potato peel chips

Food waste is certainly a topic that’s near and dear to our hearts, and we couldn’t be more excited about this recipe that makes good use of basic potato peels. Like a cross between a potato chip and French fry, serve these as a pre-dinner nibble that saves space in the compost bin.

  • Peels from 6 large Ontario russet potatoes (ensure the potatoes are scrubbed clean)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch paprika
  • Pinch dried oregano
  • Sprinkle of sea salt


  1. Place the potato skins in a bowl of cold water to avoid discolouration. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with a layer of paper towels. Drain the peels and tip onto the paper towel-lined baking sheet.
  3. Dry the peels thoroughly, then discard the paper towels.
  4. Pour over the butter and oil and sprinkle with kosher salt, pepper, paprika and oregano. Toss to combine.
  5. Roast, stirring once, until crisp and golden, about 20 minutes.
  6. Tip the peels into a serving dish, sprinkle with sea salt.
