Gorgonzola Bacon Polenta Bites

Servings: 24 pieces


24 1/2-inch thick slices of polenta from a prepared roll
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups sweet onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup dried cherries, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced
salt and pepper, to taste
8 slices bacon, cut into 2-inch long strips and cooked
6 ounces Wisconsin creamy gorgonzola cheese, sliced

Cooking Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Arrange polenta slices on a baking sheet, and bake 5 to 7 minutes per side, until hot. In a large skillet, heat butter over low heat. Add onion and cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add walnuts, cherries, brown sugar, rosemary, salt and pepper and cook 8 to 10 minutes more, until onions are caramelized. Top each polenta bite with a bacon slice, 1 tablespoon onion mixture and a slice of gorgonzola. Serve immediately.
