Introduction of slabs potato crisps

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as the crunch of a good crisp. Imagine achieving that delightful bite at home with your own Slabs Potato Crisps.

Not only are they delicious, but homemade crisps also come with the bonus of being preservative-free, allowing for complete control over the flavor and quality.

Ingredients of slabs potato crisps

  • Potatoes (4 medium-sized, scrubbed clean)
  • Sunflower Oil for deep-frying
  • Olive Oil for flavor
  • Salt to taste
  • Malt Vinegar Flavour for that classic crisps flavor (11%) (includes Lactose and Salt)

Preparation of slabs of potato crisps

  1. Begin by slicing the potatoes thinly. A mandolin slicer works best to achieve uniform thickness, aiming for about 1/16th of an inch. Immediately immerse the potato slices in a large bowl of iced water to prevent browning and to remove excess starch.
  2. Once all the potatoes are sliced, change the water in the bowl to fresh and soak for at least 1 hour, or overnight for the best results. This step is crucial for achieving the desired crispiness.
  3. When ready to proceed, drain the potato slices and pat them dry with paper towels. They must be as dry as possible to avoid any oil splatter during frying.


  1. Set a deep, heavy-bottomed pot on the stove and fill it with sunflower oil, about halfway up the pot. Heat the oil to 350°F (175°C). A candy thermometer can be useful to monitor the temperature.
  2. Working in batches, carefully add a small handful of potato slices to the hot oil. Use a slotted spoon to gently separate the slices to ensure even cooking. Fry the potatoes until they are golden brown, which should take about 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Remove the crisps from the oil and transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. While still hot, drizzle a little olive oil over the top for added flavor.
  4. Once you’ve fried all the slices, let them cool completely. They’ll continue to crisp as they cool.

  1. In a bowl, mix salt with the malt vinegar flavoring. The ratio of salt to flavoring mix is based on your personal taste, so start with a smaller amount and add more if needed.
  2. Sprinkle the seasoning over the cooled potato crisps and toss them gently to coat evenly.

Additional Tips

  • If you prefer a less oily crisp, you can bake these instead of frying. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C), arrange the potato slices in a single layer on a baking sheet, and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden and crisp, flipping them halfway through.
  • For a flavor boost, you can add other seasonings like garlic powder, smoked paprika, or a touch of cayenne pepper to the seasoning mix.


Enjoy your homemade Slabs Potato Crisps as a delicious snack. They’re perfect for parties, game days, or a cozy night in. With a little time and effort, you can have a whole batch of these delightful crisps ready to share with friends and family.

Bite into the satisfaction of a perfectly crunchy snack that you’ve made with your own hands. Happy munching!
