Polenta cheese wedges

This appetizer is served hot from the griddle and is a great hands-on food. I honestly stumbled on this accidentally and was pleasantly surprised as to its appeal to my guests and friends. Oddly enough, it does not actually incorporate the use of the classic porridge.
    Quickly scald 3/4 cup milk and allow to cool until warm. In a glass mixing bowl, add 1 cup meal, the warm milk, a dash of all-purpose flour, and 1 teaspoon baking soda. Wisk ingredients together.

    Bring a griddle or fry pan to medium heat.

    Slice a soft white cheese, such as a farmer's cheese, or mozzarella into manageable strips.

    Pour half the meal batter into the griddle or pan. Quickly layer the cheese leaving some space at the batter's perimeter. As the batter cooks, add the remaining batter. Turn and cook the other side.

    Serve immediately and cut into eight equal wedges.
