    Super easy and yum. Threw in all the cheese, used garlic infused EVOO to bake. Once out of oven sprinkled with dried rosemary and thyme. Big hit at Mother's Day afternoon tea.

  • Love this recipe.  I cooked

    Love this recipe.  I cooked half in the oven and half in the air fryer (200 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes).

    The air fryer batch was much crispier.

    i really enjoyed this, saving it ... i personally love polenta but hubby not really ... this way though was well received and will make again. even with a dipping sauce they work well (toddler did this). i started by halving this batch, and was a good accompaniment for 2 adults

  • This recipe is fantastic!

    This recipe is fantastic! They turned out so crispy and cheesy, and taste just like the ones I had at Jamie Oliver's restaurant (without deep frying them like they are at Jamie's)! Thank you Steph for this wonderful recipe, will definitely be making these again tmrc_emoticons.)
