Home Made Potato Chips - Make your own and be as creative as you like with your flavorings! These are so easy to make and very flexible with the flavors. You can add any seasonings you like, and below, we have given you a few ideas. Take a look in your store cupboard at what seasonings and spices you have and feel free to test some on some chips.
I would suggest you set a handful of chips aside in a few different bowls and test out a variety of seasonings and go with the one you love the most!
This delicious recipe has been generously shared by one of our Lovefoodies supporters, Nicky Mercer. Nicky is always busy cooking and loves exploring new flavors and recipes. Here, Nicky decided she would make some potato chips for her family to snack on, and shares her recipe.
These homemade chips are very easy to do, and you can control the salt content, which is great for kids. Nicky only added a very small amount of salt for her kids and they loved them!
If you'd like to make up your own seasonings for your homemade potato chips, try mixing garlic salt with dried thyme, or maybe you'd like a little chili powder mixed with oregano! The sky's the limit so go with what you like.
Once done, you could really serve these with a dip or salsa, such as our popular pico de gallo. So refreshing and great for making ahead ready for a party!
We've got lots of snack ideas so if you're planning a party, add these lovely homemade chips to your list! Your guests will really enjoy them.

1. Peel and slice potatoes.
You can use a mandolin if you have one, or like I did, sliced by hand as thin as possible.
2. Rinse the starch off and pat them dry on a clean tea towel.
3. Heat the oil in the pan and when hot enough, add a few slices at a time so they do not stick together.
4. When the chips are brown or golden to your liking, remove them using a slotted spoon and transfer to kitchen paper then a metal bowl, or straight to the metal bowl.
Whilst they are hot, sprinkle your favorite seasonings and toss them in the bowl until the chips are all coated.
Keep tossing them until the chips are cooled to stop them from going soft. Then eat them!
