1 1/4 cups of stone ground yellow corn meal
3 cups of water
2 cups of 2% milk
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tsp olive oil

Slowly stir into the boiling water and milk. Stir regularly breaking up any lumps, until it begins to thicken, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring regularly, until very thick. Stir in the cheese and parsley.
Coat a cookie sheet with the olive oil and pour the warm polenta onto it (may not cover whole pan) about 1/4 inch thick. Smooth polenta out.
Cover the pan and refrigerate several hours or over night, till cool and firm.
To serve, cut polenta carefully into 12 equal pieces.
You can either grill or broil till lightly browned.
