Crockpot Polenta

Deceptively simple. Utterly luxurious. What’s not to love about an unctuous cake of corn, garlic, butter, and Parmesan cheese? Crockpot polenta is Old World peasant food – or porridge – that’s made with a modern-day twist: your slow cooker.

Straight out of the crockpot, polenta is spoonable and creamy. This makes it the perfect base for BBQ Pork Ribs .  Or – cut the polenta into sweet little squares, fry it, and pile high with  Bacon Mushroom Meatballs in Fire-Roasted Tomatoes .

  • Really good and easy to make.

  • Kids loved it. Gobbled it up. But it took SO MUCH TIME so this is the only time we will be making this recipe. Also, we had no success getting the polenta to stay together like in the picture.
