Homemade Potato Chips

This is what happens when your husband watches Food Network!  He saw a show about a place on the East Coast which serves Ribs N' Chips.  Homemade potato chips to be exact.  Since we were going to have hamburgers for dinner making chips seemed like the right thing to do.  It was really quite easy, especially since Rowdy did all the work.

Thinly slice potatoes.

Soak slices in a bowl of ice water to do something to the starch...not sure what.

Some more great photography!  Pat the potatoes dry on a towel.

Heat oil to 350 degrees in the magic pot.  Once oil is hot, drop in a layer of chips and fry until golden.

Drain on a paper towel and try not to eat them all before you cook the hamburgers.


Homemade Potato Chips
  • Russet potatoes, with or without peels
  • Canola oil
  • Salt or seasoning of choice
Thinly slice potatoes with whatever method you have.  I used my Kitchen Aid slicer/grater attachment.  You could also use a food processor or a really sharp knife.  Soak potatoes in a bowl of ice water for at least one hour.  After soaking potatoes, pat dry with a non-fuzzy towel.  Heat oil to 350 degrees.  We have an instant read thermometer that we stuck in to see when oil was hot enough.  Start frying potatoes in small batches until golden brown and drain on paper towels.  Sprinkle with salt immediately upon removing from grease.  I liked my a little chewy (but still cooked all the way) and everyone else liked them really crispy.
