Method

Step 1
In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, cook bacon until golden and crisp. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Set aside.
Step 2
Discard the bacon fat from the saucepan. Add the broth, milk, garlic, salt and pepper; bring to a low simmer. Slowly pour the cornmeal into the broth mixture, while stirring quickly to prevent lumps. Reduce the heat to a bare simmer. Cover and cook the polenta for 15 to 20 min., stirring occasionally.
Step 3
Remove heat. Mix in the butter, 1/2 cup (125 mL) goats cheese crumbles and thyme. Adjust seasonings to taste, if necessary.
Step 4
Garnish with chives, 2 tbsp (30 mL) goats cheese and reserved bacon to serve.
