Breaded polenta lightly fried in lemon olive oil Breaded polenta lightly fried in lemon olive oil
Number of Servings: 5


    .5 oz Hard Romano Cheese finely grated
    ready made plain polenta in tube
    Meyer Lemon Olive Oil
    1/8 cup Progresso Bread Crumbs - Italian Style
    1/8 cup Almond Milk


This recipe makes 5 or 6 servings

Slice tube of polenta into 10-15 slices of your preferred thickness. I tend to slice it into 5 pieces and then slice each of those into 3 rounds each.

Mix cheese and bread crumbs in a small bowl
Pour a small amount of almond milk in a small bowl (enough to cover the bottom of the bowl)

Heat a large skillet on high

Dip the polenta rounds first in the almond milk, and then in the cheesy bread crumbs

cover the bottom of the pan with lemon olive oil (the lemon is important, it adds acid to the recipe so if you don't have lemon olive oil grate lemon rind finely and mix into light extra virgin olive oil and let soak) Place polenta rounds carefully into hot pan (the oil tends to spit)

Cook till browned on each side, and serve

Number of Servings: 5
