Deliciously Bad For You- Swiss Chips!

I came up with the idea for Swiss Chips way back in college when I was working part time for a German deli in the mall. I spread a layer of potato chips on a plate, covered them with bits of swiss cheese and nuked them until they were bubbly and became one with the chips.

They loved them, but never priced them for sale. They would have made a bundle.

They are really good- truly they are, if you are a Swiss cheese lover. They are great on regular chips or ridged but most importantly, salty chips.

You could make so many variations on this theme. Why not try it on your re-hydrated potato slices, making a potato casserole that is layered with Swiss, Mozzarella and (oh goodness of all goodness- Provel cheese, a St. Louis favorite. This is not provolone, you have to get Provel). Crumble up crispy bacon in the layers too and serve it up all ooey-gooey.

Give it a try, unless you're afraid you'll get hooked. It can happen!

I've lost 4.5 pounds so far in the 16 days of Lent, so no I do not think I will be trying them...LOL. The look great though. :)

Good job, Manny! I've lost about 5-6 but not due to Lent. I've been sick plus I am still popping my jaw out of alignment, I can't eat things like sandwiches or chewy things at all. I found out my dental coverage will pay 80% of the cost for a mouth guard which should help with the alignment. I need to find a dentist on my plan that does TMJ guards.

So, are these the Scandinavian version of nachos?!? LOL!!
I love Swiss cheese and potato chips so I KNOW I would love Swiss Chips! :)

LOL- my husband just said if you chopped up some herring on top it would fit the bill!

Mmmm...herring! I SWEAR I must have some Scandinavian blood in my background somewhere! ;-)
