I've always wanted to make homemade potato chips but never done it. Well today was that day.
I washed off some inexpensive potatoes - 10 pound bag for $1.79
then (without peeling the healthy skins) I thinly sliced them into paper-thin "chips" and heated up some inexpensive canola oil (one quart of oil for about $2.33) - I usually use olive oil for health reasons but just in case this didn't work out, I didn't want to waste the money.
Then I carefully placed the chips in the hot oil and let them boil away until they were a nice golden brown. (Actually I like mine a little 'extra' crispy so some were more than golden - more like cinnamon)
And what a yummy treat these were. They were like that car show - gone in 60 seconds. Lucky for my blossoming waistline, I wasn't the only one munching away.
Mom used to make homemade French fries when I was growing up but she never made these. Probably because they are weigh too yummy of a treat temptation. My only warning (for the weight-conscious readers) would be DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME because these chips are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than LAY'S and I just winked to the kids as I called them Kimbra FAY'S ;-)
