Chips are one of those things that most of us have a love/hate relationship with. As delicious as they are, they’re also extremely addictive, and before you know it, ‘just a handful’ has turned into you slouching off of your couch, crumbs everywhere, and a feeling of despair as you stare into the empty plastic bag an hour later.
I came across some homemade chip recipes from Tasty, and because they’re so straightforward, I thought I would share them in this post in case anyone else out there would like to make potato chips into a slightly healthier version – it might help with the guilt when you do consume an entire bag in one sitting.
But, hey, you only live once. Eating a bag of chips every so often certainly isn’t going to make the world end.
Anyways, moving on.
Beginning with three gold potatoes, slice the spuds into large circles that resemble potato chips, leaving the skin on. Once you’ve cut up your three potatoes, place them in a large mixing bowl. Add one tablespoon of oil and toss together. Next, add some paprika and chilli powder, brown sugar, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and mix together until the potato slices are evenly coated with the spice and oil mixture. Lay the potato slices along a greased baking sheet, and bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes. Voila! You’ve just made yourself homemade barbeque chips, you little chef, you.
Be sure to check out the Tasty video I linked above to learn how to make different flavour variations of these tasty chips, for example, cheddar, salt and vinegar, and cool ranch.
Making homemade chips is a healthier and more cost-effective alternative compared to store-bought tater chips, plus they’re incredibly easy to make.
What are you waiting for? Let’s get cooking!
