Introduction: Baked Potato Chips

After a hard day of work this is the perfect dinner to have.

With a delicious coating these chips will be enjoyed by all.

Step 1: Cutting the Chips

Before you go to work select six good sized potatoes. Peel the potatoes and cut into slices 10 millimeters thick. Then cut these slices into individual chips.

Step 2: Precooking

Place your chips in a pot with a lid. Boil a jug of water and pour it into the pot until the chips are just covered. Put the lid on and leave to sit until you arrive back home from work.

Step 3: Preparing the Tray

When you get home put some beef fat onto your grilling tray and preheat in an oven at 200 degrees C or 392 F. Then put your fat into the oven to melt. I used rendered mutton fat. If your using oil you won't need to melt it like I did.

Drain your potatoes and lay them on a clean tea-towel and pat them until dry.

Step 4: Seasoning

The seasoning is quite simple all you need to do is mix up all of the ingredients and toss in a bowl with the potatoes. For the seasoning you will need:

  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 third of a cup of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of Cajon seasoning (for a stronger flavor add 1 tablespoon)
  • Or you could add a seasoning of your choice.

Step 5:

When the mutton fat has melted, carefully tip your potatoes onto it and turn to give them a complete coating of fat. Cook them in your preheated oven for about 15 minutes. Then turn the chips again and cook for another 15 minutes. When the chips are nearly done turn your oven onto grill at 250 degrees C or 482 F, and move your tray higher, then grill your chips until they are crispy and brown.

Step 6:

When the chips look golden and delicious, take them out of the oven and scoop them into a paper-towel lined colander. Give them a toss until the excess fat has soaked into the paper-towels.

Step 7: Tea Time

We complemented our dinner with some Fish Cakes and a bowl of Mayonnaise which tasted great.
