Just Like Steak N Shake Does It
Is there anything better than a Steak N Shake french fry? Thinly sliced, petite and salty? Yummmy! My husband was home today so he got a jump on dehydrating another 30 lbs of potatoes after the grocery store had a tremendous Thanksgiving special- 10# for less than $2.00! I said it would be great to have some homemade potato chips tonight too.
He got out the mandolin and began slicing, 12 trays in the dehydrator -to start- and a couple of potatoes into chips and, to top it off (drum roll please) Steak N Shake style fries!
We had to experiment with the chips a bit. The first ones were a little too thin and crispied up quickly. I have to tell you - they were still great! The thicker ones cooked a little better. They were good too! He sprinkled popcorn salt on them to give a nice overall coating but me, being the bad person that I am, added a few shakes of the regular stuff too.
Notice the old style stoneware? My resale shop find, a complete 12 piece set for $10. I love the old stoneware even if it does chip and crack! I have another complete set, even serving dishes, in the basement from a roadside estate sale!
