Pan-Seared Polenta
Total Time:
20 minutes


1 (17-oz) package basil and garlic polenta
Salt and pepper, to taste
Large zip-top bag
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 large egg (or 1/4 cup egg substitute)
1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan and Romano cheese blend
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup shredded Italian cheese blend


  1. Cut polenta in half. (This allows wrapper to be easily removed). Remove plastic and cut into eight 3/4-inch-thick circles. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Gently place polenta into zip-top bag. Add flour to bag and gently shake to coat evenly.
  3. Break egg into 1-cup measuring cup and whisk with fork. Pour egg into bag and gently shake to coat polenta evenly.
  4. Add breadcrumbs, Parmesan and Romano cheese blend and Italian seasoning to bag. Gently shake to coat.
  5. Preheat large sauté pan on medium high for 2–3 minutes. Place oil in pan and swirl to coat. Using tongs, add polenta to pan, making sure polenta is fully coated while adding to pan. Cook 8 minutes, or until golden brown. Turn once halfway through cooking time.
  6. Sprinkle Italian cheese on top of polenta, cover and remove from heat, to melt cheese. Serve.
