BBQ Potato Chips

by aimee @ shugarysweets on July 8, 2011

Homemade BBQ potato chips with bacon salt! Crispy and delicious!

I have abandoned all healthy eating. My shorts are a little tight again. Swimsuits are put away for the season. What? Is it too early for that?

These chips are awesome. Even Michael said after he ate them, “you made these???” Ye of little faith. Why yes, I made those. I made a small batch of them too so that I don’t over eat, so back off the BBQ chips buddy. Remember, YOU were the one who wanted to eat healthy! Go have an egg white. The rest of the chips are mine!

BBQ chips are my favorite type of chip. So when I saw a recipe for these on Taste of Home I knew I had to make them. Except, I made them my way. I used my secret ingredient. Wait for it…..

Bacon Salt. Yes. It’s a beautiful thing. You can find it at most grocery stores in the seasoning aisle, near the Lawry’s and Mrs.Dash. Find it. Then make these chips. Unless you’re on a diet. Then I don’t want to be to blame.

BBQ Potato Chips

Ingredients

  • 2 large baking potatoes, sliced very thin
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3 1/2 tsp bacon salt
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • canola oil for frying

Instructions

  1. Mix seasonings in bowl until completely combined. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in skillet. Fry potato slices in batches for several minutes per side, until browned.
  3. Remove from oil with slotted spoon. Drain on paper towels and immediately sprinkle with BBQ seasoning. Store in airtight container.
  4. (insipired by Taste of Home)

I just get the Bacon salt at our local grocery store chain. It’s in the seasoning aisle right near the Lawry’s and Mrs.Dash. It comes in different versions, I just buy original.

Lark- french fries would be great with this!!!

if you can’t get bacon salt at your local store, got http://www.baconsalt.com, they have everything bacon flavored. no stores in my area carry it, so I order it. can’t go wrong, great in salads, lettuce or otherwise, on potatoes of any kind, i use mine for many so things. love it, n o calories, either :-)

If there’s one thing I can’t resist it’s barbecue potato chips. I have tons of discipline when it comes to desserts but if there are barbecue potato chips in the house, I am always aware of their presence and my resistance slowly wears down. This recipe look amazing! I would rather splurge on these than cake or cookies or anything. I’m definitely going to make these!
