Oxmoor House MARCH 2006

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 3 rounds and 2/3 cup turkey mixture)


  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 pound ground turkey breast
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 (15-ounce) can stewed tomatoes, undrained and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 (16-ounce) tube polenta
  • 1/4 cup shredded fresh Parmesan cheese


Coat a medium skillet with cooking spray. Place over medium-high heat until hot. Add turkey and garlic, and cook over medium heat until turkey is browned, stirring until turkey crumbles. Stir in tomatoes, Italian seasoning, and pepper. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Set aside.

Preheat broiler.

Slice polenta into 12 rounds. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Broil 10 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. To serve, top polenta with turkey mixture; sprinkle with cheese.

Tip: Polenta is a cornmeal product similar to yellow grits. Precooked polenta comes in a package that looks like a tube of sausage and is usually found in the produce section of the grocery store.
