When getting giddy over the start of 20 weeks of football last week, I spent a few days coming up with this beauty. These potatoes are shaved thin as potato chips, and stacked with plenty of flavor, and an excellent side dish - for your tailgate or homegate.
They are a perfect accompaniment to grilled steak, hamburgers or brisket. Enjoy!
