Saratoga Chips

Last night my hubby asked for me to fix a frozen pizza for supper. I excitedly asked, “are you sure?”. YES! An easy supper was in my future. It’s always fun to take a break from the norm and have something easy. I was trying to think of something to have with our pizza when hubs suggested Saratoga Chips. Oh yes, my favorite side dish from one of my favorite Cincinnati restaurants – Montgomery Inn. I have basically been addicted to their BBQ sauce (which is sold in stores, thankfully) since I was a little girl. It’s pretty much the only BBQ sauce I eat! Montgomery Inn serves these homemade chips called Saratoga Chips with their famous Montgomery Inn BBQ sauce to dip them in…….it’s heaven. Fortunately, they are very easy to make at home so we don’t have to break the bank to fulfill our craving. 🙂

I simply washed, peeled and sliced 3 potatoes about 1/8 of an inch thick.

Deep fry them in some hot oil for 3 – 5 minutes depending on the thickness of the potatoes. I prefer mine crunchy on the outer edges and slightly chewy in the center. Hubs prefers them crunchy all the way through.

Finish them off with a healthy (or should I say unhealthy) dose of salt and you’re ready to go!

To get the most authentic taste, heat some Montgomery Inn BBQ sauce in the microwave for 20 – 30 seconds. Warming it up really brings out the flavor.

Dip your chips in the sauce and you’ve got a very tasty treat! We devoured ours last night! YUM!
