These polenta fries made in the air fryer are simple, crunchy, delicious, and addictive. My first batch was an experiment and they were so good that I ran out and bought another tube. Serve with ketchup or your favorite dipping sauce.

  • Slice polenta into long, thin slices resembling french fries.

  • Spray the bottom of the basket with cooking spray. Place 1/2 of the polenta fries in the basket and lightly mist the tops with cooking spray. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Cook in the preheated air fryer for 10 minutes. Flip the fries with a spatula and cook until crispy, about 5 minutes longer. Transfer fries to a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining half of fries.

Cook's Note:

You can also cut the polenta into wedges to resemble potato wedges. Due to the thickness, you will need to add 10 minutes to cook time.

These were a great snack! Super easy. I had some leftover marinara sauce so ate them with that. One thing I'd recommend is making sure you like the flavor of the prepared polenta you use. I didn't love the brand I used and probably won't use it again. Read More
