Polenta Cakes With Roasted Eggplant

While visiting with my in in-laws for the holidays, I’m often asked to try new and sometimes unusual food. This Christmas was no exception. During our trip to snowy Ohio, my husband’s father fried up a big plate of mush and topped it with a generous amount of maple syrup.

I quickly learned that mush isn’t nearly as scary as it sounds. It’s just a creamy cornmeal mixture that can be fried, just like polenta.

After returning to the south, I had to prepare polenta the way I was use to—a foundation for savory toppings.

To make my polenta cakes, I omitted the leeks from this recipe and pan pan-fried until crunchy, rather than grilling, and topped it off with marinara and a side of plain roasted eggplant.
