Breakfast Polenta with Eggs, Habanero- Chicken Sausage & Jalapeno

Soft, creamy polenta made with gorgonzola cheese crumbles, freshly grated parmesan, and a splash of hot sauce paired with fried eggs and chicken habanero sausage equals a spicy, hearty breakfast. We use Aidells habanero, smoked chicken, and pepper jack sausage. It’s really yummy and not nearly as hot as the name indicates!
