QUICK HOMEMADE POTATO CHIPS
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.
