If I’m going to eat potatoes, they have to be exciting. I need that perpetually boring root veggie to have flavour, colour, and texture – otherwise, I can’t be bothered. This doesn’t have to be a huge feat, however, I’m perfectly happy with baby potatoes roasted with olive oil, tossed in sea salt, pepper, parsley, and a little fresh squeezed lemon juice (geez, what a potato diva!). Or, these mouth watering, almost too good homemade potato chips. They’re easy to make, and even easier to eat – and of course, everyone loves potato chips, so they’re great for entertaining.

This recipe serves two, so if you’re cooking for many people you’ll have to do them in batches ahead of time. If you’re entertaining, serve with a variety of dips (Salsa, Artichoke Dip, and French Onion Dip) and some Indian Pale Ale.


Baked Potato Chips for Two

3 small red potatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Garlic powder to taste (optional)

Slice the potatoes as thin as you can slice them (use a mandolin, if available). Rinse with cold water until water runs clear, then drain thoroughly. Toss in a large bowl with remainder of ingredients, and spread out in a single layer on two baking sheets lined with parchment. Cook in a 375 degree Fahrenheit oven for 20-30 minutes, until browned.

So cool! I especially like your serving suggestions - Pale Ale and those tasty dips? Sounds like one heck of a snack to me.

I think this also works well with eggplant :)
