Put the oil in the pan and turn the heat to medium. When the oil is hot, shake away the excess breadcrumbs from the polenta pieces and place them in the pan. Fry on both sides until light brown.

Transfer the fried polenta to a dish covered with a paper towel to drain the excess oil. Serve hot at once.

Leftover Polenta can be simply fried in a skillet with olive or vegetable oil. When fried with a cover of breadcrumbs Polenta becomes pleasantly crunchy and tasty. It can be served as a delicious side for a dish of meat or baccala’ and also makes a great hot appetizer.
