These are a great alternative to normal chips. I did deep fry them in olive oil. Just a personal preference. I soaked the potatoes only in vinegar instead of water. They came out just like the salt and vinegar chips in the bag... it added a nice twist of flavor to these already awesome snacks.Thanks for posting Olha!
