View Full Version : Salvaging BBQ Potato Chips
09-26-2007, 06:59 PM
I made a huge batch of my now favorite Potato Chiips. On half the chips, I sprinkled alot (too much) BBQ seasoning, and now they are WAY too strong tasting.
Instead of throwing them away, maybe there is a way to use them somehow? Any ideas, please?

Hmmmm. My first thought was to make a sauce a mild tasting sauce, like cashews and a little lemon juice and toss the chips, and sauce on a bed of lettuce, tomatoes, avos, sprouts. And have a bbq salad of sorts.

I don't know if this would work or not, since I haven't had much luck with chips, but... Could you soak them in some cold water to remove some of the seasonings, then re-dehydrate?

I agree with juliebove, soak the potato chips in water until some or most of the seasoning comes off. Then rinse and re-dehydrate. I would think that would work. Good luck!

yum, I love it spicy, send them to me!
You could make a raw "sour cream" and use it as a dip to dilute out the flavor.

maybe break them up and use like 'croutons' to spice up a salad or in a wrap?

I would crush them up and put them on your salads! That's what I do with mine and I love how they flavor my salads! They remind me of something like bacon bits!

these are all such great ideas, thank you!:D
I don't like to waste food.
Green Life, will you please share with us what you did? Also hubby loves BBQ chips, did you make your own seasoning or use store bought? And how much did you use that made it way too much. I'd like to try it for hubby. :)

Hi Doe, SURE I'll tell you what I did :)
After I painstakingly placed the potato chips on the dehydrator, I sprinkled each chip HEAVILY covering them, (wayyyy to heavily, btw) with a HFS's brand salt free BB@ seasoning from the bulk food section. After they were sprinnkled with the BB@ seasoning, I then salted them with sea salt and dehydrated them. BTW, if you decide to try this let me know how they turned out.
THe baby gold potatoes work the best, much less starchy I found.
