I always loved to make my potato chips in the microwave, but lets be honest: nothing beets the real deal. So I thought I should try to make them in sunflower oil and see how they tasted.. Well I can honestly tell you that these are my new favorite potato chips! They taste so much better than store bought potato chips plus you can season them with whatever you like! You could try salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese, fresh herbs, paprika powder… This time I made them with just a little sea salt. And they are absolutely amazing!

How to make homemade potato chips
1. Peel off the skin of your potatoes and slice the potatoes really tin. I used a cheese slicer for this.
2. Rinse your potatoes under running, cold water. Put the potato slices in a bowl and add warm water and salt. I used 1 cup water and 1 tablespoon salt. You can multiply that if you need to. Your slices should be under the water. Let stand for at least 30 minutes and rinse again. Put everything on a paper towel and dab dry.
3. Heat up your sunflower until it’s 180 degrees Celsius. Put the potato slices in and fry until they are golden brown. Put them on a paper towel to remove the excess oil and season immediately with seasoning of your choice.
Bon Appetit! XO Wilma
