Statistics say that during this holiday season, most of us will create approximately 5-8 lbs. of Potato Skin Peelings, and that’s at the very least! Yep, that’s per household~MIND BLOWN! How crazy is that, and 99% of the time they will get tossed into the trash all unloved and unappreciated! Aww..Poor Peels! 🙁
Why throw those nutritious un-sung heroes away when you can create a huge pile of salty & seasoned, crispy skins that will rival any Potato Chip out there?..hmm?! Seriously..these rustic rejects turn out to be the tastiest ‘re-purpose’ that this generation will ever see..lol! Serve up a pile of these unique & light chips for snacking or even as a crispy and surprising way to top any casserole!
So next time you find yourself with a mountain of Potato Peels, don’t think rubbish, think yummish….Ooo that was bad!
But who knew recycling could be so tasty?! 🙂
What you’ll need:
Cleaned and dried Potato Peels ..any variety of Potato will work!
4 Tbsp. Olive Oil
S&P to taste
A pinch of Thyme..or any other spices you prefer
A large Zip bag
Into the bag toss the peels with the Olive Oil, S&P, and Thyme.
Bake in a single-ish layer on a baking sheet at 375 degrees for approx. 15 minutes, or until golden and crispy.
Snack away, or sprinkle them on the top of any casserole during the last 5 minutes of baking for a unique crunchy surprise!
