      First time polenta maker here and I just wanted to say thanks to Dancer for posting a recipe with a relatively small yield. My experiment in polenta making proved successful so maybe next time I'll double it. One note. I did not need to boil the polenta for 20 minutes. It was thickened and ready to spread into the pan after 8 minutes. Also, just for fun I cut my polenta into cookie cutter shapes rather than diamonds. Polenta is exceptionally amenable to cookie cutters and I had the cutest polenta "pumpkins". Another experiment. I topped a few of the pumpkins with blue cheese before broiling. YUM! These were extremely flavorful and relatively healthy.

      Very good.I made this without the red pepper and feta. I subbed chopped green onion and parmesan. I alao fried my polenta in butter instead of broiling it.

      These were very good. I used blue cornmeal for a red, white, & blue 4th of July appetizer and it turned out very well. Thanks for the recipe, it was very easy to make! -I cooked mine for about 10 minutes
