Ingredients

Directions

  1. Cook sausage with oil in a hot saute pan until done. This may take about 45 minutes. Remove from pan. Let sausage rest 5 to 10 minutes before slicing into about 2 dozen slices. In same pan, gently cook red bell peppers until tender and drain well.
  2. While the sausage is cooking, begin the polenta. Combine chicken stock and cream in a large heavy saucepan. Heat to a gentle boil over medium heat, being careful not to burn. While whisking constantly, gradually add the cornmeal in a thin stream. Once cornmeal is incorporated, keep heat low and continue to whisk until mixture is slightly thickened and creamy. Stir in butter and cooked red bell peppers. Season with salt and pepper, if needed.
  3. Spoon a small amount of polenta on each saltine cracker and then a slice of sausage. Then add 1/8 teaspoon polenta on top of the sausage slice and garnish with 1 or 2 slices of scallions.
