Homemade Potato Chips (Easy & Delicious)

    Homemade potato chips are awesome.  They taste soooo much better than store bought and are made without all the preservatives.

Homemade Potato Chips

russet potatoes
salt
oil

     Wash your potatoes.  We are a family of four (three of which or male).  We used 3 large potatoes.  Peel the potatoes and place the potatoes in cold water.

Peeling a potato

 Take your mandolin and slice the potatoes real thin.  Put the slices into the cold water as you slice them.

Slice them really thin.  As you can see, you can almost see through these.


   Heat oil in a deep skillet.  I put about 1/4" or a bit more of oil.  Let it get hot.  You need just enough oil to cover a thin layer of potatoes.  As the oil is heating, remove a small handful of potato slices and lay them on a clean hand towel.

Dried off and ready to be fried.

Blot off excess water and when the water is hot enough, gently drop a few in the oil at a time.  Do not put too many in.  Give them potatoes room to cook.  Turn the potatoes over after about a minute and a half. 

 Once both sides are nicely cooked, drain on a clean hand towel (we don't use paper towels at our home).  Transfer to a plate and gently salt them.

  Once cool they are ready to eat.  If they are not cooled all the way down, they taste good but do not crunch.  As they finish cooking, we place them inside the freezer so we can rapidly cool them off and enjoy them sooner.  :-) 

      These go great on hamburgers made with my homemade hamburger buns!
