I agree that the butter should be cut in half. I ended up mopping most of it off. I also used medium grained cornmeal, along with basil versus the sage and added more cheese for excellent results. Thanks Karen for a great recipe

I can't help but think that the 1-1/4 cups of butter must be a typo. I used 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks), and it was plenty. I made a trip to Aldi to pick up some Gruyere cheese, just to make this recipe, but they were all out (seasonal item). I pulled up Google on my phone and found that any Swiss cheese is a suitable substitution for Gruyere, so I purchased a block of baby Swiss and used that. I ended up with more polenta than would fit level in the 8" cake pan. It was slightly mounded up in the pan, and I ended up shaving some of the top off once it was set, so that it made for a flat surface when I turned it out onto the cutting board for slicing. Next time I will use a 9" or 10" springform pan. Both my husband and I agreed that the flavors are similar to the shrimp and grits that we make, so we intend to use the left overs with some sauteed shrimp another night this week.

This polenta is very tasty. I used it as a contribution to an appetizer party and everyone raved. I used cornmeal rather than polenta which should be the same thing and the recipe yield was more than twice the 8 servings the recipe states. I'm hoping for other reviews so I can see if I did something wrong. Another thought is that the butter could probably be cut down a lot without harming the result.
