Polenta and Eggs – Mexican Style

image_pdfimage_print

When I make polenta, I usually make a large batch and freeze some. It works great for a meal on the fly! In this time of pantry cooking, using leftovers and trying to avoid the market, I pulled things out of the freezer. I found polenta and Mexican chorizo. Hmmm…

Then I went to the refrigerator. Cotija cheese, eggs, green onions. So my thinking cap went on.


Here’s How to Do it:

Start by cooking the chorizo. I like to cook it until there is very little liquid left.

Slice the polenta and

cook both sides until it’s heated through.

Set the polenta aside and move the chorizo to open a spot for the eggs. Break the eggs into the same pan and cook to your liking. We do over medium.

Now build the plate. Lay a slice of polenta down, top it with chorizo, then top that with some cheese.

Add the egg and enjoy a delicious dish! Green onions are good too!
