Eggs and Polenta

something different on the breakfast plate , polenta.

Very easy to make , simply stir the corn flour/meal into boiling water, cook for about 5 minutes.

Place the mixture in a greased bread pan, let cool and refrigerate, the mixture will gel.

Similar to cornbread, but more gelatinous, slice the polenta, bake slightly and broil and/or fry, with olive oil.

If desired, make a sauce, veggie and re-hydrated mushrooms were available.
