Plating Your Victoria House Resort & Spa Cheesy Polenta Eggs

Plating your dish is pretty simple. Just grab a shallow bowl and place the polenta in the bowl with the grilled sausages on either side. Gently place the eggs on top of the warm polenta. Then you will garnish with lightly grilled sweet peppers.
