For a new spin on the usual, tired, old potato check out this easy recipe! It’s an awesome and healthy way to whip up a batch of homemade spiral cut potatoes on a stick. The simple recipe is all-natural and all you really need are a few potatoes and some skewers. Plus, it’s healthy because they’re oven-baked rather than deep fried. Everyone’s favorite, YouTube’s go-to-guy DaveHax, shows how to make them in this quick and easy to follow video. Seriously, these crispy potato spirals are unbelievably delicious and make the perfect side to any dish. Keep reading for instructions on how to make them and watch the video for more! First and foremost, scrub and clean up a few potatoes and then dry them off with a paper towel. Take a wooden skewer and stick it through the potato the long way, so that it goes in one end, up thru the center of the potato and out the other end. Place it securely on a chopping board and with a sharp knife carefully slice into it at a slight angle. Cut only so deep that you end up hitting the stick. Now slowly start to rotate the potato while simultaneously cutting it to make a spiral-shaped cut the whole way down the spud.
When you’re done cutting, carefully fan out the pieces of potato along the stick so that they’re slightly separated. Place them on an oven sheet and season with salt, pepper, olive oil, or whatever other flavors you’d like. (I made some lemon-pepper and rosemary seasoned ones that came out tasting amazing!). Now they’re ready for the oven.
The cook times will vary depending on the size of the potatoes you use and the thickness of the slices. The ones DaveHax made in the video were with thin cuts on smaller potatoes and they only took about 25 minutes at 320 degrees to fully cook. When the potato chips are fully cooked and done they should have golden brown edges and are ready to be served. These look and taste delicious, and are a much healthier alternative to deep fried or store bought potato ships. Bon Appétit!
