Breakfast Polenta Bowls with Sauteed Plums

This post is sponsored by Greek Gods, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.  #Greekgodsholiday

Two quick things about this fantastic winter polenta breakfast bowl:

  1. When my 6-year-old son tried this, he told me never to give him a plum again unless it was cooked just like this.
  2. Whenever I make recipes with Greek Gods Yogurt, I have a tough time not eating the yogurt before I get a good photograph

I have always had more of a savory pallet, so I find many products out there too sweet.  I love that Greek Goddess yogurt is creamy and sweet enough pair with a dessert, but it is still appropriate for breakfast and healthy snacks.   It is so creamy and delicious, and it never lasts long when I buy it!  I am continually adding Greek Gods Yogurt to my Walmart pick- up order.  You can also find it in the yogurt section in the dairy section at Walmart stores.

Coming up with breakfast ideas for the holiday season can be a challenge.  I have a large extended family, and most of them eat gluten-free.   When I am looking to make breakfast for folks, I like to keep it easy, healthy, but I still want everyone to leave the table satisfied.   I make polenta often at my house and have been known to make it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Adding sauteed plums to polenta, and adding Greek Gods Yogurt is the perfect holiday breakfast.  These sauteed plums remind me of traditional Christmas plum cake, but without all the fuss of baking it.

To make these winter polenta breakfast bowls you will need:


Milk or water



Brown Sugar

Vanilla Extract

Lemon Juice

Pomegranate Seeds

Greek Gods Yogurt

I also think that any winter fruit you have on hand would make a great addition to this breakfast!



  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon butter optional
  • 1 dash salt

Sauteed Plums

  • 6-8 plums cut into wedges
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Polenta Bowls

  • 1 Greek Gods Honey Vanilla Yogurt
  • Pomegranate Seeds
  • Winter fruit



  1. On your stovetop in a saucepan bring butter, milk, and water to a boil.

  2. Once your liquid starts to boil, start adding cornmeal slowly into the pan while continuously whisking.

  3. Whisk until the cornmeal turns to Polenta, then remove from heat and pour polenta directly into a bowl.


  1. Cut Plums into wedges and place them into a pan with butter, brown sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla.

  2. cook over medium heat, until the plums are softened, and until a sauce is created.

  3. Remove from heat when the plums reach the texture you prefer
