Potato Peel Fries
Name a more iconic duo than a burger and chips. I’ll wait. I’m pretty sure there is nothing better than a hot, crispy bowl of fries on the side of a big juicy burger.
These Potato Peel Fries are the perfect way to save your potato skins for a sustainable spin on chips. Delicious AND waste free? Now we’re talking.
Ingredients (Serves 4):
- 200g potato peelings (roughly 6 large potatoes)
- Vegetable oil (enough to half-fill a deep frying pan)
- Your choice of seasoning, we like: rosemary & garlic salt, BBQ fajita or tikka spice
Method (10 mins):
Step 1: Peel 6 large potatoes and sit the skins in a bowl of kitchen paper to soak up excess moisture. You can also use saved potato skins from your last roast – just store the peels in an airtight container filled with cold water in the fridge.
Step 2: While the skins are drying, heat a large, wide based frying pan half-filled with vegetable oil
Step 3: Once the oil is hot, carefully drop the skins into the pan so they sizzle on contact with the oil – careful of hot splashes!
Step 4: Fry the potato skins until they curl, go crispy & turn golden brown, then remove from the oil
Tip: If you’d prefer a lighter option, try adding your skins to a tray with a drizzle of oil and baking them till golden instead. No sizzle, same flavour!
Step 5: Once fried, add the skins to a bowl with kitchen roll to drain off any excess oil
Step 6: Season the skins by tossing in your chosen spice mix while they’re still warm, or just top with salt then tuck in!
