Polenta with Gorgonzola and Onions

Polenta with Gorgonzola and Onions: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 8
Polenta and Gorgonzola cheese have a natural affinity. Try using already prepared polenta to speed up the cooking of this tasty appetizer.


  • 6 cups water
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups instant polenta
  • 1 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cups onions, sliced
  • Olive oil for brushing
  • 4 oz Gorgonzola cheese*


  • Early in the day, prepare polenta. Boil the water in a heavy bottomed pot. Add salt and polenta, pouring in a steady stream and stir continuously with a wooden spoon. Reduce heat to very low, and continue to stir until the polenta is thick and smooth.
  • Pour the hot polenta onto a cookie sheet or shallow pan. Smooth the top and let it cool, then place in the refrigerator covered with plastic, until needed.
  • Prepare the caramelized onions: Heat the olive oil in a 12-inch (30cm) non stick skillet, and add the onions. Cook over medium heat, stirring often until the onions are wilted and a rich golden brown; about 20 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Preheat broiler.
  • Slice the polenta into 32 squares about 2 inches (5cm) across. Lightly brush the polenta squares with olive oil and arrange on another cookie sheet.
  • Place polenta under broiler and cook until slightly crisp and lightly browned. Turn once and continue to cook until the other side is crisp. This should take only a few minutes.
  • Top each square with about 1 tsp (11g) of the caramelized onion, and top it off with a little of the Gorgonzola cheese—about 1/2 tsp (1g) per square.
  • Place on an platter and serve immediately

* Allergy notes: The egg protein lysozyme is an unlabeled additive in some cheeses. People allergic to eggs should eliminate any cheese in this recipe.
