Polenta cup with an Italian tomato filling: Fingerfood is trendy and delicious. And literally eating with your fingers. And polenta can be formed into cups which are great to hold the Italian filling and you can still eat very easy.
I wanted to prepare some finger food. After thinking it over I decided to go for a polenta cup as finger food. I've filled it with veggies, cheese, meat and a creamy crème fraîche topping.
You can eat it as finger food, but it's also really delicious as an entrée. And the herbs and veggies are good available to.
