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?
Bowl of Homemade Parmesan Potato Chips…for one 🙂
Canola oil, (pot filled with 2 inches of oil)
1 large russet potato
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 to 3 tablespoons Parmesan Cheese
1. Heat oil in medium Dutch oven or other pot over medium heat. Place thermometer in oil and heat to 350 degrees F.
2. Thinly slice potato and in batches, carefully drop slices into hot oil once it’s reaches 350 degrees F. (I did 2 batches for 1 potato). Cook and stir potato slices until golden brown on each side, about 3 to 4 minutes per batch. Remove with a slotted spoon or a metal spyder as I have pictured above to a paper towel lined bowl or plate. Season with a pinch of salt and a pinch or two of Parmesan Cheese. Serve as desired. Best if eaten immediately 🙂
Makes 1 serving, double accordingly 🙂
Have a great rest of your week! Come back soon!
