Hello lovelies! Well as promised, today I’m going to show you a super easy recipe! This is just one of the many uses of Pixie Parmesan, but it’s definitely a good one! 😀
Now, people who know me might be a little surprised that the first recipe I post, is Cheese-coated Chips! And if you’re a healthy eater, don’t panic. These chips aren’t oily, or unhealthy – But they certainly don’t taste like health-food!
When you consider how much fat would be in the butter and toppings you put on a jacket potato, these might even work out healthier!
Begin by choosing some nice, big spuds. I used 4 baking potatoes (I’m not sure what type they were, as I threw away the bag before I thought to look! Any potato that isn’t too floury should work well though!) – 4 spuds were just about enough for me and my partner, but he Does eat more than most!
Then slice and dice them into wedges! (Or straight-chips.. I won’t judge you!)
Try to make sure they’re all roughly the same size so that they cook evenly 🙂 But don’t panic too much about it! (I once saw someone try to cut a PERFECT, even-sided chip… They got ONE chip out of an entire potato! Let’s not go crazy people)
Once your spuds are all chopped to your liking, pop them into a bowl and add 1 teaspoon of olive oil (you could possibly get away with using none at all, but your potatoes won’t be quite as crispy 🙂 )
And mix everything around to coat the wedges evenly (no photos of this, as oily-hands and cameras don’t play nice!)
Then add in 2 tablespoons of Pixie Parmesan cheese 😀 (Feel free to add in more if you want it extra-cheesie! Now would also be a good time to add any other flavours you may want! Fresh herbs, garlic, whatever takes your fancy!) And give it a good mix!
Spread the chips out carefully on a greaseproof-paper lined baking tray, and bake at roughly gas mark 7 (some ovens are hotter than others, so take care here!) for around 40 minutes, or until the chips are crispy and golden (Don’t forget to give them a turn half-way through)
Whilst they are cooking, I simply have to show you the lovely surprise I had last week..
I came down with tonsillitus over last weekend, and so I exiled myself from the kitchen so as not to pass it on! I couldn’t even speak, and drinking even water hurt. I got a phone call in the week from my partners mother, who was in the area and wanted to quickly pop in to “drop something off”. I thought it was something for our little one, so I said sure….
Imagine my surprise when she appears with a bunch of flowers, to make me feel better! ♥ It was such a sweet thought, and really cheered me up 🙂
They have since been doing a wonderful job cheering up my kitchen! I love to split up a bunch of flowers into different sized vases, and tie some matching-coloured ribbon around to bright the place up! A personal favourite is to use those little single-serving wine bottles you can get! They’re often unusual shapes, and not only do they make a nice vase – I get a nice drink out of it too 😉
Anyway! Enough of my home-style tips.. On to the chips!
40 minutes later, your kitchen should smell wonderful, and you’ll have a yummy tray of crunchy, cheesy, slightly nutty chips!
They go great with some Pixie-made Mayo… Just saying 😛
I served mine with some mixed sautéed veggies, a green, herby salad with blueberries, and some home-made spicy chilli sauce!
What will you serve yours with? 😉
