I followed the directions and they were a perfect consistency. But when I added cheese & cream they turned to soup. I added more grits. But the more they cooked the soupier they got. They lost all texture.
Thanks to its firm consistency, precooked polenta (usually sold in tube form) can be seared, toasted, or even layered and baked like a lasagna. We keep the slices on the thick side so they have a creamy texture when heated through.
