Breakfast Spicy Sausage Polenta is an easy recipe to serve for your family or company. It encompasses foods and flavors that I love to eat and serve. Down South, we are known for our “grits” at the breakfast table. In Italy, polenta is used in a variety of ways for breakfast, soups, appetizers or entrees.
While visiting friends in Laguana Beach, we were served Ham and Polenta Spoonbread and Mimosas one morning. The host was gracious and shared the recipe from www.finecooking.com by Bruce Weinstein and Marc Scarbrough. I enjoyed Fine Cooking’s version. Ham and Polenta Spoonbread inspired the recipe that I adapted. Polenta is a new ingredient for my kitchen.
I think that “grits” may be the country version of the city relative of “polenta”. Whether you choose grits or polenta, as with any food ingredient, it is important that you choose quality and cook properly. Always add flavor whether it’s vegetables or spices to blend with other ingredients.
Many of the ingredients in this dish are typically on hand in a well stocked pantry. Polenta may be adapted easily deleting or swapping items. I prepared this dish for breakfast but it would easily serve as a side dish for company.
