Have you ever purchased those kettle potato chips at the store? They are my favorite chips. I usually purchase the plain chips and sprinkle Cajun seasoning on top of them, delicious! However, last night I forgot to pick up my bag of chips at the store, so I thought I could make my own. I googled and found a recipe over at www.lifesambrosia.com. Her recipe is super easy and all you need is potatoes, 1 1/2 cups of oil and seasoning. Also, your kids will think you are really cool for making homemade potato chips.
What you will need:
3-4 potatoes thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups of vegetable oil
Your choice of seasoning
You will need a heavy two quart sauce pan. Heat the oil over medium high heat. While the oil is heating up, I peeled and sliced my potatoes. I used my food processor, that has a slicing blade. Once the oil is hot, place some of the potato slices in the oil. You will cook them for about 6 minutes, depending how thick your slices are. Mine were pretty thin and took about 4 minutes. Once they are done, take them out and place on a plate lined with paper towels. While they are hot add your seasoning, so it will stick. I used Cajun seasoning. However, you can have fun and try all kinds of seasoning (curry, sea salt, etc).
