Polenta can also be fried in olive oil and butter or baked (topped with cheese(s) and Italian tomato sauce).

While I usually enjoy polenta sliced and fried, Frank once served the polenta soft and in a bowl topped with a savory veal stew. I've seen recipes where it is a cobbler base, but have never tried it.

A little bit Ginger. A little bit Mary Ann.

For the store-bought rolls, just slice to the thickness you want & saute until heated through in either all butter, all extra-virgin olive oil, or a combination of both.

Since it'll be an accompaniment to breaded fried chops, I'd probably vote for a butter-saute & a light sprinkling of your favorite herb(s). Maybe some grated Parmesan depending on the rest of the meal. You don't want anything too heavy.

I also use it to make "inside out" tamales. Yes, I KNOW it's not masa... but anyways, chili, red or green, is good over the top, too.
Soft polenta with lots of parmesan is great, with a gravy (brown or red) over thop is wonderful.
