Fried Potato Skins



Homemade fried potato skins are my latest snacking discovery. I knew they tasted great but didn’t feel like saving them anyway. Thanks to their crunchy texture, they make the perfect snack on their own, but you can also use them as that necessary salty and crispy garnish for your mashed potatoes, salads, soups, and other dishes. Great alternative to croutons or bacon bits.


  • peels from 3 large potatoes;
  • vegetable oil;
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed;
  • Italian herbs;
  • salt;
  • pepper


  1. Wash the potatoes and remove the gross-looking, damaged parts.
  2. Peel the potatoes into long strips.
  3. Add about 2-3 cm of oil to a pot or pan. Add the crushed garlic to the oil.
  4. Make sure the oil is hot, and only then add the potato peels. Fry on medium heat, occasionally stirring, for 5-10 minutes until golden brown.
  5. Drain on the kitchen towel and add the seasoning.
  6. Serve the skins hot or put them in a jar and keep them in your pantry for soups as a garnish.
