Homemade Salt & Vinegar Chips

I recently found a recipe on Pinterest that I decided to try out this morning. Homemade salt and vinegar chips. Vinegar, to me, is the perfect addition to any food. I will eat balsamic vinegar in mac and cheese, on pizza, rice, crackers, you name it. I feel pretty confident that my body is composed of 60% vinegar instead of water.

These chips were DELICIOUS and disappeared within about 5 minutes (glad nobody was home to witness that). I didn’t have fingerling potatoes, but yukon gold potatoes worked perfectly. Give them a try, you won’t be sorry!

Salt and Vinegar Broiled Fingerling Potatoes

Adapted from Martha Stewart Living, June, 2009
serves 4

1 pound fingerling potatoes, sliced lengthwise to 1/4-inch thickness*
2 cups white vinegar
Extra virgin olive oil
Kosher Salt

1. In a small pot, combine the potato slices and vinegar. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer until fork-tender, about 8 minutes. Let cool in liquid for 30 minutes. Then drain well and pat potatoes dry with paper towels.

2. Preheat the broiler with a rack about 6 inches below the heat source. Dump the potato slices onto a sheet pan, sprinkle very generously with olive oil, salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Arrange the potato slices in a single layer. Broil until lightly browned on top, about 7 minutes. Then flip the slices and broil until the underside is lightly browned, about 5 minutes more. Serve warm.

  2. Oh my god these look incredible. I also think that I’m made of approximately 60% vinegar. After cooking for some friends a couple of times one of them said “wow, you must really like balsamic vingar, huh”, since I incorporated it into every single recipe I could. Needless to say now I’m trying to keep my vinegar eating more on the down-low. Which is why I’ll be trying your recipe, for myself, tonight. Thanks!

    • Hahaha I hear you! I think vinegar is good on EVERYTHING! Last night I was dipping salt & vinegar potato straws into mustard MmMmmMMm.

      Yeah these little chips are awesome, I hope you like them!
