Directions

  1. Lightly grease a foil-lined baking sheet.

  2. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in garlic, then add Breeze and chicken broth and bring to a simmer.

Remove from heat and stir in cheeses; season with salt and pepper.

  3. Spread about 3/4-inch thick on prepared baking sheet. Let cool slightly, then cover with plastic wrap and chill until firm.

  4. Stir together tomatoes, oil and vinegar in a small bowl. Season with salt to taste and let stand for 5 minutes.

  5. Cut polenta into 1-inch squares and top with tomatoes. Sprinkle with basil.
