  • Thoroughly scrub and dry the potatoes. Fill two large bowls with cold water. Using a peeler, peel the potatoes in long strips, placing the peels in one bowl of water and the peeled potatoes in the other.
  • Drain the peels and pat dry between two kitchen towels.
  • Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry the potato peels in batches until lightly golden and crisp, about 2-3 minutes per batch. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan.

  • Immediately toss the potato peel chips with salt and any desired seasonings, such as paprika, garlic powder, or grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Serve the potato peel chips warm as a delicious snack or appetizer.
