Crispy Double-Fried Homemade Potato Chips

Crispy, chunky, and deliciously good, this homemade country-style chips recipe beats French-fries hands-down! And, they’re the perfect side dish to serve with your Wisconsin-style Friday night fish-fry.

It wasn’t until I married my husband that I’d had what his family called homemade potato chips. Making them was my father-in-law’s specialty. And the secret trick he taught me for making them super delicious was to double-fry them.

He always used buttery tasting Yukon Gold Potatoes sliced to just the right thickness for a hearty chip that would crisp up just right.

When frying the potatoes, he’d flash-fry them to eliminate moisture; then, he’d fry them again to ensure the crispness.

You won’t believe how this method changes everything you ever thought you might have known about frying potato chips.

Equipment

  • Deep Fryer or Large heavy pot
  • Deep-fry thermometer
  • Slotted Spoon
  • Large bowl
  • Cooling rack
  • Baking sheet

Ingredients

Try serving with this yummy aioli chip dipping sauce

  • 3 tablespoons prepared salsa
  • 3 tablespoons gluten-free mayonnaise
  • A squeeze of lemon juice

Instructions

  • Begin by washing Yukon Gold potatoes, cut off any blemishes or bad spots, leaving most of the skin on, then cut them into chunky slices about ¼-inch thick.
  • Place potato slices in a large bowl, toss with salt, pepper, and onion powder, add lukewarm water to cover potatoes completely and let soak for 30 minutes. Doing this helps to remove excess starch from the potatoes and keep them from oxidizing.
  • Heat oil to 325º F in a deep fryer or alternately use heavy pot and deep-fry thermometer.
  • Remove the potatoes from the water soak, and pat dry to remove the excess water.
  • Using a fry basket, slotted spoon or spider strainer, add the potatoes, about two handfuls of potatoes at a time in batches, to the hot oil. Cook 5-7 minutes until the chips begin to float and are light-colored but not browned. Remove potatoes with a slotted spoon and let drain and cool on a wire rack positioned over a tray lined with paper towels. Keep at room temperature for up to a few hours before the final fry to finish them. Repeat until all the potatoes are par-cooked.
  • Meanwhile, make the aioli dipping sauce. Add salsa and mayo in a small bowl, whisk to combine — season to taste, adding a little lemon juice if you like.
  • When ready to finish cooking, heat the oil to 350º F. Return the par-cooked potatoes to the oil, approximately two handfuls at a time, cooking about 1 minute on each side until golden brown. Remove from oil with a slotted spoon, shaking off excess oil, and season lightly with salt and pepper. Repeat until all potatoes are twice-fried.

Footnotes

Keep potatoes warm in a 250ºF oven until ready to serve.

G-Free Deliciously

Being creative, cooking, fresh veggies, the violin, decorating for holidays, sewing, hand-quilting, cowgirl boots, country music, fresh herbs in pots, blowing dandelions to the wind, walking barefoot in the grass, hanging out with eclectic interesting people, reading, writing, warm lazy summer days, and yoga!

Gluten, cilantro, mixed vegetables (the frozen kind I grew up with), negativism, rudeness, narcissism, overstaying a welcome,
not helping out, liars, promiscuity, cockiness, know-it-alls, being overly-dramatic, goal-less-ness, poor hygiene, chauvinism, lacking a sense of humor, excessive competitiveness, Laziness, horrifying spellers, people-bashing, criticism and mockery of others and their beliefs, flakiness (because flaky people are really unappealing), more swagger than substance, people who constantly manage others (those folks who think they have all the answers…)

Lambrusco, my iPad, popcorn suppers, dark chocolate, cookbooks, Almond-Rocca, historical romances, sun-bathing, weekend coffee with a good book in bed, PBS cooking shows, romantic comedies, cozy sweaters, fuzzy socks, and fragrant bubble baths with soft music and wine…
