MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 3, 2012

I liked this recipe - preparing polenta is new for me, and these are a great alternative to regular steak fries, with good flavor and just the right amount of seasoning. I used 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, minced garlic and garlic powder instead of onion powder, and put all the ingredients in a plastic bag to coat the polenta slices. I also baked them longer than the recipe stated to get them crispy on the outside.
