Cheddar Polenta

Make this as a side for grilled shrimp, braised beef short ribs (pictured below) or put an egg on it!


1 cup Polenta, dry

1 cup Milk (I used 2%)

2 cups Water

1 tsp Kosher Salt

Fresh Ground Pepper

3 oz Extra Sharp Cheddar, shredded

1 1/2 tbsp Butter


  1. Bring water and milk to boil in a large saucepan.

  2. Slowly pour in polenta, constantly whisking until incorporated. Add salt and pepper. Gently whisk often for 15 minutes or until fully cooked. *Depending on the consistency you prefer, you may need to add in more water.

  3. Turn off heat, add in cheddar, whisk until incorporated

  4. Add in butter

  5. Add additional salt and pepper (to taste) before serving.
