It’s National Potato Chip and Dip Day – or Crisp and Dip Day to those of us in the U.K. Whilst desserts will always have a special place in my heart, or stomach, I am definitely more of a savoury person. It was actually only when I met Dave and his sweet tooth that I discovered a love of chocolate. Thanks Dave! *sarcasm*. I would always choose a salty snack over a sweet one and crisps are my snack or choice, and sometimes my downfall.
I am always of the mindset that if I am going to eat something that is traditionally not very healthy, then I am going to make it myself so it’s that little bit healthier and that’s what we have done with these Homemade Garlic Crisps.
How easy are homemade crisps to make! Well, I am guessing that if you are reading this recipe then you didn’t realise, but they really are. The key to making homemade crisps is slicing them really thin so they get nice and crispy. We did this by using a mandoline, which had become our new “must-have” kitchen gadgets.
Whether you want to thinly slice potatoes to make these crisps, or chop up salad vegetables in a flash, then a mandoline is a handy little thing to have in your kitchen. Just be careful with your fingers!
What is great about making your own crisps is that the flavour options are endless. We went with garlic because we are firm believers that you can never have too many garlic based recipes in your life. But you could do cheese and onion, or salt and vinegar. Throw some BBQ seasoning on there for some BBQ flavoured crisps too.
If you can manage to resist them that long, these will last a day or two in an air tight container. We always make a big batch up whenever we have guests over and they don’t last long. So, if you are having a party, give these a try and I can guarantee that your guests will be asking for the recipe!
- 2 large potatoes, sliced very thinly
- spray oil
- sea salt and ground black pepper
- Garlic powder
Firstly, coat a baking tray with spray oil and lay out as many potato slices as possible, so none overlap.
Spray each individual slice with more oil.
Season with the garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Bake at 200°C for 15 minutes, turning halfway through.
Repeat until all slices are cooked.
Finally, serve with a dip of your choice (optional).
