Author Notes

If you buy instant polenta, or polenta in the roll precooked, and you have yourself the perfect side dish handy all the time.
Black pudding, I don't know how many people are crazy about, but you should give a try.
I made this as an appetizer but it could be a dinner, hors-d'oeuvres, or omit the black sausage and you have vegan dish.
