Rustic Polenta Crostini

I like to entertain a lot,so like I always do before Christmas I organize a get together with my friends and this time I wanted to try a new appetizer with polenta,speck ,fontina and gorgonzola (or bluecheese)

I m from the North of Italy so I grew up with polenta, not the one that you buy at the store precooked  but the one that you make from scratch stirring the water and the corn flour for an hour.

This recipe you don’t have to stir for an hour,you are allow to use the precooked polenta just promise to not tell my dad…he is not gonna be happy because he is the master of the polenta homemade..ok so let start with this gluten free recipe perfect if you have somebody allergic to gluten

 

Ingredients for 12 people:

a package of precooked polenta or some leftover polenta 300 grams

 

For the 6 crostini with speck and fontina:

80 grams fontina cuted it in thin slices

80 grams Speck or Prosciutto in thin slices

 

For the 6 crostini with sausage:

250 grams Italian sausage

150 gorgonzola or bluecheese

150 ml red wine

a sprinkle of love

 

Method:

The first you have to do is to cook the sausage in a frying pan you will crumble it and let it cook for few minutes and then add the wine and let evaporate it.

In the meantime cut your polenta in 12 pieces less then a inch wide.Get your grilling pan or BBQ warm and grill the polenta each side until they have a nice gold color with brown stripe.

Until the crostini are warm put them on a nice servim plate and cover 6 of them with the fontina(it will melt right away)and a slice of speck or prosciutto,and the last 6 with some gorgonzola cheese(or bluecheese) and a spoon of the  sausage .

I hope you enjoy it Buon Appetito

    Sounds very good…I love anything with bacon and cheese! I do use the store made roll of polenta since it is easy, but i’ve made the other as well. Will use this recipe for my next social gathering of friends!
