Recipe by KristenErinM

this is spectacular. i have made it twice for 2 different groups of people and everyone has loved it. each serving(not including any additional toppings) is less than 100 calories. the polenta can be made ahead and refrigerated to save time.

Sorry, I wasn't a fan. Reading everyone's suggestions I added meat to mine. The meat mixture was good but the cornbread it's self was not. I think it would be very good it you made the cornbread by the directions then added the mixture on top. This just didn't do it for me.
