Yesterday, I fell down an entire flight of stairs. Started at the top, ended at the bottom…shoeless, and very confused. Apparently checking for ice on outdoor stairs after a rainy night in sub-freezing temperatures is not second nature for this Texas girl. Lesson learned, my friend.
Lesson. Freaking. Learned.
As you can imagine, today my tush could use a little TLC.
Cue couch potato mode.
But what’s a couch potato without potato chips?? Nope, I’m not talking about greasy, super salty, grab bag chips. I’m talking about the good stuff…
Lucky for me, I have a fancy new mandolin that’s just itching to slice up some potatoes! I made these a couple nights ago for the Super Bowl and they are totally worth making again! I followed this recipe, which is so simple, I don’t know that you can really even call it a recipe.
Obviously you don’t need a mandolin to make these chips, but I transformed two potatoes into slivers in less than 1 minute….no big deal. I slice my potatoes super thin because 1) I like super crispy chips, and 2) I’m very impatient when it comes to this snack, and they cook in about half the time when they’re tiny.
You know I wasn’t going to settle for plain Jane salt now that I’ve gotten my hands on truffle salt. This really does give the chips that extra magic. I don’t recommend substitutions. But, to each their own.
Mindy Project, here I come!
