๐Ÿฒ Ingredients

Russet Potatoes ๐Ÿฅ” Russet potatoes are the best type of potato to make potato chips and that’s because they are starchy and low in moisture. Due to these qualities, these potatoes will crisp up and change colour when fried up.

Feta ๐Ÿง€ I love topping my homemade potato chips with feta because I’m a Greek gal who puts feta on everything. No, seriously feta adds a yummy saltiness to the top of your potato chips that pairs so perfectly. If you aren’t a feta gal, you can always melt other cheese on top or eliminate it.

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿณ How to Make Homemade Potato Chips

  1. Slice the potatoes super thin with a knife or on a mandolin if you have one – about 1/16 inches.
  2. In a large bowl add all the potato slices and fill with cold water, even adding some ice cubes to keep the water cold. Let soak for 30 minutes.
  3. Drain the potatoes and pat the potatoes as dry as you can get them.
  4. Add the dried potatoes to a dry bowl and season with olive oil. Toss to coat, ensuring all of the slices are seasoned.
  5. Set air fryer to 350F. Cook in batches and make sure you only have about one layer at a time of potatoes in the bottom of the basket, it’s ok if the potatoes are overlapping. Air fry for 12-15 minutes, flipping halfway through. Repeat with potatoes until they’re all cooked.
  6. Once all chips are cooked, season with garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, salt, pepper and toss gently. Top with crumbled feta and lemon zest (if desired).

๐Ÿ—’ Variations

There are so many ways you can use these chips. You can eat them plain, or you can top them with a variety of ingredients. Here are some ideas:

  • Use these as a base to make nachos with traditional toppings like melted cheese, green onions, salsa and sour cream
  • Sprinkle these chips with popcorn seasoning in flavors like Dill Pickle or Salt and Vinegar to replicate traditional chips
  • Think baked potato and top these chips with what you’d top a baked potato with like bacon bits, sour cream, and chives

๐Ÿ‘ How to Store Leftovers

Store your chips in an airtight container without any of the toppings. This will keep your chips free from outside moisture. Just make sure you cool the chips off before putting them in the container.

๐Ÿค” Common Questions

Why aren’t my potato chips crispy?

You want to make sure you use the right potatoes (russet). Soaking your sliced potatoes in ice water before frying will also help with the crunchiness.

Do you have to peel potatoes before making potato chips?

Scrub the potatoes clean or peel them. Leaving the skins on can add a bit of texture to your chip but really doesn’t overall impact the flavor.
