Baked Polenta Fries

Baked Polenta Fries

2 cups low-fat milk

2 cups water

1½ cups polenta

1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste

½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated

3 tablespoons olive oil


Add milk and water to a saucepan and bring to a boil. While stirring, add polenta to the pan. Turn the heat down to medium. Add 1 teaspoon salt and Parmesan. Cook and stir until polenta thickens.  Remove the pan from the heat. Spread the polenta out onto a baking sheet, about ½″ thick. Place baking sheet in the refrigerator for 1 hour.  Remove polenta from the refrigerator and cut into large fry-shaped pieces. Rub them with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, as desired.

Bake at 450ºF for 10 minutes on each side. Fries should be golden brown and crispy.
