This recipe was inspired to find another use for polenta. I adapted a recipe from San Gennaro, the makers of the polenta in our local stores. Soyrizo is a type of vegetarian churizo - you can find it with the tofu in many grocery stores, or Trader Joes. When you fry it up, it gets a similar crispness to the bacon in the original recipe.
Saute finely diced pepper in oil with a dash of salt. Add churizo and cook for 5 mins until almost crispy. Remove from pan. Put pats of butter in pan and add slices of polenta. Cook several minutes until butter is absorbed. Turn with little more butter. Put chorizo mixture on top and cook until bubbly.
Wisk marscapone with maple syrup. Serve with marscapone dollops and craisins sprinkled on top
