Stephanie Alexander's polenta and feta bites
« on: February 22, 2014, 07:13:51 am »
Would love to make the following recipe for my book club this week, but I don't want to be stirring the polenta (after owning a TMX it seems such a waste of time!). Can someone convert the boiling and stirring for the TMX please?

Ingredients

1 tbsp olive oil (for greasing)
100g feta, crumbled or grated
50g parmesan, grated
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup polenta
2 eggs, separated
3 tbsp chopped parsley
freshly ground pepper
Method

Preheat oven to 220C. Brush each hole of 2 mini-muffin tins with olive oil. Mix the cheeses and set aside about 3 tablespoons for scattering on top of muffins.

Place milk, salt and water in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat. Slowly pour in the polenta, whisking all the time. Whisk constantly until the mixture thickens (you may want to swap the whisk for a wooden spoon as it gets thicker). Cook for 5 minutes, stirring all the while, then scoop the mixture into a large mixing bowl. Add the yolks, cheese and parsley, and stir to combine. Taste and add pepper.

Whisk egg whites to firm peaks and fold into the mixture.

Fill each muffin tin and scatter over the reserved cheese. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool in tins for a few minutes then turn out. Serve at once or refrigerate and reheat in the tins for 5 minutes.

Makes 20-24

I've used the polenta recipe in the EDC and it is fine.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
