Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size Wise
Enjoy your favorite foods while keeping portion size in mind.
Use Your Microwave
Mix water and cornmeal in 3-qt. microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 8 min.; stir. Microwave an additional 8 min. or until mixture thickens and pulls away from side of bowl, stirring every 2 min. Continue as directed.
Use Your Grill
Polenta squares can be grilled on medium heat for a great summertime taste sensation. Omit the 1 Tbsp. butter and brush both sides of polenta squares with oil before grilling.
