Polenta Sandwiches

Polenta in Carrozza

MAKES 6

Polenta is very versatile. When it is cold, it can be sliced and layered into a type of lasagna or used like bread. My favorite way to have it is as a sandwich, stuffed with cheese and ham and then fried in butter. With a salad and a glass of wine, this makes a very satisfying meal.

Ingredients

1 recipe Polenta, chilled

1/4 pound prosciutto, thinly sliced

1/2 pound Fontina cheese, thinly sliced

3 large eggs

1 1/2 cups fresh bread crumbs

5 tablespoons butter

Directions

Cut the polenta into 12 slices. Top 6 of the slices with the prosciutto and then the cheese. Top each sandwich with another polenta slice.

In a shallow bowl, beat the eggs. Spread the bread crumbs on a plate. Dip both sides of each sandwich in the eggs and then dredge in the bread crumbs to coat both sides. Set the sandwiches aside on a baking sheet to dry slightly.

In a frying pan, heat the butter. Add the sandwiches and fry on both sides until golden brown and the cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
