Chips, Chips!

“Da ti du di du Ci bum ci bum bum Da ti du di du Ci bum ci bum bum Da ti du di du.”  

Paolo Conte expresses exactly how I feel about chips when he sings this delightful gibberish.  To me, there’s nothing more moreish than hot chips.  Nothing.  Perhaps part of their appeal is knowing how short their shelf life is.  They must be eaten immediately.  The moment they go cold, so do I.  Below is my recipe for oven roasted chips.  Sorry there is no picture of the final product.  They were too delicious to stop and photograph.



oil (I like to use peanut or olive)
salt and pepper
*a tablespoon of freshly chopped herbs–parsley, rosemary, thyme

Parboil the wedges for 2 minutes.
Drain and dry on paper towels.
Arrange on a baking tray.  Drizzle with oil, salt and pepper, and fresh herbs if you like.

Bake for about 25-35 minutes or until crisp and golden brown.  Be sure to turn the chips over in the tray at least twice while baking.
Serve immediately.
