    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      1st - I LOVE the fat free tubes of 100% Organic Polenta at Fresh 'n Easy. I assume they are sold elsewhere, but these have become my go-to cheap & healthy favorite.
    2. 2
      2nd - Remove Polenta from packaging and place into a bowl. Massage in the pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, olives, onions, peppers, and parsley. Season with some salt and pepper. If you want to make this with other ingredients - GO FOR IT! I would love to try Ham & cheddar, sausage & sage & Greuyere, Green Chilis & Chorizo & Jack -- the list goes on & on - Use your imagination. I've done pizza ingredients to make my kiddo happy!
    3. 3
      Flatten the mixture in a pie pan, casserole dish, or a long lasagna pan. Basically you wan to flatten it out in as big of a rectangle possible that is about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick. Refrigerate for a few hours.
    4. 4
      I like to make this first thing in the morning then cut, coat, & cook after school. Its ok to do whatever works for your schedule, but its easier to cut and coat and shape the polenta when cold.
    5. 5
      3rd - When ready to cut -- cut into sticks -- about 1 inch wide x 4-5 inches long and 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick. The size is 100% your call. I've even done these before with cookie cutters -- in various shapes. Just make sure they aren't too big to crisp up correctly when you cook.
    6. 6
      Coat your sticks (or other shapes) with a mixture of the panko crumbs and parmesean cheese mixed together. Get a nice coating stuck to all sides of the polenta.
    7. 7
      Fry on a grill pan coated with non-stick spray until crisp on both sides. Serve with warm marinara sauce.
