I made sweet potato latkes and polenta egg puffs for brunch. I'd been thinking about the puffs since yesterday: 1 slice polenta topped with 1 slice tomato, beaten egg, and Cheddar cheese. Baked for about 20 minutes at 350 F. They were great with salsa.

I winged it on the latkes. I took a sweet potato, shredded it, mixed it in a bowl with about 1/4 red onion, 1 beaten egg, 1 teaspoon baking powder, maybe 1/4 cup whole wheat flour, salt, cayenne pepper, and pepper. Then I fried them in a pan until they were crisp and golden brown. (Does count as a latke?)

My polenta never turns out well. Maybe I'll try your egg puffs. They look good.

Hi Mottsbela! Can you share your polenta recipe? Do you make it with milk or water? Do you add cheese or anything to the polenta when you cook it? Details! We need details! And brunch. It just looks so delicious.

I used premade polenta! I would love to try and make my own, though. Have you had success? The egg puffs were really fun to make, and since they are made in individual muffin cups, they are fun to eat, as well. I think the egg made them puff. I must admit I was surprised at how much they puffed, and decide to call them puffs AFTER baking!
