I'm looking for simple recipes where I can use up potato chip crumbs. There always seems to be a ton of them in the bottom of the bag and it's ashame to let them go to waste. I have put them on top of tuna casserole before.
You can use them to coat chicken and other meats. Just dip the meat in a egg wash (1 tbsp water/egg) and dip in the potato chips. Fry it up!
Add to any biscuit recipe.
Put them on the top of scalloped potatoes or anyplace that you would use breadcrumbs.
Recently I was fixing salmon patties and was going to use cracker crumbs when I thought of the potato chips I had in the freezer. It tasted great, just leave out the salt. You could use them in meat loaf or about anything of that kind. Good Luck!
I put mine on baked potatos, soup, and salads. I also use sweetened cereal and cookie crumbs on ice cream, hot cereal, and yogurt.
Another good thing to keep is cracker crumbs, too. My favorite is Olive Oil and Rosemary Trisquits.
I see someone has already posted a recipe for potato chip cookies. I have made these for years and they are VERY tasty. The kids love them!
I keep seeing the recipe for these but have never made them:
potato chip cookies--
potato chip clusters candy--
On fish fillets---
Savings assistant had it right. Use to coat chicken and fry or oven-fry. It's delicious.
I dump mine in my crumb jar, along with bread crumbs, cereal crumbs and such for my own version of shake and bake.
Save them up and use then to coat fried chicken or fish or Use then to sprinkle on salad.
Even the BBQ chips and other flavours work great!
I use the crumbs make baked chicken breast. First after washing and drying chicken, I rub a small amount of salad dressing over chicken and roll in potato chip crumbs and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the juices run clear. Makes a nice crunchie crust. Connie fromely of Dover, De
I like the idea of using them in soup - that sounds good. My friends mom used to bake him a mac-n-cheese with chip crumbs on top - I have no recipe but it was good when he baked it for me.
This isn't really a real recipe but one of my aunts used potato chips mixed in coffee ice cream. Unless the crumbs are way too small, believe it or not, it is delicious. Sweet and salty at the same time.
