"This is a recipe my Alabama mama taught me, who picked it up when she lived in New Orleans. I make it for my family in Oregon and they love it too! This is a traditional Christmas dish for our family, but could be eaten as an entree, a side, or even breakfast anytime of the year!"

  1. Bring polenta, water, and salt to a boil in a saucepan; reduce heat to low and simmer until polenta is thickened, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and cook kielbasa sausage until browned, 5 to 8 minutes; stir in garlic, rosemary, and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring often, until garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute. Mix in shrimp and stir gently until shrimp are pink and no longer translucent inside, about 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer shrimp mixture and any pan juices to a large serving bowl and stir grits into the mixture. Stir Cheddar cheese into the hot mixture until melted.

Cooked the polenta with salted chicken stock which caused it to be too salty (but still good). Added fennel seed and thinly chopped onions and substituted cayenne pepper for the pepper flakes an...

Yummy dish. I made it without shrimp and it was just as tasty. Next time I will make it with half of the rosemary and red pepper.
