Dilly Oven Potatoes with Sour cream

A Snack in a Bag inspires a New Family Favorite

Turning a Salty Snack into a Homemade Recipe🥔

A few months ago, my grandson came over with a bag of sour cream and dill chips. I don’t buy a lot (well, really any) chips these days, but they were – sitting on my countertop. I had to try them! They were really salty, but hard to put down. The combination of potatoes, sour cream, and dill is unbeatable. I couldn’t help thinking how great it would be with fresh dill and actual sour cream. I love making oven chips (I started doing that when I accidentally left potato slices in the oven too long for my potato crust quiche). So, this is the recipe I came up with using fresh dill and full-fat sour cream. 

🔪 Consistent Slices

I used a mandoline for consistent, thin slices of the russet potatoes. This is a crucial step, as uniform slicing ensures even cooking and the perfect crunch. Remember, safety first when using a mandoline – it’s a sharp tool!

That goes for the ceramic ones too! I have a chainmail glove that I use. 

🌶️ The Spices

The combination of Aleppo pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and Kosher salt creates a punchy, flavorful base. I toss this mixture with extra-virgin olive oil and the potato slices, ensuring each chip is coated as evenly as possible. 

🍋 Finishing 🌿

After baking them to crisp and golden brown, I finish them with fresh dill, lemon zest, and a sprinkle of Maldon sea salt. The lemon and dill added a refreshing brightness, while the Maldon sea salt brought a unique, poppy texture.

🥄 Creamy Contrast

A dollop of cold, creamy sour cream provides a perfect contrast to the warm and spicy chips. They reheat surprisingly well. 

🍽️ A New Family Favorite

These chips have become a new favorite in our household, offering a perfect balance of flavor, crunch, and creaminess with a familiar flavor combination. I serve them as a side to turkey burgers, a snack for a football game, or a quick appetizer in a pinch. They are a total crowd- pleaser! 

Give them a try! 

Buon Appetito!
