup of the milk, ½ cup of water, the salt, and ½ teaspoon of the thyme in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Slowly pour in the polenta, whisking constantly. Cook, stirring, about 2 minutes, until the polenta thickens. Stir in all but 2 tablespoons of the cheese, the remaining milk, and the butter. Using a small spoon, quickly spoon the polenta into the mushroom caps.

Garnish each cap with the remaining cheese. Place the caps on a baking sheet. Broil until the cheese is golden, about 1 minute. Garnish with the remaining thyme. Serve hot.

Makes 2 dozen.

Comments: Pecorino-Romano is an aged Italian sheep's-milk cheese with a sharp, intense flavor. It is worth searching out this cheese, but if you can't locate it, you can use Parmesan cheese.
