Sometimes I struggle with what is blog-worthy food and what isn’t. As anyone with food sensitivities knows, we cook a lot. Most of my dinners aren’t really recipes, as most weeknights, I make recipes up based on “what’s in the house” and “what can I make before I starve?”
This is really one of those dinners, but I was able to plate it up nicely. It took less than 20 minutes to make, used only one pan, a cutting board, and a few utensils, and is made up of food that I generally have in the house.
I always forget about polenta — a naturally gluten-free food (obviously not safe for the corn sensitive!), that some of us can buy prepared in shelf-stable tubes. Polenta is an excellent way to fill a biscuit-type craving. It isn’t a biscuit, no. But it’s great texture for a bread craving. I cooked a pan of bacon, first, crisped and warmed the polenta in a bit of the fat, and then quickly wilted some garlic and spinach over the top. This is the type of quick and satisfying meal I want after a busy work day. I hope you enjoy it, too.
