On Monday I posted about the perfect gnocchi. During the gnocchi-making process, I was standing over a pile of freshly peeled potatoes thinking, “there must be something to DO with these tater skins.”
If I had a nickel for every time I’ve said that…I’d have ONE nickel!
Anyway, I figured I could toast them in my toaster oven (a regular oven would work just as fine too) and make my own baked tater skin chips.
And I figured correctly! Here’s what you do:
What You Need:
The skins of about 4 (or more) Idaho/baking potatoes. You can even leave some of the potato flesh on there for a meatier chip.
A drizzle of olive oil
A pinch of sea salt
What To Do:
Heat up your oven to 350 degrees.
Place a sheet of tin foil on a baking sheet and spread out your tater skins on the foil.
Drizzle them with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. You don’t need too much!
You can give them a good mix to make sure each skin is properly coated in oil and salt.
Pop them in the oven and toast until crispy – but don’t burn them!
Crumble them and put them atop a salad
Have them as a side to your “sangwich“
Distribute them in small bowls around your apartment as party snacks for your next shindig
I think they would go nicely with roasted brussel sprouts.
