Polenta Crostini with Herb Goat Cheese Sundried Tomato and Basil Garnish 

Ingredients:

1 precooked polenta log 

3 tbsp unsalted melted butter

1 container  herb goat cheese

sundried tomatoes julienned, as  garnish

 basil julienned, as garnish 

Directions:

Preheat a broiler. Cut the polenta log into 1/2 to 1 inch circles, based on thickness preference, then cut into half moons. In batches if necessary, transfer the pieces to a broiler pan and brush the tops with half of the melted butter. Season with  pepper.

Place under the broiler about 3 inches from the heat source and broil until golden and crisp, about 3- 5 minutes. Turn and brush the other sides with the remaining butter and broil until golden, about 2-3 minutes more or less, depending on your broiler. Remove and add to a beautiful platter, allow to cool down, but still warm.  Add herb goat cheese top with a slice of sundried tomato and basil. Serve while warm, but these are delicious at room temperature as well.
