Polenta (Cornmeal Mush), Rocket and Squacquerone Cheese

Polenta, rucola e squacquerone


Polenta JPGRecipe of Faenza’s countryside (Parrocchia di Sant’Andrea). It is a single dish, typical of vigils, when meat was forbidden.

Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients: 500 g of corn meal, water, salt, 500 g of “squacquerone” cheese, 2 handfuls of rocket, bread, eggs, oil. Serves 4.

Preparation: Cook the polenta in salted water, stirring continuously, for about 45 minutes. When it is ready, lay it on a marble work-top previously greased and allow to cool. Cut it in big squares (around 15x5 cm) and bread-coat, first rolling them in the egg and then in breadcrumbs. Fry the polenta squares in hot oil (in the old days suet was used), then spread the “squacquerone” cheese when they are still piping hot and garnish with chopped rocket.
