Mamaliga Cu Branza (Cornmeal Mush With Cheese)
90 mins (prep 90)
7 ingredients
6-8 servings
Mamaliga is a traditional Romanian Recipe. When one thinks of mush, it is usually unappealing. If you are familiar with and like Polenta, here is the Romanian version. We call it Mamaliga. When I was a child, my mother would serve Mamaliga, on its own, with fish, or other meats, instead of bread. It is equally good the next day, because it can be cut into pieces, and dipped into a tocana (stew) or ciorba de fasole (bean soup). The next day, Mamaliga may be served for breakfast, fried with bacon, or sausages.
