Homemade Potato Chips

  Potato chips are a quintessential piece to any summer barbeque, and this weekend I took them to the next level by making up a homemade batch. When it comes to making your own potato chips no real recipe is actually involved. You simply slice up your potatoes with the skin on (I used a this for thin and even slices), heat some canola or vegetable oil until it sizzles when a drop of water is added, cook until preferred crisp, remove from pan, lay on paper towels and season as you wish. The taste difference from homemade to packaged is incredible, and these have now turned into a get-together must have.

  2. Funny you should post on homemade potato chips- I made some a few weeks ago but I did not have a happy ending. The chips were delicious, but I managed to cut my finger seriously on a mandolin that we had just bought to make them. We used a fryer but cooking in a pan sounds much easier! yum!

  9. Oh my goodness, I'm drooling. Really, I am! I love homemade chips (especially with ranch dressing) but I've never actually made them myself. You make it seem so easy!
