Polenta Fries

Found this recipe on Pinerest, totally decided to make it my own.  If you don’t want potato fries, then this is a recipe you should definitely try.





3 C Water

1C Milk (I always use whole)

2/3 C Parmesan Cheese (shredded)

2T Butter (cut up into small pieces)

Pepper to taste

Garlic Salt

1tsp. Salt

More Parmesan Cheese to coat frieS


  1. Spray and 8X8 pan with Pam and set aside.

  2. Add water, milk, and optional salt(1/2tsp) to pot.  Bring to boil, once it boils, slowly add in polenta (this will avoid clumps).  Bring back to boil, then remove from heat.  Quickly add in cheese and butter, stir until everything is well blended.

  3. Pour polenta into pan, using a spatula to ensure that mixture is level and flat.  Cover in saran wrap and place in refrigerator for at least an hour.  This will give polenta time to set.

4.     Preheat oven to 425, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with olive oil or Pam.

  1. Remove Polenta from refrigerator and turn over onto cutting board.  Cut in half, then cut into 1/4 in thick pieces.  Yes, you can cut them however you choose….but the thinner they are the more crispy they will be out of the oven, so please keep this in mind while doing this step.



  1. Place on baking sheet, and bake 25-30 min, turning over half way through.  While in the oven, mix salt, garlic salt and pepper together.  Once you remove from oven sprinkle fries with remaining cheese and salt/pepper mixture.

  2. Serve with your choice of dip.  I prefer homemade BBQ https://junecleaver21stcenturystyle.wordpress.com/2015/01/30/homemade-bbq-sauce/  mixed with yellow mustard, but ketchup or even red sauce is fine.
