Polenta Fries


Stella sponsored a tube of prepared polenta to the South Arm Older Adults Cooking Club as she has no idea how to use it.  So, Michelle looked up for a simple Polenta Fries to be made in the kitchen.

Polenta-Fries-08

The Polenta Fries is baked in a hot oven until golden brown and crispy on the outside. The Polenta Fries are served with a Simple Homemade Tomato Sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (18 ounces) plain prepared polenta
