Homemade Frittos aka Polenta frito.
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon oil
Put the cornmeal and salt into a bowl; pour the boiling water over the cornmeal.
Stir really well and add the oil.
Stir to combine. (If the dough is a little too thin, add more cornmeal, a teaspoon at a time, until it is fairly stiff dough.)
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and put the dough on that.
Put a piece of wax paper on top of the dough so to roll it without the dough sticking to the rolling pin.
Roll it out to about 1/8 inch thick.
Remove and dispose of the wax paper.
Cut it into fritto shaped pieces.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Let them cool.
