Broiled Polenta Bruschetta

TomatoDolmasThis dish works great as an appetizer or side dish.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound of sliceable polenta, sliced 1/4 inch thick
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 1/2 cups of diced Florida tomatoes
1/2 cup diced red onion
2 teaspoons olive oil
3/4 cup diced fresh mozzarella
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Cover a baking sheet in aluminum foil; set aside.

In a medium non-stick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of oil on medium-high heat.

Sprinkle both sides of the polenta with the Italian seasoning. Add the polenta slices and sauté for about 4-5 minutes on each side. Once both sides have been sautéed, place on the prepared baking sheet.

Meanwhile, combine the tomatoes, red onion, olive oil, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil in a bowl; set aside until all of the polenta pieces are finished and on the baking sheet.

Spoon approximately 1 tablespoon on top of the polenta.

Broil for 5-6 minutes, until the mozzarella has melted and is slightly bubbly.

Serve warm.
