I used a Danish blue cheese and fresh thyme as that is what was available. Very creamy. I would add a little chicken flavoured boullion powder to the water next time as I found it needed a touch of salt. The blue cheese amount was about right.

What a creative recipe! Tummy warming and very deliscious. I did use 1 cup of full fat milk instead of milk and cream. Still wonderfully creamy. I am thinking of adding some chopped walnuts, they go so well with blue cheese.

This was very good! I took it to my weekly dinner group and it got fairly good reviews. The only negative was that it tasted too much like blue cheese ( and I used a very mild cheese). Myself, I really enjoyed it. I added fresh rosemary and parsley (that is what I had on hand). I was really pleased to try this. I have been very intimidated by polenta, thinking it would be difficult to make but it was really quite easy. I wonder about putting it in a loaf pan and then slicing it and grilling it?? Thanks Rita for a wonderful recipe!!
