Ever been in the mood to just make a batch of homemade chips…for just yourself? Well, I did, just last week as a matter of fact. I was looking at the bag of potatoes in my kitchen and it was as if they were just asking me to turn them into salty, golden brown, crispy chips…..so I gave in and said, why not!

You wanna know the coolest part? This fun bowl for me, myself, and I only took about 10 minutes from start to finish. Before I knew it, I was crunching on crispy homemade chips. It was awesome 🙂 ……then my husband came home from lunch and stole the bowl from me. Little stinker.

Next time you pass by a “spud” in your kitchen, turn that russet into a devilish little snack for yourself. Put them in a pretty little parchment lined bowl and eat em’ like no one is looking, lol! Can you tell that’s what I did?


4 Ingredients for Homemade Parmesan Potato ChipsHere you have it, Left: salt, a potato, Parmesan (shredded or grated is fine) and canola or vegetable oil.

How to Make Parmesan Potato Chips

Thin Slices of a Russet PotatoUse a sharp knife, be very careful and slice your potato very thinly. If you have a mandolin, that is a much better option. I was too lazy to pull mine out of the back of my cupboard.


Frying Potato SlicesFill your pot full with about 2-inches of oil and heat it to 350 degrees F. When the oil has reached temperature, carefully drop your potato slices in. I do this in 2 batches, per one potato.

Crispy Homemade Potato ChipsThis metal spyder comes in very handy for this task, however a heat  proof slotted spoon will do the trick too. Let these slices cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until golden brown on both sides.


Topping Homemade Parmesan Potato Chips with ParmesanTime to season. I was in the mood for just salt and Parmesan, but can you just imagine the fun seasonings you can play with?!
