Cheesy Polenta with Eggs and Greens

polenta recipes

On a night when you have almost no time for meal prep but want to eat something delicious at home, make this.  Quick-cooking polenta is ready in just a few minutes – which is all the time you need to saute some pre-washed and pre-chopped greens and fry an egg.  You’ll have a hot, satisfying dinner on the table in less than 15 minutes.

You can make many variations of this dish, but here’s how I did it tonight:

Boiled water for the polenta (the ratio is about 4:1 water to polenta).  Meanwhile, saute some chopped greens (use any sort) in a skillet with some olive oil and salt.

Whisked the polenta into the boiling water until it thickened, then added a little milk and shredded cheddar cheese.

Poured the polenta into a bowl, topped with the greens, then quickly fried a couple eggs in the same skillet that the greens were in.  Added the eggs to the dish and served.
