"This is a great twist on the traditional french fry. If you don't want to go to the trouble of making your own by scratch, you can always buy prepared polenta at just about any grocery store, slice them into fries, and fry."

Spread polenta evenly over a cookie sheet, and refrigerate until cold.
  2. Transfer polenta to cutting board and cut into cut 3/4 by 3/4 by 3 1/2 inch sticks.
  3. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Fry polenta sticks in batches until crispy. Place on dry paper towels to drain.
