4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 Russet Potatoes
  • 3 T Fresh Rosemary
  • 3 T Fresh Sage
  • 4 T Freshly Grated Parmesan

Method

  1. Wash thoroughly and peel 2 russet potatoes using cold running water.
  2. With either a sharp knife, peeler or mandolin, slice the potatoes into even sized circles.
  3. Place all potatoes into cold water and store overnight in a refrigerator. This does 2 things: it pulls the starch out of the potato to make for a crisper chip, but also keeps the potato from browning/oxidizing.
  4. In a heavy bottom pot, such as a cast iron skillet, set canola oil over medium heat and bring oil up to 375 degrees F.
  5. Once the oil comes to temp, fry the potatoes in batches until golden and crispy.
  6. Right before pulling the potatoes, drop in your fresh sage and rosemary.
  7. Drain the chips and fresh herbs, dry well on paper towels and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  8. Using your vegetable peeler or cheese grater, finely shave Parmesan cheese over chips with fresh herbs.

For a healthier alternative: If you do not have a deep fryer, the potatoes can be baked. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place potatoes on a sheet tray and cover with fresh herbs (Sage/Rosemary).  Bake in the oven for until the chips begin to brown and the herbs start to perfume. Once you remove the chips from the oven, using your vegetable peeler or cheese grater, finely shave Parmesan cheese over chips with the fresh herbs.
