We love Italian food, but we don’t tend to do a lot of pasta dishes. My daughter is gluten intolerant so we avoid traditional pasta and she’s not that fond of the way gluten-free pasta tastes. Polenta is the perfect way to enjoy Italian food without having to deal with gluten.
Italian Polenta Bites
Polenta is a paste or dough that is made from cornmeal. It’s typically boiled and then either fried or baked. While I do make homemade polenta on the weekends, when I’m looking for a quick meal during the week, I use the premade rolls of polenta you can find in the grocery store. Using pre-made polenta, I can have this meal ready in about 15 minutes.

I use this gluten free biscuit mix to make Italian Cheddar Biscuits by adding the following ingredients:
- 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 2 tbsp butter, melted
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp Italian herbs
Mix well and drop by teaspoonfuls. Bake for 10-12 minutes in a preheated 450F oven depending on the size of the biscuits.
