Amo la colazione!

For those of you who don’t speak Italian, that means, “I love breakfast!” (I had to Google it.)

So, I decided to combine one of my favorite cuisines with my all-time favorite meal of the day. I give you… eggs benedict, Italian style!

I fell in love with polenta’s deliciousness and versatility about three years ago. I discovered that you can put just about anything in it, and it makes it taste AMAZING.

In my dish, I had a pan-seared polenta cake topped with a smear of roasted garlic and crispy prosciutto. On top of that, rested the ever-glorious, ever-necessary poached egg. I finished it off with a dollop of pesto.

This dish was a symphony of flavors and textures, that I can assure you, would please anyone! The polenta was nice and creamy on the inside, and the undertone of the garlic played well with the “sauce” created by combining the yolk of the egg with the pesto.

Don’t forget the prosciutto — a salty, crispy treat that adds more texture, and a savory note, to the whole dish.

Overall verdict: FUGGETABOUTIT! This dish was easy and fun to prepare, and more importantly, not expensive. If you want to have a new brunch experience, I highly recommend giving this a try.
