Polenta with Sausage and Sautéed Swiss Chard

IMG_8546I love polenta. Long ago I bought pre-made polenta in the store. The older Italian lady behind me scolded me for buying pre-made over store bought.  That caused me to want to make great polenta at home, from there, the possibilities of dinner ideas is endless.  Here’s the basic polenta recipe I use.

  • 6 cups water
  • 1 3/4 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons cracked salt salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp of parmesan cheese
  1. Bring 6 cups of water to a boil in a large pot or deep pan. Add salt.
  2. Gradually whisk in the cornmeal. Reduce the heat to low and cook until the mixture thickens and the cornmeal is tender, stirring often, about 15 minutes. T
  3. Turn off the heat. Add the butter and parmesan cheese.

Sausage and Swiss Chard

  • 2-3 Bratwurst Sausages
  • 3 cups of chopped Swiss Chard
  • 1 tsp of Olive Oil
  • Parmesan Cheese to top

While  the polenta is cooking, I prep the toppings. You can really use anything you want, any type of meat, poultry or vegetable.

  1. Heat oil in a large pan and cook the sausages. Removing from heat when almost complete.
  2. Cut the sausage and return to the heated pan for grilling. This will soak up all the flavor and cook them more complete.
  3. Remove sausage, add swiss chard to pan and sauté until completely wilted.
