  • Summary

    Store-bought tubes of polenta are the ultimate appetizer shortcut: just slice and toast in the oven, top with sautéed wild mushrooms and a sprinkling of grated Fontina, then bake again until melty and irresistible. A pinch of crushed red pepper flakes and a splash of Sherry vinegar punch up the flavor of the mushrooms.

    Ingredients

    • 4 pounds prepared polenta, sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rounds (about 30 rounds)
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
    • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
    • 2 pounds assorted wild mushrooms (such as oyster, crimini, and/or stemmed shiitake), cut into thick slices
    • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
    • 1/4 cup Sherry vinegar
    • 1 3/4 teaspoons kosher salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    • 1/2 cup chopped parsley leaves
    • 4 ounces Fontina cheese, coarsely grated (about 1 cup)
