Homemade Chips

posted in: Recipes 0

Homemade potato chips are a tricky thing to get right. If you cook them too long they get dark brown and have a burnt taste, but if you don't cook them enough they are flimsy. My trick is to bake them in the oven for a good 7 to 8 minutes before frying, just to get rid of some of the water.

  • 4 Russet Potatoes
  • Oil for Frying
  • Salt


  • Heat oven and the frying oil to 325 degrees.
  • Set the mandolin to the thinnest setting and shave the potatoes. You wanted to be paper thin. You can also use a knife, but it's hard to get them consistent and thin enough.
  • Line the potato on a wire rack like shingles.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 7 to 8 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and put into the oil.
  • Stir with a wooden spoon to make sure that one side doesn't get darker than the other.
  • Fish them out of the oil and place onto a paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle with salt and enjoy.
