Eagle Mountain Outfitters takes groups on excursions into the Montana wilderness and then serves them gourmet meals! This is a wonderful dish made even more heavenly when served in the great outdoors! This would make a lovely side for your turkey this Thanksgiving!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sauté the onions, white mushrooms, garlic and the porcini in 4 fl oz of olive oil until lightly colored. Add basil, oregano and stock; bring to a boil.
  2. Slowly stir in polenta. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring often. The polenta should be thick and creamy. Add more stock if needed. Adjust the seasonings and keep warm.
  3. Just before serving, add cream and cheese and stir vigorously.
  4. Sauté the wild mushrooms in the remaining olive oil until tender, about 10 minutes. Spoon the polenta onto warm plate and garnish with the wild mushrooms and a sprig of fresh basil. Enjoy!
