7 Ways to Potato: Potato Chips

If your character in 7 Days to Die isn't already a hundred pounds overweight from eating potatoes nonstop, we've got one more recipe that you can make to satiate your infinite desire for potato products. Who doesn't love potato chips!?

Ingredients

  • 1lb rainbow fingerling potatoes
  • 2 quarts peanut or vegetable oil
  • Salt

Directions

  1. Wash all of the tiny potatoes and pat dry with a paper towel
  2. Using a mandolin set to slightly less than 1/8-inch or a paring knife, cut the potatoes into thin slices.
  3. As you cut, drop the slices into a large bowl of cold water to soak. If the water gets cloudy, simply drain it away and add new cold water.
  4. Heat oil in a 5-quart Dutch oven over high heat to 400°F
  5. Drain the water from the slices and pat them dry THOROUGHLY. Too much water on the surface of the potato can result in a dangerous oil flare up and a huge mess.
  6. Add one handful of slices to the oil using a wire mesh spider. Cook until they begin to turn a light golden brown, only a few minutes.
  7. Remove the slices and place them in a bowl lined with paper towels to drain off excess oil. Season with salt and other spices immediately. Repeat for the rest of the uncooked slices.
