Ok, this is a fast fun and easy recipe that anyone can make.  I’ve also paired it with a fun and fabulous set of tomato aprons, well tomatoe red aprons that you can enjoy as you are making these amazing and fun sundried tomatoe and gorgonzola polenta side dishes and appetizers.  In the image to the left you’ll see what it looks like sliced.  I prefer them this way when I am serving them as a side dish.  If I am serving them as an appetizer, I make everything the same way, I just take the polenta and roll it into a ball and then push my thumb into the middle so it becomes a mini version of the shell or cup from a fingerprint cookie.  Here are the aprons (which if you buy them without using a coupon code) you’ll help to support this blog and keep me bringing you more recipes and fun things.

Ok, here’s the recipe for my sundried tomato and Gorgonzola polenta.

  • 1 package of polenta (I buy the premade that comes in the plastic wrap so I can just slice it.
  • Sundried tomatoes
  • Gorgonzola cheese (I buy the wedge of it instead of crumbled but both work).
  • shredded Parmesan cheese
  • extra virgin olive oil

All you do is line a pan with wax paper, or you pour extra virgin olive oil on it (however your polenta will start out soggy but that goes away when you let it rest after the oven outside of the pan) and heat your oven to 350.  Now slice your polenta or bunch it up into bites with your thumb pushing it into a cup shape if you are doing bites for an appetizer.  Take your sundried tomatoes and chop them and mix them into the polenta.  If you are doing slices, you can julienne them and lay them across the slices.

Now take your Gorgonzola cheese and break of small chunks and either place them in the thumb prints or on top of the slices.  I usually place them in the middle because it melts across the slice.  Now take these and place them in the oven on the top rack for about 20 minutes.

After twenty minutes, take the polenta out and check the consistency.  If it is able to be easily picked up and almost done, cover them with the Parmesan cheese and then put them back in the oven for a few minutes on the top rack and then turn the oven to broil so you can brown and crisp the cheese for about 5 minutes (until the cheese starts to brown).  Now take everything out of the oven and serve.

My sundried tomatoe and gorgonzola polenta is an awesome appetizer and also a fun side dish you can serve.  Everyone will love them and you’ll love serving them in your new red tomato aprons.  I love having a theme and when I am serving dinner, I always like to have a matching outfit and things like these red tomato aprons are one of the first ways you can start to bring your theme together.
