Polenta Tots

Polenta Tots

Servings 4


  • 2 cups chicken/veggie broth or water
  • 1 cup quick cooking polenta
  • ½ cup grated parmesa
  • 3 tablespoons butter, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • olive oil for brushing


  • Line an 11×9- inch sheet pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Bring broth/water to a boil in a heavy medium saucepan. Gradually add polenta, cheese, oregano, and salt. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring constantly, until polenta begins to pull away from side of pan, 3-5 minutes. Transfer polenta to prepared sheet pan. Spread evenly with a rubber spatula. Chill, uncovered, until set, about 1 hour.
  • Preheat broiler. Brush a sheet pan with oil.
  • Unmold polenta, then cut into small rounds (for tots) or sticks (for fries). Transfer to oiled pan, brush tops with a little more extra oil and space evenly on baking sheet. Broil about 4 inches from heat until golden, 15 to 20 minutes. Enjoy!
