Potato Peel Crisps
- Peels from baked, raw, or boiled potatoes
- Unsalted butter
- Salt & pepper
Reserve the peels from baked, raw, or boiled potatoes and cut them into 3 by 1 inch strips.
Arrange the strips in one layer in a buttered baking dish, dot them with unsalted butter, using 1 tablespoon for each cup of peels, and sprinkle them with salt and pepper.
Bake the peels in a preheated very hot oven (450°) for 5 to 25 minutes, according to the type of peel, or until they are very crisp.
(Baked peels cook in 5 to 7 minutes, raw peels cook in 15 to 20 minutes, and boiled peels cook in 20 to 25 minutes.)
Transfer the peels to a basket, sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired, and serve as an hors d'oeuvre.
