To make the gluten free potato chips – I got this recipe for the potato chips from Gluten Free Goddess


2 medium baking potatoes, scrubbed, sliced very thin
Olive oil

I fried up a batch of potato and baking potato chips.
I always use olive oil in everything that includes it as I hate the thought of sunflower oil and vegetable oil. It tastes good. It’s good for me (monosaturated). And I’m not allergic to it. You can substitute your own favorite cooking oil.

Heat a an inch of pure olive oil in a large deep skillet, or even a wok. When the temperature is very hot (I didn’t use a thermometer but recipes call for 350 degrees F, usually) carefully place just enough chips- all white- to take up space in the oil without crowding them too much; and fry them till golden crisp. Remove with long handled tongs and drain on paper towels.

Work in batches until you have cooked all the chips. Add a little more oil if you need to as you cook batches- but note that I used much less oil than most recipes call for, and my chips turned out lovely and crisp. Drain them on paper towels and you can sprinkle with sea salt if you wish.
It couldn’t be easier (just be careful of the hot oil- and don’t drop any watery food in it- water and moisture makes oil spatter- ouch!).
Store in an air-tight container- that is if they aren’t devoured within ten minutes.
Serves 4.

My husband made me this wonderful meal and it was so delicious and yummy I couldn’t get enough of it, thank you darling.
