Yield: Serves 8 (serving size: 2 pieces)

Ingredients

16 ounces Turkey sausage (can substitute with Chorizo or pork sausage)
1/2 finely chopped yellow onion
3/4 cup finely chopped celery
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/4 cup Milk or Non-Dairy (non-dairy creamer, coconut, almond or rice milk)
1 cup instant polenta
1/3 cup parmesan/Romano cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
½ fresh squeezed Lime
¼ cup Cilantro (or Italian parsley)

Preparation

Heat a large non stick saucepan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add sausage; cook 2 minutes or until sausage begins to brown, stirring to crumble. Add onion, celery, cilantro and garlic; sauté 6 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Add water and non-dairy milk to sausage mixture in pan, and bring to a boil. Gradually add polenta, stirring constantly with a whisk. Cook for 3 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly. Add lime juice. Stir. Spoon polenta into a 9x 13–inch glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cool to room temperature; cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours.

Cut the chilled polenta into 8 squares, and cut each polenta square diagonally into triangles. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil; swirl to coat. Place 8 triangles in pan; cook for 2 minutes on each side or until browned or has a crisp edge. Repeat procedure with remaining olive oil and polenta bites. Serve with eggs for breakfast or brunch. Cut into smaller pieces and place on platter for party appetizer.
