  • ¼ - ½ cup friendly fat to fry in pastured lard, tallow, bacon grease, coconut oil, avocado oil, palm oil, butter
  • Organic potatoes enough to feed your crew While I don't afford to buy all of my produce organic, potatoes are one that I do since they are a root veg in the ground, are heavily pesticided and almost always on the "Dirty Dozen" list
  • Sea salt to taste
  • You can season your chips how you like! Onion powder pepper, etc – plain sea salt is my favorite though!


  • Slice your potatoes very thin using a mandolin or very sharp knife.
  • Melt your friendly fat of choice in a very hot skillet or fry pan and place a layer of the sliced potatoes in – the potatoes shouldn’t be on top of each other.
  • Flip the potatoes over after a couple minute of frying and cook the other side to your desired texture, remove the potatoes to drain on a paper towel or cloth. Don’t overlap them or they will steam each other and not get crisp as they dry and cool off.
  • Season the cooked potatoes and put the next round of potatoes in the pan and cook the same way.
  • If you have leftover chips you can store them in the fridge and serve from there.
