So …its National Chip week.
The Chip, a simple food that reminds me of the old rhyme, There was a little girl, who had a little curl…What I’m getting at, is well…Chips when they are good, they are very, very good..And when they are bad they are horrid.
We seem to have stopped eating chips; bad press and a new taste for rice and pasta seem to have taken the humble spud out of favour. How long ago is it since you had Ham, egg and chips??
A fresh laid egg, decent ham and good chips can be a feast for any man, woman or child.
I personally find oven chips pretty below par. We do have an Actifry, which does cook a good chip. But its sheer size dictates that it spends most of its time at my boyfriends’ house (I lack cupboard and workspace at my home J).
So my chip of choice (when I’m making them anyway) involves…wait for it….actual potatoes.
Hot from an oven with a sprinkle of salt, maybe a splash of ketchup or even a blob of mayonnaise, sometimes gravy or even curry…really what’s not to love about chips? Guess what I’m Making for tea?
Peel potatoes and chop into chip shapes.
Par boiled for 15 mins until you can insert a fork into them.
Place on a baking tray drizzle with oil and cook in a hot oven until crispy and delightful.
