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.

  1. Those ReCap jar tops are brilliant. I never thought of storing food that way, it is a shame to keep throwing them in the recycle bin when I could really use them. Unfortunately we have mice, so glass storage jars are better than other types of storage in our apartment. 
  2. I've never tried polenta, but this looks amazing and makes me wonder why I haven't tried it yet. It looks especially fantastic in your first recipe above.
  3. I have never heard of Polenta before it sounds delicious! I love that cap for the Mason jars, I am always reusing mine.
