I love polenta and rarely find recipes using it. I've decided that next weeks recipes will be dedicated to this wonderfully versatile food. In the meantime have this easy, quick and flavorful recipe. You're welcome.
Prepared Polenta. I used a certified Gluten Free Brand. I also used the one with the sun dried tomatoes in it.
6 Basil Leafs
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cut the polenta in 1/4" to 1/2" thick slices. I prefer the thinner cut, they cook faster. We cut 2 slices per person
Wash, pat dry and cut in half the figs
Wash and pat dry the basil leafs
In a non-stick fry pan, add a tiny amount of butter or oil. A tiny amount, just enough to lightly coat the area where you will place the polenta.
Heat the pan on medium
When hot, carefully add the polenta don't crowd the pan. Cook in batches if you need to. Let it cook until it browns and then flip.
When both sides are browned, remove to a warming pan.
Place the figs cut side down in the pan and let sear for 3-4 minutes, remove to warming pan.
Fry up your eggs how you like them.
Plate first with the polenta, then the egg, rip up the basil and place on top. Plate the figs next to the egg.
Thank you for stopping by and remember, enjoy life.
It's the one you have,
