Balmos – or cheese polenta is a rich, smooth cheesy dish, absolutely delicious. Yogurt makes it a little tart tasting, a perfect side dish along a fresh salad, meat, sauteed mushrooms or various meat sauce.
This is one of my daughter’s favorite dishes for dinner. If you like cornmeal recipes you should definitely give this cheese polenta a try.
