“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!”

Directions

  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.

This is a great recipe, cut down on the red pepper flakes. It was a BIG hit for our Christmas brunch. We have made it several times and enjoy it everytime! A keeper for sure.

Awesome flavor! Tweaked it slightly for the kidlets, 1 tbsp of hot red flakes and I skipped the rosemary. Very filling and flavorful!

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 and dried rosemary for the fresh. I'm assuming it was my polenta but I ended up adding about a cup more of water to the polenta because they were getting too thick before cooking all the way. I also served the saute mix over the top of the polenta. Except for the over-salted polenta (my fault) my wife and I enjoyed it very much. I will definitely make this again but without so much salt!
