Spiced Potato Chips

I often joke around with my wife that when I open up my pantry to find something, it looks like aisle 9 at the grocery store. You know, that aisle that is loaded with any kind of chip, pretzel, pringles, and what not, yeah, that aisle 9. You see it’s like that because I have three, very hungry, and fast growing kids, all of which make their school lunches, and of course need an after school snack. As much as it drives me bonkers when I open that pantry door, primarily because it is just wrong for any of them to actually finish a whole bag of chips (yes, as soon as it gets down to the 1/4 inch layer they fold them back up and well, leave them in there. God forbid they actually throw them away! But if I am going in for some chips, I normally opt for the Lay’s Classic chips, and with that said, I typically think of other chip flavors when eating them, for example, Old Bay chips.

How to make Old Bay Potato Chips

As is the pantry closet loaded with chips, so is my spice cabinet, and hence why this is such an awesome way to flavor up a plain potato chip. Now don’t get me wrong, I think a plain Lay’s chip is nicely salted, but sometimes you want something different, like right now different, and that’s what I wanted at the time, so I went with using Old Bay seasoning. I typically use Old Bay when it comes to a seafood boil, but I really love the spice so much that I thought it would be an interesting pairing with the chips, and was I ever right.

Let’s get started.

  • Lay’s potato chips, as many as you would like
  • 1 tbsp Old Bay Seasoning (or use your favorite)

That’s it, yep, that’s it.

Preheat your oven to 275 degrees.

Add the chips to a baking sheet, and place into the preheated oven for about 5 minutes, only to let some of those oils release from the chip.

Remove them from the oven, and sprinkle on the seasoning, lightly coating all of the chips.

Dig in. These chips were awesome. You still got that great Lay’s chip, but loaded with all of those great spices from the Old Bay seasoning. Let’s just say they didn’t last long.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.

One thought on “Spiced Potato Chips

  1. I know that not everyone is lucky enough to live in an area close to crabbing, but here in PA, we can get something called “crab chips”, essentially a premade (hence easier, though of less quality than) version of what you have here. Thank you for making and posting this, because I can send this recipe when my friends ask me to mail them (at $12 a box for postage? I don’t think so) a bag of chips so they can understand what I’m talking about.
