If you love salty snacks, why not try making your own Homemade Garlic Crisps. Lower in fat than store bought crisps and the added bonus of making any flavour you like! These are so easy to make, and will really wow party guests. Especially when serve with some homemade dip.
Homemade Potato Chips
These homemade crisps are super simple to make and although they do take a little while to make up enough to feed a crowd, it is definitely worth the wait. Crispy, garlic-y, and oh so moreish.
Sure, you could just open a bag of crisps and dump them in a bowl. But where is the fun in that? Homemade crisps are much easier to make than you would think and healthier too!
Why should you try it?
✔ Healthier than store bought crisps
✔ Just a few ingredients
✔ Easy to adapt with your favourite flavours
How To Make Homemade Crisps - Step by Step:
One: Slice the potatoes as thin as possible. You can use a knife, but we used a mandolin, to get an even thickness.
Two: Coat a large baking tray with some spray oil and lay out as many potatoes as possible without any overlapping. Spray each individual potato slice with some more oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic.
Three: Bake in a preheated oven at 200C/400F/Gas 7 for 15 minutes, turning halfway through. Repeat until all the potato slices are cooked.
I am not sure I have ever seen garlic crisps for sale. Why is that not a thing? Never mind, because you can make your own. We kept the flavourings really simple with these crisps, and just used salt, pepper and garlic, but you could go all out!
The great thing about these crisps is that you can season them any way you like. Do fajita crisps sound like your thing? Add some fajita seasoning! You could go cajun, just some chilli, or even an Italian herb blend. BBQ seasoning would be really good too.
What To Serve These With
What are crisps without dip? If you are serving these up at a party, then wow your guests even more with some homemade dips. You could serve it with our Restaurant Style Salsa, Butternut Squash Hummus, Guacamole, or just eat them as they are.
How To Store Them
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!
Other Snack Recipes To Try:
- The key to making sure the potatoes are nice and crispy is making sure they don't overlap on the tray and not using too much oil.
- Feel free to get creative with the seasoning. We just used garlic, but you could use a fajita blend or even BBQ seasoning.
- To get the potatoes really thinly sliced and therefore crispy when cooked, use a mandolin.
