If salty savoury snacks can be your downfall when it comes to healthy eating, 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.
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 bow. But where is the fun in that? Homemade crisps are much easier to make than you would think and healthier too!
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 try and 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 mandolin, which had become our new “must-have” kitchen gadgets.
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 with these Homemade Crisps?
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 Homemade Crisps
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!
