Preheat oven to 425° F. Remove greens from beets and set aside. Place beets in a baking dish with a 1/2-inch of water. Cover with foil and roast until easily pierced with a knife, 40 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the size of the beets. Cool slightly and remove skin. Dice the beets and set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until soft, about 7 minutes. Pour in stock or water and bring to a boil. Whisk in polenta in a fine stream. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon, until polenta is very soft, about 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and stir in 1/4 cup goat cheese. Divide warm polenta between 4 bowls.

Heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Cook garlic until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add beet greens and cook until wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Fold in diced beets, season with salt and pepper and splash with a bit of balsamic vinegar. Spoon on top of polenta.

Heat remaining oil in the sauté pan. Fry eggs and place on top of beet greens. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and remaining goat cheese. Serve immediately.
