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!
