Recipe 4: Extra Special Spuds


by Cheryl Shaffer, Kitchen Store Specialist

Portrait Potato Crisps

1 large Idaho baking potato, scrubbed but not peeled
Vegaline spray
flaked sea salt
J&D's Sriracha Rub Seasoning Blend
1 egg white, beaten to use as brushed-on “glue” for the herbs
Assorted Herbs:
red chili pepper seeds
poppy seeds
sage leaves
thinly sliced carrots
thinly sliced purple cabbage
thinly sliced potato peel
thinly sliced jalapeño pepper
thinly sliced lemon, lime or orange peel - be careful - you want color only, not the white pith or it
will be bitter.

Mandoline set at thinnest slice
metal cooling rack set over a cookie sheet
sharp knife
mini cookie cutters

Thinly slice the potato into cameo-like ovals. Brush with egg wash. Arrange the herbs into a
pleasing arrangement. I used mini cookie cutters to easily cut shapes from the cabbage, carrot,
citrus, and potato peel.


When you have your design set, sprinkle with a little Sriracha
seasoning, give a light spray of Vegaline, and sprinkle of flake sea salt. Carefully transfer the
ovals to the metal cooling rack, which has been sprayed with Vegaline, and bake 350 degrees until
potato is cooked and starting to brown, about 15 minutes.


These can be a bit time consuming, but if you cut out your basic shapes ahead, you can put
them together fairly quickly.


I could get 9 ovals on each rack. The crisps are good on their
own, but can also be dipped in a bit of creamy dressing. Each bite is different, depending on
your mix of herbs used in the portrait.
