Recipe by Hey Jude

Homemade potato chips are one of my favorite comfort foods. I especially love them when they're purple and gold, but regular russets are good too.

OK, how can you NOT give a buttery-crisp, home-made potato chip anything BUT 5 stars. Nothing complex as a recipe, no weird ingredients, but honest-to-goodness addictive taste. (I shouldn't have made these - I've eaten nearly all of them!) Yes, I recommend the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat clarified butter and oil in a medium, deep saucepan to 300°.
  2. Cut unpeeled potatoes into paper thin slices; deep-fry in batches for 4-5 minutes or until crisp and oil around chips is no longer bubbling.
  3. (Moisture in potatoes causes the bubbles; once the bubbles stop, the chips will be crisp) Drain on paper towels; sprinkle with kosher salt.
