Homemade Potato Chips ~ Simple and Easy
Have you ever been to a bistro or restaurant and had their Homemade Potato Chips and wondered how to make them at home? It’s actually quite simple, and the results are well worth your time! With a few common ingredients, you can whip up a batch of these in a few minutes, and serve them not only with sandwiches, but fried fish, sloppy joes, and anything else you can think of! Homemade Potato Chips are great as a snack on their own too, or as a replacement for tortilla chips in nachos.
Tips for Great Homemade Potato Chips
A few tips will help you make the best Homemade Potato Chips you’ve ever had. If you have a mandolin, slice your potatoes on it. You will get thin, even slices. But, if you don’t have a mandolin, use a sharp knife and slice your potatoes thinly. The thinner you slice, the faster and crispier the Homemade Potato Chips will get. When you pull your chips out, salt them right away. The salt will melt on the oil that remains on the chips, giving it a nice layer of flavor. Lastly, stir your chips! Once the chips have started to crisp, stir them to brown them evenly. They will be beautiful as well as tasty.
- 3 lbs red potatoes, sliced thin
- oil for frying (I use peanut)
- seasonings (optional)
- Heat the oil in a heavy stockpot over medium-high heat.
- Carefully place a third of the sliced potatoes in the hot oil, one at a time to prevent sticking.
- Cook until the potatoes are crispy and lightly browned. Using a slotted spoon, remove to a paper towel lined plate. Salt lightly.
- Continue until all the potatoes are cooked.
- Serve with optional seasonings.
Seasoning your Homemade Potato Chips
There are a lot of great ways to season your Homemade Potato Chips. A simple sprinkling of Parmesan cheese is a great way to top these little crisps. Shaking a bit of malt vinegar over them is reminiscent of boardwalk fries by the ocean. A simple onion or ranch dip is also a perfect accent to the potato flavor.
