Last time I made polenta Matt practically made me promise that we would never attempt it again, but I’m always up for a challenge.
Okay, and I bought a prepackaged tube of the stuff instead this time.
I wanted to add a bit of flare to our traditional Sausage, Peppers & Onions so we decided to use Polenta Chips as the bed for our feast.
- 1 tube of store bought polenta
- How to: Cut polenta into thin rounds and add to a hot pan. Allow to cook until they’ve become crispy, crunchy, and brown.
Although the chips made a fantastic base to our meal they were amazing on their own. I can totally see myself setting out a bowl of the Polenta Chips with some marinara and homemade salsa as an appetizer.
While the Polenta got crispy we threw some Italian chicken sausages on the grill and Matt got to work on the pepper + onion mixture.
Half an onion, 2 red bell peppers, and a spicy mystery pepper later and we were in business.
Dishes like this remind me of my parent’s cooking. And I just love sausage. Kind of a funny confession from a once vegetarian, but I own it!
