Today I utilize another Christmas gift.
But this time, I am using the gift I gave to my parents, a Cuisinart Food Slicer. Maybe I am a bad son, or maybe just a little selfish, but as I purchased this item I began dreaming up all the wonderful food I could slice up and put on the blog! Setting my own greed aside, I hope my parents find their gift as useful as I do…
Anyways, onto the potato chips.
I experimented with three flavours: Ketchup, “Montreal Barbecue” and Dill Ranch (my favourite was the barbecue, then dill ranch, and ketchup last).
- Olive Oil (enough to brush potatoes)
- Ketchup popcorn spice
- Diane’s steak sauce (or any BBQ sauce)
- Montreal steak spice
- Ranch dressing
- Dill weed
As you can see, making potato chips is quite simple, slice your potatoes thin, put them in a ziploc bag with all the ingredients and mix everything around, then set in the fridge for about 10 minutes.
To cook, place chips on a cookie sheet and place in the oven for about 45 minutes on 375°F (or until crisp). After about 20 minutes take the pan out and flip the chips. This may also need to be done a few more times at the end if they are still not crispy enough. Once they are out of the oven, let them cool off a bit and enjoy them on their own or make these chips even better with your favourite dip!
