This is easy potato chip recipe only needs potatoes, oil and salt to create the perfect snack! Or, pair your homemade potato chips with an amazing artisan sandwich from our partner, Better Bakery.

Homemade potato chips are quick and easy to make with just a potato, oil and salt! Thinly sliced potatoes are fried in a little oil for a few minutes. You won't believe how delicious these are!

My kids love to ask where food comes from. Steak is from a cow. Chicken is a … chicken. That one confuses them. The other day they wanted to know where potato chips came from. I told them in passing that we could actually make our own potato chips and they wouldn’t let that go. I knew homemade potato chips were in my future.

Better Bakery Artisan Melts

I love potato chips especially with a sandwich for lunch.  So when these two beauties showed up on my doorstep from Better Bakery, I knew that the time had come to make potato chips.  What could be better on a chilly winter afternoon than a hot sandwich right out of the oven and freshly made potato chips? Not much!

Easy Lunch Idea

Now, I’ve had my fair share of sandwiches from the freezer aisle and they are all pretty bland. So I was really surprised to bite in to the Better Bakery Chicken & Bacon Club and discover a truly delicious sandwich. It was hard not to cook up the second sandwich in the package! Better Bakery sandwiches are hand made in small batches by bakers who truly want a better sandwich experience. Better Bakery has certainly done that! I was planning to let the kids eat the Cheese & Pepperoni Pizza melts, but I may just keep them hidden in the freezer for myself.  Homemade potato chips are the perfect compliment to a Better Bakery artisan melt.

How to cut potato chips

Making potato chips is pretty simple.  You just slice the potatoes and fry them up.  I popped my Better Bakery melt in to the toaster oven to cook and was able to get the chips made by the time the sandwich was ready. I use a mandolin to slice the potatoes because you really want them sliced as thinly as possible.

Once the potato is sliced, fry it up in oil. I used about an inch of coconut oil in a deep pot.  There’s no need to deep fry them. Just flip them over half way through cooking to make sure both sides get crisped.  Remove from the oil and salt.

That’s one potato’s worth of chips.  I like mine a little more cooked so I let them get nicely browned.

Homemade Potato Chip Recipe


  • Russet potatoes
  • Coconut Oil
  • Salt


  1. Put about a cup of coconut oil in a large, deep pot. Heat on high heat until the oil is hot. You may need to adjust the heat as you cook.
  2. Thinly slice the potato. I find a mandolin works well for this. Just make sure to use the hand guard for safety.
  3. Carefully place slices of potato in a single layer in the oil in the pot using a slotted spoon. Cook for about 2-4 minutes, turning the potatoes over halfway.
  4. Remove the potatoes with a slotted spoon to a paper towel covered plate. Immediately season with salt. Allow to cool before eating.

    I always thought you needed a ton of oil to make your own chips, so this is very interesting and exciting to hear!
