Polenta Baked with Cheese
from <i>The Way to Cook</i> by Julia Child

6 cups just-cooked polenta
4 Tbs. or more butter
1 cup Parmesan cheese, plus more for topping

Pour the hot polenta onto a large board or platter and spread it out with a spatula. Rapidly make cross-hatchings 1 inch apart on the surface; dot with the butter and spread on the cheese.

[Serve it warm if you wish, and use the following treatment for leftovers.]

Let cool about an hour, until firm. Cut into wedges and arrange overlapping in a buttered baking dish or on a buttered pizza pan; sprinkle on a little more cheese. (May be prepared a day in advance; cover and refrigerate.)

Bake in the upper middle level of a preheated 400*F oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until the top has browned lightly.
