Crispy Polenta Dippers are a fuss-free toaster oven snack you can make sweet or savory. Perfect for your next game night!
Sometimes homemade is overrated.
When you finally have an afternoon to binge watch Gilmore Girls. Are setting up for an epic game of Monopoly. Or just want to get off your feet and onto that cozy couch.
You’re not looking to spend hours of your precious free time in the kitchen.
Nope, you want quick and simple like these semi-homemade Crispy Polenta Dippers.
Tiny wedges full of corn-licious flavor that take just 10 minutes of prep time and like these scrumptious Buffalo Broccoli and Cauliflower Bites, Addictive Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds and Veggie Hummus Flatbread they’re a healthy toaster oven appetizer too.
All you need is a tube of pre-cooked polenta, a little oil and sprinkle of seasonings. If you’ve never purchased pre-cooked polenta before, it can be found near the pasta at your grocery store.
Why Not Make Your Own Polenta?
Well, you absolutely can. BUT…that involves hours of cooking and cooling the polenta. All before you can throw together these must-pop-in-your-mouth-right-now Crispy Polenta Dippers.
So, we’re going store bought today!
To make the dippers, slice the polenta into ½-inch rounds, then cut the rounds into triangles.
Arrange them on your toaster oven baking sheet, spray with cooking oil and sprinkle on your favorite seasonings.
Pop the pan in your toaster oven for 10 minutes, remember to reduce the time and temperature when using a convection toaster oven.
To get these little snack bites crispy on the outside but still creamy inside use your toaster oven’s secret weapon: The Broiler.
In just 3 or 4 minutes, they will be golden, browned on the edges and ready for dipping.
Seasoning and Dip Ideas For Your Crispy Polenta:
- Chipotle Powder + Guacamole
- Italian Seasoning + Pizza Sauce
- Cinnamon + Blueberry Yogurt
Not sure which combo to try first?
The Italian seasoning and pizza sauce was the big winner in our house. Tim quickly finished his and started stealing from my plate!
While this recipe won’t help you snag Park Place or Boardwalk it will get you out of the kitchen quickly and back in the game.
