Fried Polenta Sticks with Sage

The heartiness of polenta makes it a comforting menu addition when autumn's chill sets in. The coarse grains develop their characteristic mushiness when they're mixed with simmering liquid, so reserve some stamina for stirring.

One of my most requested dishes
August 30, 2011
I've made this dish for friends and family on different occassions. It is always a hit and people constantly request that I make it. I serve the polenta sticks with a spicy tomato sauce for dipping. I bought a mini deep fryer specifically for this recipe.
Pros: Will Make Again

Great appetizer!
April 30, 2010
This is one of my "go-to" appetizer recipes for dinner parties. You can use small cookie cutters to but the polenta into shapes before you fry them, and they're super cute!
I like to make a parsley pesto and put it on top of the polenta pieces, then topped with a little bit of sour cream. It's absolutely fantastic and I get requested to make for every party!
Very easy to make, and a definate crowd pleaser!
