Yesterday I decided to save money by making homemade chips instead of buying them. This was the first time I have ever cooked homemade chips but oh my gosh they were delicious!
So first of all I only used 4 small potatoes and that was surprisingly enough.
I decided to peel the skin off of two potatoes and leave the skin on the others; just to have a variety.
I then sliced the potatoes into thin slices.
Then I boiled the potatoes until I was able to put a fork through the chips – but not so that they were too soft.
After I put salt, pepper and thyme on them and fried then in a frying pan. I put enough oil in the pan so that it covered half of the chips.
Once the chips were brown, they were done.
I decided to have my homemade chips with chicken pieces and corn on the cob – weird mix – but I had to eat my corn on the cob before it went out of date.
Here is my finished meal (with cheese on top of the corn on the cob)…
