This is week 13 of Reddit’s 52 Weeks Of Cooking Challenge. The theme this week is potatoes. The last time I made and ate potatoes was on Thanksgiving. I used this recipe and they were the absolute best mashed potatoes I have ever eaten. Butter truly does make everything better. We have not been offered potatoes this year in our full diet CSA, as something unfortunate happened to the crop. We have not missed them though, as all Winter I have been obsessed with cabbage. My absolute favorite potato product is potato chips, so this week I made baked salt and pepper potato chips.
I tried baking potato chips, and then frying them, and then baking them again. All failures I might add. Most were still soft and mushy and some were grainy, and flavorless. Just when I was ready to throw in the towel, and quit this challenge, I opened the oven door to some potato slices I had just left in a low oven to see what would happen. I salted them, tried one and it was light and crispy and flavorful, just amazing! I was overjoyed.
I salted and peppered them, and made a simple yogurt dipping sauce with garlic powder, dried dill, salt and pepper.
I just wanted you to see how paper thin, light and crispy they are. If you sprinkle salt on them as soon as they come out of the oven, it will stick.
These chips take a long while in the oven, but if you have two sheet trays of them, they will make enough for a yummy appetizer, or side dish, or even an romantic evening snack with some sparkling wine. Use them in the place of crackers for cheese and fruit plates, or toss them in your kids lunchbox, as a crunchy treat. Of course you can also pair them with a creamy dip. If you have any of these chips left over, there are cookie recipes out there that use potato chips as an ingredient. However you decide to eat them, please share, and enjoy them with your family and friends.
