Ingredients
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 small onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups Anson Mills polenta
  • 1/4 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
Directions

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock and bring to a simmer.

Slowly whisk in the polenta. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring frequently, until the polenta is thick, about 2 hours (adjust the consistency with water or stock, if necessary).

Remove from the heat and whisk in the mascarpone, parmesan and the remaining 4 tablespoons butter. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with parsley.
