Homemade potato chips! This is not something I do often, but when I do, it's a real treat for me and my family :) They are delicious and so crunchy!!


2 baking potatoes scrubbed and patted dry, sliced paper thin

Vegetable oil for frying

Salt and pepper to taste

A mandolin is a must for this recipe J  you can find them at any kitchen store, and they range from very inexpensive to expensive.  I think I paid $10 for mine!  Using a mandolin will allow you to slice the potatoes paper thin….watch out for your fingers, though!  In a deep pot, pour about 3 cups of oil into it and heat the oil to about 350.  Place potatoes in a single layer (careful not to overcrowd the pot) and fry for 7 to 10 minutes or until they are golden brown.  Watch them carefully J  remove with a slotted spoon and place on a slotted rack until slightly cooled.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Serves 3 to 4 people.  You may want to double the recipe because they disappear fast!  I also do this with sweet potatoes and put cinnamon and sugar on them instead of salt and pepper.

  1. There are many different ways to cook potatoes, ranging from straightforward boiling, baking, roasting and frying, to some rather elaborate recipes that call for a host of other ingredients to be added to the potato.Nice post.
