5 slices bacon
1/3 cup onion
2 cloves garlic
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
3/4 cup polenta
In 2- to 3-quart pan over medium heat, cook chopped bacon, stirring until lightly browned. Add finely chopped onion and minced garlic.
Cook, stirring, until onion is limp and bacon is well browned.
Discard all but 1 tablespoon of drippings from pan. Add 1 1/2 cups broth; bring to boil over high heat. In small bowl, mix polenta (or yellow corn meal) with remaining cool broth.
Using long-handled spoon, stir polenta into boiling broth (mixture will thicken and may spatter). Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring constantly for five minutes. Season to taste with salt. Spoon into serving dish.
