Mini Jalapeno Polenta Cakes {Tablespoon Tuesdays}



These are absolute insanity. I probably should have shown you these long before Halloween so you could add them to your menu, but as you can see, I’ve not posted a Tablespoon Tuesday post since we landed on the moon.

I have an excuse! They launched a new site and there were bugs and I couldn’t figure out how to use it so I ate chocolate and sang to myself instead.

But these. These are complete madness.

They’re mouthwateringly creamy, seductively spicy, charmingly cheesy, and need to appear in your face like five years ago.


No polenta cake left behind.

DEWWW IIIIIIIT. Mini Jalapeno Polenta Cakes!

(You can always cut down on the spice for your littles! Or make Halloween faces on top, hoohoohohhaHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA.)

    I want these for lunch...EVERY DAY! Also, I totally threw my head up and did the evil laugh/howl with you there at the end. Love.

    YUM!!! Corn anything is always a win for me, but I've definitely had some polenta sitting in my pantry waiting to be used for a while now. I'll skip the ham to make it vegetarian-- means I desserve extra, extra cheese, right?!

    These look yummy! If one didn't have ramekins on hand (I know, I know) can you give me some guidance re pan size and cooking time?

      You could even put them into some oven-safe coffee mugs! Even in a casserole dish (9x13) the cooking time should be the same. Let me know how they turn out!

    I love looking through wine and food blogs. My friend just told me about yours and also "Cooking With Mr. C." on Facebook. I just "Liked" his page and came to see your site. I'm glad when people share blogs with each other. Denise

    Mmm these look awesome!

    Bev! Can these be made ahead of time and baked when needed? I fail miserably at cooking right before, or when, guests are arriving. I'm usually shoving things under couches and in drawers...

    These are a perfect addition for some of the dinners I'm hosting this holiday season. Different but classic...if that makes sense. And seriously impressional. All my guests will marvel! Pinning to make. :)

    This looks amazing. I think we are going to have to find a time to add this to our dinner menu at my house this week. Great pictures too!
