Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square baking pan with 1 teaspoon butter. Add 2 teaspoons Parmesan cheese to the baking pan and shake gently, back and forth, until the bottom and sides are coated with Parmesan, discarding any extra.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Add flour and stir until well combined. Turn off heat and whisk in milk. Turn heat to medium-low and bring sauce to a simmer; cook until thickened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  • While sauce is thickening, mix together Cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, and bread crumbs in a bowl.

  • Layer 1/2 of the polenta slices in the prepared baking dish and top with 1/2 of the sauce. Repeat with remaining polenta and sauce. Top with cheese mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and golden brown, about 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Premade polenta has salt added. Be cautious when salting the sauce.
