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?!

    Oh my goodness, Jenny! These are right up my alley. I’m certain I wouldn’t be able to stop eating these pretty chips.

  2. Darla @ Bakingdom

    I always love homemade potato chips…never thought to try them with parmesan. Thanks for the great idea!

  3. Leanne @ Healthful Pursuit

    Wow, these look amazing and they’re so simple! We like making our chips in the microwave… I know it sounds weird, but it works! I’ll have to try doing it this way!

  4. Lisa @ Write, Pray, Love

    If you’re feeling particularly frisky, you can also drizzle a bit of shredded Mozzarella and some chicken gravy over them for a poutine-like dish that will blow your mind. No, really, it’s unforgettable. We do it with fries all the time. Try it and you’ll see.

  5. SusieBee (Eat Little, Eat Big)

    Wow, they look very appetizing and sound easy to make. My hubby would love them! Beautiful photos!

  7. Monique @ Make Me Drool

    These are the yummiest looking chips I’ve ever seen. I love homemade chips, but I’ve never thought to make them at home. Thanks for the idea and recipe!

  8. jen @ the baked life

    oh these look yummy. Never attempted homemade chips before, you may have persuaded me 🙂

  9. Heather of Kitchen Concoctions

    I haven’t taken the time to make homemade potato chips in years. Thanks for reminding me how yummy they are!

    I will have to try this with the cheese! A healthier version is to just line a cookie sheet with foil and line the potato slices up in rows. Sprinkle with just a little bit of oil (it doesn’t even need to have it on all of them, then add the salt and bake at 325 for 20 minutes…) I have been trying to stay away from the fried foods lately.

    I was just looking at a couple of potatoes in my cupboard this morning, wondering what I was going to do with them!

  13. Jen @ keepitsimplefoods

    Love that this recipe is for one because I could certainly eat them all. They look too good to share! 😉

  14. Amanda N

    Oh those look evil! I really need to get a thermometer like that. I haven’t ever fried anything on my own. Do you have a lot of splatter?

  15. Lori @ RecipeGirl

    What a fun little snack idea! My little guy would love these for an after-school snack. The things I never think to make…!

  16. Corinna @ the fire chiefs wife

    I had to laugh when I read you were to lazy to pull your mandolin from the cupboard, because that is so me. Very impressed with your thin slices. I can’t wait to try these.

    1. Jenny

      I know Corinna, For some reason, I keep my mandolin in the very back of my cupboard which is just too inconvenient, lol!

  17. Erin

    Parmesan fries are great, but potato chips? I’ve definitely got to try these. Especially since I can make a batch just for me!

  18. marla {family fresh cooking}

    Jenny not only is this idea fabulous but that top photo is one of my all time favorites. The lighting and the color is gorgeous!

  19. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga)

    Easy, 3 ingredients, and a crowd pleaser, I can tell that for sure! Great recipe, Jenny! I always love as FEW ingredients as possible. Yum!
