Totally agree with the others super easy and so tasty. I fried mine twice. Best if eaten right away. And lightly season while hot. Do not skip the cold water soak. That's what makes these so crisp. Toh-VFE.

Excellent! I used a mandolin to slice the potatoes extra thin. I hesitated to use the spice mix, but went ahead with it and was very glad that I did.

These were a big crunchy hit! I used my deep fryer and it worked great.
