You Say Potaytoh, I Say Potahtoh

So, my container potato planting last year was a fail. The plants grew and grew beautifully, but when I dumped the dirt, everywhere there was a potato was a hollow place in the dirt. I don’t know if critters got it, or if there was something wrong with the potatoes.

Homemade Potato Chips

Posted by Hallee on Apr 21, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides, Snacks

My son Scott loves potato chips. Since potatoes are in the “dirty dozen”, I try very hard to just get organic potato chips. But, organic potato chips are SO EXPENSIVE. It doesn’t seem worthwhile to even buy that little tiny bag. Recently, Scott brought me a potato and said, “Can you make me some potato chips?” I love the fact that he deduced that potato chips come from potatoes, and that he was confident I could produce them. Which I did. They were amazing. Kaylee came home from softball practice and ate the leftovers, then asked if I would make them for her the next morning for her lunch. I will never purchase bagged potato chips again.

Scrumptious Sweet Potato Sticks

You can cut these steak fry size or quarter small sweet potatoes. Since my husband ensures that I have every kitchen gadget known to man, I have a commercial strength french fry cutter. Cutting sweet potatoes down to regular french fry size is very tasty. The large cut is perfect. When you get it just right, they are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Yummy!
