Homemade Potato Chips


Here's an awesome tasting Homemade Potato Chips recipe from Dean and Deluca's recipe book. It's really easy to make, peel and thinly slice a couple of good sized russet potatoes, which I am sure is readily available in your kitchen. You'll be pleasantly surprised at how much chips (or crisps) you can yield from those 2 spuds! This homemade chips recipe is garlic flavored, impossible to stop munching after the first one! Anyway, if garlic flavored chips is not your deal, you can always substitute it with sea salt, black pepper, or some other seasoning of your choice. Enjoy!


Homemade Garlic Potato Chips

Ingredients

2 Medium or 1 Large Russet Potatoes, peeled
¼ Cup Olive Oil
4 Garlic Cloves, finely minced
Vegetable Oil for frying
2 tsp Sea Salt

Method

With a mandoline, slice potato into rounds as thin as possible. Rinse rounds with cold water until water runs clear, and dry potatoes thoroughly on paper towels.

In a small saucepan heat olive oil and garlic on low heat until garlic aroma is released, about 5 minutes. Place garlic and oil in blender and puree.

Heat vegetable oil in a large saucepan to 325˚F. Fry potatoes slices in several batches, stirring frequently with a slotted spoon, about 7 to 8 minutes. Place chips on paper towels to dry and sprinkle immediately with salt. Brush lightly with garlic oil. Serve immediately.
