This rating is based on my tweaked recipe result, after taking into consideration dividend's comments. It is a perfectly balanced dish with the mild/sweet corny taste and the seasoned sausage. The cubes of polenta are so fun to eat:) To be sure the cubed polenta didn't fall apart, I broiled them for about 40 minutes, flipping. They formed a crispy skin which was delicious. (I brushed the melted butter on to ensure better coverage) I didn't add all that liquid to the meat...I think its supposed to soak in with the rest of the polenta and form an almost mushy, stuffing-like texture. All I did was throw in a boullion and about 1/2 cup water and about half of the intended mashed polenta. I was glad, it would have been pretty mushy, I think. I love this dish! Next time I will halve it for the two of us.
