How to Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place mushrooms on tray. Top with thyme. Mix oil and garlic in a bowl. Drizzle mushrooms with 1 1⁄2 tbs oil mixture. Season and bake for 10 minutes or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, grease 2 baking trays with oil. Sprinkle with extra polenta. Bring milk and water to the boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to low. Add polenta in a thin, steady stream, stirring until combined. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until soft. Stir in butter. Season. Divide among prepared trays. Spread to make a 24cm round on each tray.
  3. Brush remaining oil mixture over polenta bases. Bake for 5 minutes. Combine cheeses. Reserve 1⁄4 cup and divide remaining cheese mixture among polenta bases. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until cheese melts.
  4. Top polenta bases with mushroom. Sprinkle with reserved cheese. Bake for 5 minutes or until golden. Stand for 5 minutes. Use an egg slice to transfer to a board. Sprinkle with kale.
