Fiery Polenta Stuffed Mushroom Roulette

Fiery Polenta Stuffed Mushroom Roulette

Some friends and I got together this past weekend to have a spicy feast and it was lots of fun! I was inspired to create the feast when the heartburn medicine Pepcid came to me and wanted to work with me on a sponsored blog post. THAT blog post is coming on Thursday, but this is the appetizer that we had that day. I got the idea for roulette style spicy apps from a super spicy dinner called Hell Night that is hosted a few times a year at a restaurant in Cambridge called East Coast Grill. What they do is give you one item per person at your table (I had it as meatballs) and most are mild, one is medium, and one is insanely hot. I instead made 75% of these stuffed mushrooms pretty hot, and 25% of them CRAZY HOT, and we all just started chowing down.

Cornbread Stuffing Polenta

Cornbread Stuffing Polenta

Regular stuffing I’m not crazy about. I know that’s blasphemy to most people around this time of the year, but I just really don’t care about it that much! Cornbread stuffing though, one that’s loaded with sausage and studded with tart cranberries, is a totally different story. I can’t get enough of the stuff! I decided to borrow these flavors for a pre-Thanksgiving polenta I made the other night to hold me over for the big event! Make this this weekend to hold you over like I did, or make a big pot of it to serve as a twist on a thanksgiving side dish. Either way you and your family will love it! This is a sponsored post from the great people at Jones Dairy Farm, and if you want more great Thanksgiving inspiration you can check out their Facebook page.

Bluth Family Cornballs

Bluth Family Cornballs

If you don’t want to travel all the way to Mexico to get a cornballer on the black market, you can just make this tasty snack in any deep frying situation. I assume that the cornballs in question are similar to a hush puppy, so that was the approach I took making this recipe. They came out great and were a fun app for our little Arrested Development party. Yo soy loco por los cornballs!
