Grilled Polenta Rounds

READY IN: 1hr 32mins
Recipe by GinnyP

Take 2 frozen orange juice cans, empty, wash and dry. These will be used to mold the polenta into tube shapes that you can then cut into rounds.

This was so simple to make and tasted so good! Crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside! I served 10 Minute Szechuan Chicken over the rounds for a gourmet looking dish! Thanks so much!
