Crispy Garlic Polenta Fries



  • 1 cup quick-cooking corn flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • ½ cup Truly Grass Fed Salted Butter
  • ½ pack Truly Grass Fed Natural Aged Cheddar Cheese (grated)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Salt and pepper


  1. In a medium pot, bring 1 cup water and 1 cup chicken stock to a boil. Slowly whisk in the quick-cooking polenta, 2 cloves garlic, butter and fresh grated Truly Grass Fed Natural Aged Cheddar Cheese. Season with salt and pepper and stir until the polenta is thick but creamy.
  2. Let the polenta sit for a few minutes while lining a deep baking pan with parchment paper. Spread polenta in a thick, even layer, then place in the fridge for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  4. Cut the chilled polenta into thick blocks (1/4 in). Line the baking pan again with parchment paper, spray cooking oil, and spread the “fries” in line.
  5. Sprinkle grated cheddar on top of the “fries” and transfer to the oven.
  6. Bake for 25 mins total, flipping the fries on all sides, until crispy brown.
  7. Set aside and let cool for 5 minutes. Serve with your favorite aioli or as a side dish.
