recipe notes & tips


What Kind of Potatoes Should I Use?

Russet or Yukon gold work best for potato chips. I used 4- medium size russet potatoes for ours and they turned out perfectly. Also, peeling the potatoes is optional!

Oil

Sunflower, peanut, canola or vegetable oil are all great options for making potato chips.

Tips for Great Chips

  • Keep a close eye on your oil temperature. It should be anywhere from 350-365 degrees when it’s ready to go. See recipe card for the thermometer I use.
  • Don’t forget to soak your potato slices before frying. This will help remove some of the starch and help you achieve a crispier chip.
  • The thinner your chips, the better. I like to use a mandolin slicer. This is noted in the recipe card too!
