Homemade Baked Potato Chips are made from russet potatoes, a bit of olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt. Perfectly pair these homemade chips with Dean’s Dairy Dip in one of their new bacon flavors- because everything tastes better with bacon!
Football season is coming to a close and the big game is approaching. I am preparing to host the big game and making plans to feed all the guys.
The must have food- chips and Dean’s Dairy Dip. Game time isn’t complete without this pair! Try Dean’s Cheddar Bacon Dip or Bacon Ranch Dip and give the guys what they want!
I really enjoy hosting events and feeding people. Game time events call for finger foods and convenient items. When planning your event, take that into account.
What items do you need to make your game time hosting a breeze?
- Football themed napkins.
- Football themed cups.
- Football themed plates.
- Drinks – you can even have your guests bring their own.
- Water bottles.
- Bowls to hold all the snack foods.
- Homemade Baked Potato Chips. Make one potato per guest and you can prepare these the day before the game.
- Menu ideas: hotdogs, mini hamburgers, meatballs, chicken wings, personal sized pizzas or pinwheel sandwiches.
- Just a few football themed decorations for the snack table like a table liner and a few paper footballs hanging down.
- Dean’s Dairy Dips.
Why choose Dean’s Dairy Dip for your game time snacking?
- Dean’s Dip is a refrigerated dip that delivers a dairy-fresh taste that guys and gals enjoy.
- Dean’s Dip is convenient and easy to use. Just open the container and start dipping.
- Dean’s Dip has a cool, creamy taste and texture.
You can easily find Dean’s Dairy Dip in the dairy section of your local retailer next to sour cream. There are many delicious flavors available but I recommend the new Dean’s Cheddar Bacon Dip because it is creamy, cheesy and loaded with that yummy bacon.
Homemade Baked Potato Chips
Homemade Baked Potato Chips are easy to make with only 3 ingredients! Also, feel free to add in your own mixture of seasoning for an extra punch of flavor. Add some parmesan cheese, garlic, peppercorn, herbs… whatever you can think of!
These baked potato chips took some trial and error. I tested out high temperatures, low temperatures, pre cooking the potatoes or not, ice baths, different slicing thickness and even multiple types of potatoes. The instructions below share my best found cooking method for the crispest, most consistent Homemade Baked Potato Chips for a game time snack that will surely be a hit.
Begin by peeling the russet potatoes and slicing them 1/8 inch thick with a mandoline. I recommend using a mandoline for this specific recipe to ensure even thickness and consistent cooking. Too thick will just make a scalloped potato (delicious but not what we want for today) and too thin will be hard to work with.
Once sliced, bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the potatoes for 3 minutes. Set your timer because you don’t want to overcook the potatoes at this step because they could start falling apart. Drain and set onto a towel to dry off.
Dump the potato slices into a bowl, add a bit of olive oil and mix together making sure to cover each potato evenly. I do not give an exact amount of olive oil for this recipe. Just a small drizzle will work great. Place each potato slice onto a parchment covered baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes. Remove the potatoes from oven to flip and then rotate the baking sheet. Bake another 15 minutes. Transfer potatoes to a cooling rack. At this point, there may be some potatoes left that need a bit more cooking so place those back in oven at 5 minute intervals until browned and crispy. Sprinkle a generous amount of Sea Salt over top as the chips are cooling.
