Crispy Polenta Dippers are a fuss-free snack you can make sweet or savory. They’re perfect for your next game night!
Sometimes homemade is overrated.
When you finally have an afternoon to binge watch Gilmore Girls. Or 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.
All you need is a tube of precooked polenta, a little oil and sprinkle of seasonings. If you've never purchased precooked polenta before, it can be found near the pasta at your grocery store.
Now you could always make your own polenta…
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, store bought it is!
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:
- Chipotle Powder + Guacamole
- Italian Seasoning + Pizza Sauce
- Cinnamon + Blueberry Yogurt

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.
