We know potato chips are easy to just buy ... but it's hard to beat a home-fried and custom-seasoned potato chip made from russet potatoes.
Servings and Ingredients
|6 large russet potatoes, unpeeled|
|canola oil, for frying|
|¼ c. dry ranch seasoning, or as needed|
|2 tbsp. blackening seasoning, or as needed|
|Sea salt, as needed|
Things To Grab
- Wash and clean the potatoes in cold running water. Using a mandoline, or vegetable peeler, finely slice the potatoes into chips. Drop the chips into a bowl of water as you work to prevent them from going brown. This will also remove any excess starch.
In a heavy Dutch oven, heat oil to 375 degrees (use a thermometer to keep a consistent temperature). When it's hot enough, drain the potatoes and blot with paper towels to dry.
Lower batches of potatoes into the oil using a slotted spoon. They will expand and fry very quickly; stir with a heavy metal spoon as they fry to achieve even browning.
Remove with a slotted spoon when they're nice and golden and crisp, about 3 to 4 minutes, into a large bowl. Immediately sprinkle with ranch seasoning, blackening seasoning and salt until desired flavor is reached. Repeat with remaining potatoes and serve.
