Polenta, Mushroom and Gorgonzola Casserole

Updated: Dec 13, 2022



Ingredients:

• 1 1/2 cups instant polenta

• 2 teaspoons salt

• 1 tablespoon butter, plus more for the dish

• 1/2 cup (4 ounces) cream cheese

• 1 cup (8 ounces) crumbled Gorgonzola

• 4 tablespoons olive oil

• 1 1/2 pounds cremini or button mushrooms, thinly sliced

• 2 small shallots, finely chopped

• 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

• 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves


Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 350° F. Bring 4 1/2 cups water to a boil. Whisking constantly, slowly add the polenta. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of the salt and the butter. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently, for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the cream cheese and 1/2 cup of the Gorgonzola.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, over medium-high heat, add the oil. Add the mushrooms and shallots and cook for 6-8 minutes. Season with the pepper, thyme, and ½ tsp salt.

  3. Butter a 9 x 11 baking dish. Stir in 2/3 of the mushrooms into the polenta and transfer to the prepared dish.

  4. Top with the remaining mushrooms and Gorgonzola. Bake, uncovered, until the Gorgonzola has melted, about 15 minutes.
