My Dad’s version of cooking has always been “clean out the refrigerator” method of cooking. Somehow, these experiments of emptying out all the tidbits that are left in the pantry and fridge usually turned into wonderful meals. This recipe was actually one of those experiments. I remember growing up that this was one of my favorite breakfasts. It came about one weekend morning from my Dad, wanting to make breakfast, but not wanting to go to the store. So instead he emptied the fridge of all the leftovers. The result? This amazing breakfast polenta. I actually forgot about this dish for quite a long time, and recently I rediscovered it and it has become one of my favorite weekend breakfasts to make. It is such a nice break from the usual bacon and eggs. You can also experiment with different ingredients, you really can’t go wrong! Plus, you save yourself the cholesterol and fat from eating too many eggs!
