Swiss Chard and Turkey Sausage Over Polenta

25 Jan

I know this sounds like a bunch of weird stuff you’d never cook, and that’s fine. I realize this is a bit out of the ordinary. That’s not to say it wasn’t good though. I did have to tweak this recipe a bit because I couldn’t find instant polenta or swiss chard. I used kale and some pre-made polenta. I cooked everything pretty much the same as the recipe described except for the polenta. I cut mine into slices, pan-fried them a bit and put them underneath the kale and turkey sausage on the plate. I believe that instant grits could have substituted for the polenta and I may do that next time. I think I liked this one more than Seth did. It may have been too much new stuff all in one go. But I really liked everything in this. I’ve recently found that turkey sausage tastes great (not “healthy” or weird as you’d expect) and kale is a nice alternative to other leafy greens like spinach. So if you don’t make this exact recipe, at least give them a shot in something else!

    Being from an Italian family, I love Polenta. Love, love, love it! Question though, when you say “pre-made polenta”, do you mean the stuff in the tubes? That look like fat sausages, only yellow? ‘Cause I’ve always been curious if those are any good.

      Yes! That’s exactly what I mean! I wasn’t exactly sure what to call it. I was a bit skeptical of that stuff too, but the texture wasn’t gummy or weird and I thought it tasted good! I noticed there were a few different flavors available, but I just got the plain one.
