Homemade Old Bay Potato Chips

Circa 1975, my mom use to make homemade potato chips. Oh! All I can remember is that I loved those chips. I think that’s why I’m so addicted to potato chips. I hate to admit it, but you really can’t eat just one.

To go with our Tuna Melt Muffins, I decided to make Old Bay chips. It is a perfect side dish for these muffins, and so easy.

You’ll need


Vegetable oil

Old Bay Seasoning

A brown paper bag

An Aluminum Foil Bag (for storage)

Let’s get started…

I use a mandoline slicer to help get the slices nice and thin.

Once the slice is crisp and brown on both sides remove from the oil, and add it straight to your brown paper bag.

Sprinkle in Old Bay to the bag, close it and toss it. Check your chips to make sure the seasoning is nicely distributed. It doesn’t have to be perfect. If you want more Old Bay, add it. I just love Old Bay. It’s great for seafood dishes. Nom!

The best freshness is when you make and serve. However, if you want to make a lot for leftovers, I recommend you store in a foil bag. It helps keep the chips crisp.

What’s your favorite flavor of chips? Let me know because this girl likes to eat.
