Tips for making Baked Polenta Fries:

  • Alternatively, you can slice the pre-prepared polenta into any shape of your choosing before baking. Sometimes I slice it into cubes to make Polenta Croutons!

  • Coconut and avocado oil work well as an alternative to olive oil, if preferred.

  • The combo of black pepper & garlic make such a divine combo, but you can certainly toss the polenta with any spices of your choosing before baking!

  • These fries are quite neutral in flavor, versatile and accommodate a variety entrees and condiments. I highly recommend experimentation!

  • These store well in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. Reheat in a 400 degree oven until warmed throughout.
