Irish blog The Daily Spud brings us this fabulous idea — Oven dried potato crisps (chips to us Yanks). Salt & Vinegar… mmmm!! Wouldn’t these be cute served in little paper food baskets?
And not fried, so they are actually a healthy snack… I’m wondering how these would come out in a sweet potato version.
Fond though I am of a proper bag of crisps, I don’t mind telling you that I am more than a little excited by these.
Paper-thin slices of potato, soaked in salt and vinegar, then dried to a crisp in the oven.
Yep, that’s dried, not fried.
I’ll grant you that these are not likely to usurp their fried-in-oil cousins anytime soon, but they do make a good case for themselves as a light and crispy snack in their own right. And they’re positively healthy to boot.
There’s a lot to like.
