Chips / Wedges

Potato King may not be the most modest name to give to myself, but I’m pretty confident once you try out all my recipes to do with the good old fashion spud, you might just agree.

I am the potato king
Today we shall be talking chips. Homemade chips or wedges are always a fan favourite. Theres something about having them fresh, and knowing that you cooked them from scratch that just makes them taste SO much better than the frozen factory made stuff.

Different variations and flavours obviously apply to this recipe, but today I will be sharing my most favourite seasoning to marinate this great food in.

You will need:

  • Maris Piper potatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Thyme
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • Garlic Salt
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Panko Breadcrumbs

Start by pre heating your oven to 200 Degrees celsius.

Slice the potatoes (SKINS ON) to your desired shape, fry, chip, wedge, screw it you could have triangles if you wanted it. I go for the traditional approach of chip.

Once they are nicely sliced, place the potatoes in a pot of slightly salted boiling water and par boil for 5-10 minutes. Drain the water and give them a shake in the pan, this will fluff the edges up and create a nice crisp when you bite into them.

Chuck the potatoes in a roasting tin and start seasoning. Sprinkle over salt, pepper, smoked paprika, thyme, garlic salt and a little cayenne pepper (depending on how spicy you like it) then give them a toss.

Squirt over the juice of half a lemon then drizzle olive oil over the chips so they are all nicely coated. Finally sprinkle over some panko breadcrumbs and mix around, the oil will help the breadcrumbs stick to the potato giving an amazing crispy crunch at the end.

Cook for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown.
