Ingredients:  
4 pounds prepared polenta, sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rounds (about 30 rounds)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
2 pounds assorted wild mushrooms (such as oyster, crimini, and/or stemmed shiitake), cut into thick slices
2 shallots, thinly sliced
1/4 cup Sherry vinegar

Directions:
Preheat oven to 450F. Brush both sides of polenta slices very lightly with oil and arrange on 2 rimmed baking sheets. Roast polenta until golden brown and warmed through, about 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt butter with remaining two tablespoons oil in large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until tender and browned, about 12 minutes. Add shallots, vinegar, salt, black pepper, and red pepper and cook, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in parsley.

Divide mushroom mixture between baking sheets with polenta. Top with cheese. Continue to roast until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.

Arrange polenta bites on a platter and serve.

Mushroom mixture can be made 1 day ahead. Transfer to an airtight container and chill.
