The white patato chips bring a combination of chili powder, cumin, together with paprika on them.  So hmmmm, I idea to myself - if nosotros dip buffalo hot wings inward bluish cheese dressing, mightiness it endure tasty to dip these spicy sweetness white patato chips inward bluish cheese dressing, too??  And that's how today's cooking peril was born.

You don't desire to over-work it together with intermission upward all those nice, large hunks of bluish cheese.  You desire it to endure all lumpy-bumpy.

And that's all at that spot is to making homemade bluish cheese dressing.

With stage 1 of the peril done, it was fourth dimension to deed on to the sweetness white patato chips.  Unfortunately, stage ii didn't larn then well.  The starting fourth dimension challenge was to larn the sweetness potatos sliced thinly - nigh 1/8" thick.  My nutrient processor isn't able to spell that thinly, together with I don't ain a mandoline (and would endure afraid I'd cutting my fingers off if I did!  I'm a clutz.), then I tried the slicing side of my 6-sided box grater.  No luck.  This left me amongst alone the pick of slicing past times hand.  Do you lot know how difficult it is to evenly spell past times hand?  Chock that upward to "Fussiness" #1.

Next, toss the white patato slices inward a canola oil-and-spice mix to coat, together with lay inward a unmarried layer on baking sheets.  Oil coated white patato slices stick together together with are non that tardily to separate.  "Fussiness" #2.

Then bake, watching carefully to brand certain they don't burn.  Remember that problem I had slicing them evenly?  Well ... here's what happens when roughly of the slices are thinner than others ... they terminate upward similar these guys -- "Fussiness" #3.


Oh, together with did I get upward that half-way through cooking you lot plough the white patato slices over?  I started this procedure using tongs, but it was difficult to catch the slices because they were then thin.  So I ended upward only using my fingers ... on white patato slices that were baking inward a 400 marking oven.  Yes, it did hurt.  Thank you lot for asking.  "Fussiness" #4.

The concluding result?  Sweet white patato chips that were rattling unevenly cooked - sometimes burnt, sometimes only right, together with - generally - soggy together with flimsy.  While the flavour was good, I was severely disappointed amongst the terminate product.


So ... the rattling fabulous, absolutely yummy, amazingly wonderful homemade bluish cheese dressing ended upward beingness enjoyed similar this amongst skillful one-time celery sticks.  Yum.
