Goat Cheese and Roasted Tomato Polenta with a Baked Egg

15 Aug

While this would make an excellent hearty breakfast, I cooked it as a delicious dinner for one last evening and ate every single bite of it.  I could not get enough of how beautifully these flavors worked together.  This had very similar flavors to the tomato and goat cheese baked eggs I made for breakfast a bit back, but was much more substantial thanks to the polenta.

Goat Cheese and Roasted Tomato Polenta with a Baked Egg

1/2 cup grape tomatoes

1 tbs. olive oil

3 cups homemade chicken stock

1 cup polenta

1/2 cup 1% milk

2 tbs. goat cheese

Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

1 egg

Preheat oven to 375º.

On a small baking sheet, toss together tomatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper.  Transfer to oven and roast 25-30 minutes until tender.  Set aside.  Raise heat of oven to 400º.

Bring chicken stock to a simmer over medium-high heat.  Reduce heat to medium and whisk in polenta.  Season with kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper.  Cook, whisking frequently, 10-15 minutes or until most of the chicken stock is absorbed.  Whisk in milk and reduce heat to medium-low.  Cook another 10-15 minutes, whisking frequently, until milk is absorbed and polenta is tender.

Pour polenta into a bowl.

Top polenta with crumbled goat cheese and roasted tomatoes.  Carefully crack an egg into the bowl.  Transfer to the oven and bake 15-17 minutes until whites are set but yolk is still slightly runny.
