Homemade Polenta Fries….

Homemade polenta fries are an acquired taste that split our house – I love them, Mr Frugal hates them.

Homemade polenta fries

There’s a moral to this story – never ask your husband to go to the shop for you to get something unless he is 100% clear what it is you need him to get.  I sent mine to the shop to get some polenta to make cornbread and he came back with a packet of ready made polenta which is clearly no good to make cornbread with!

Rather than waste it, we decided to make polenta fries to have with the burgers and salad we were planning for tea tonight and as it turned out they were delicious and we’ll be having them again so he’s been forgiven!

I didn’t do anything fancy with the polenta, I just sliced it into skinny fries and coated them in olive oil.  I seasoned them and then cooked them in my airfryer until they were crispy which took around 15-20 minutes.  You could just bake them in the oven on a high heat until they’re golden and crispy if you prefer.

Polenta fries are a great alternative to potato fries and we’ll definitely be having them again!
