The perfect hot chip is pretty hard to find but we think we have come very close with our homemade hot chips!


  1. Cut potatoes into thirds then into smaller chips.

  2. Heat water and salt in large saucepan over medium to high heat and bring to the boil. Once boiling for 2-3 minutes reduce heat to a simmer for another 5 minutes until potatoes are cooked.

  3. Preheat deep fryer to 190 degrees or heat large saucepan with oil (be very careful!) over medium heat (no lid or can catch fire when you remove the lid).

  4. Place french onion soup mix and flour into a bag, add potato wedges and shake until well coated.

  5. Place a layer of chips in basket and fry until golden brown.

  6. Drain on paper towel and repeat until all done.

  7. Serve hot with aioli.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Homemade Hot Chips are suitable for freezing if you only half cook the chips (until just starting to change colour) then remove from oil drain and freeze once cooled in a ziplock bag.
