Homemade Potato Chips

These are a quick and easy go-to for some yummy chips. I don't think they are really any healthier than eating processed potato chips out of a bag, but they are fresh and once you get the knack of frying them, terrific! We make them all the time.

1-4 Potatoes (depending on how many people you are feeding and how long you want to cook)
canola oil for frying


  1. Peel and slice your potatoes thinly. You can leave the skins on if you like. You can hand cut or use a food processor to cut your potatoes. Since you fry in batches, you can have slightly uneven cuts.
  2. Add an inch or so of canola oil to a Dutch oven or deep cast iron pan.
  3. Heat oil to about 375ºF. 
  4. Add the potatoes so that they are a single layer in the fryer. Flip after a few minutes. Fry until you see a nice golden brown and the chips are at your preferred crispy level.

I eat these as is and the child puts ketchup on them.
