The step for frying these "fries" is totally unnecessary. They can be BAKED on a noninsulated cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper. Brush will olive oil and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Turn over brush wil olive oil again and bake for another 10 minutes. Serve with marinara sauce!! This cuts calories considerably!!!
I gave 5 stars for the idea because we loved them so much!!! but i read the reviews and really changed up a bit because i can't ever just follow directions;) Made plain grits w/ just water for breakfast one day but made extra. After everyone had taken theirs i stirred italian seasoning and lots of parmesan into the leftovers then spread it onto a (clean) styrofoam meat tray to chill. Several days later i just cut into home-fry-sized pieces and baked at 450 on my baking stone. We had an emergency so i forgot and probably left them in 25-30 minutes but they were great! really really crispy on the outside tender inside! yum!
First of all this makes ALOT! They are so good. I halved the recipe and substituted dried Italian seasoning for parsley. I also used olive oil instead of veg. oil. My husband was amazed they tasted so good. Will definitely keep the recipe on hand.
I had a tube of polenta sitting in the cupboard that has been crying out for a new recipe. I sliced it into strip (approx 1/2" wide) then brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with salt pepper parmesan & chopped parsley. I used the oven method but it took way longer than 10 minutes per side. I left them in the oven for approx 60-70 minutes they were just starting to brown but were nice and soft in the middle. They were great on their own but now I'm on the lookout for the perfect dipping sauce.
As this recipe stands...it is bland. I added some italian seasonings and a little more cheese to help with that. Hubby said that they were just ok. I figured out that we just aren't big polenta fans. Thanks anyway for the post.
THIS IS THE BEST!!! I MADE THEM THE SAME SIZE AS FRENCH FRIES AND THEY WERE SO CRISPY AND GOOD. MY FAMILY JUST LOVES THEM. I AM GOING TO TRY AND ADD ONION FOR A DIFFERENT TASTE. THIS IS SUCH A GOOD VERSITAL RECIPE!!! THANK YOU!!
This was the first time I have had polenta. My husband and I found it to be very bland. I grilled the sticks after they set up rather than deep frying. I am sure deep frying would have added flavor but I was concerned about the fat.
I used a roll of seasoned ready made polenta and cut it into fries per a past suggestions and baked them in the oven. It took about 45 - 60 minutes and I upped the heat to 400 degrees to crisp them up. They were good with marinara dip. A little different texture than I expected but would make again.
