Creamy, cheesy polenta is delicious, but in the summer it can be a bit heavy. Instead, satisfy your polenta craving with these fluffy yet crispy polenta cakes. The polenta is browned in a pan, then topped with the goat cheese, caramelized onions, and a drizzle of honey, which helps cut the sharpness of the cheese. The goat cheese provides the familiarity of the creamy, cheesy version, while transitioning it from a winter coat to shorts and a t-shirt.
