DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the water, milk, garlic, bay leaves, salt and pepper in a heavy saucepan and bring it to a boil.
  • Gradually whisk in the polenta.
  • Allow the polenta to come up to a boil, whisking intermittently.
  • Lower the heat to low and allow the polenta to cook, uncovered, for 30 - 45 minutes.
  • If the mixture starts to get too thick, add up to 1/2 cup of milk.
  • When the polenta is nice thick, smooth and creamy, add the butter and cheese and stir until melted.
  • Remove the polenta from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
