It seems like any time I pick up a bag of salt and vinegar potato chips at the store I end up unhappy. Some are way, way, way too salt and vinegar-y. You know, open the bag, breath in, pass out. Others, I swear the bag was mis-labelled because I don’t get even a hint of salt and vinegar. The solution? Quick fix chips that have just the right amount of salt, and just the right amount of vinegar! Score!
I prefer wavy ruffled chips for my quick fix salt and vinegar potato chips. First, they’re thick, so they hold up to any tossing required to get the seasoning evenly spread on each and every chip. Second, they have ridges that hold more seasoning than plan old flat chips. That means great flavor in each and every bite!
Of course, you can make homemade potato chips in a deep-fryer and then toss them in the seasoning too! Just don’t over-drain the chips as they come out of the hot oil or the flavors won’t have anything to adhere to. Make sure you get them good and coated.
