Creamy Polenta with Bacon and Sage

Total time: 15 minutes
     Use quick cooking polenta.  Check the package directions for quantity proportion - you may have to add more (or less) liquid to get a soft consistency.  It can be adjusted at the end, before serving.  You can add a bit more milk to thin.  It should be like mashed potatoes - but studded with crisp bacon and fragrant sage!
