Author's Notes

Roast a head of garlic ahead of time. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Cut the top off of the garlic to expose the cloves and drizzle the top with olive oil. Sprinkle it with salt as well, then wrap it in foil. Roast it for an hour, then refrigerate it and use it as you need it!

Get a medium saucepan and an 8 x 8 baking dish. Spray the baking dish with the Olive Oil Cooking Spray (as needed).

Spread the mixture into a packed, even layer in the baking pan and refrigerate it uncovered for 30 minutes. This will make it firm and set for baking.

When the 30 minutes is almost up, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with foil. Spray the foil with more cooking spray. Take out the chilled tray of polenta and cut it into 12 squares. Remove them from the pan and transfer them to the baking sheet.
