If you’re looking for a unique, delicious, non-fried way to serve crispy potatoes, try our Roasted Shredded Potato Crisps with onions. Really good!
I made these three times this week to get the proportions right and here’s what my husband said. “These are delicious! And they seem lighter than fries because they’re so skinny, so I could probably eat a lot more of them without extra calories!” OK, so his last statement was probably wishful thinking!
For those who celebrate Hanukkah, these potato “crisps” taste a bit like latkes (potato pancakes). There are, however, no eggs, no frying, no flour (so gluten free) and no smelling up the house. The preparation is very quick if you have a food processor with a grater blade. A box grater or mandolin with a julienne blade will also work with just a bit more effort. I have to admit I was surprised to see how long they took to roast to a nice brown crispiness (at least 30 minutes) at 425-450F, but they are worth the wait.
These roasted shredded potato crisps were great served with steak, pork chops and chicken. And I’m sure they are also good with hot dogs and burgers or just about anything. The other kook, my daughter, wants to try them on a salad for a warm crunch factor. Why not? I think they would also make a unique appetizer. Just pile them on a plate with a fork and tell your guests to help themselves. They do lose heat quickly, though, as they are so thin, but I found them still delicious at room temperature which is how I eat a lot of food now after taking photographs. 🙂
- Use pre-julienned matchstick carrots purchased at the store. They worked fine, but I think the fresh carrots had more flavour.
Tailor to your Taste
- Leave out the carrots or onions.
- Try different seasonings such as thyme or chili powder or a pinch of garlic powder.
- Serve with a dipping or drizzling sauce like pesto mixed with mayonnaise, basil blended with mayonnaise, Dijon mayo or good old Ketchup.
