    Old Bay Chips with Lemon Mayo

    Source of Recipe

    Bon Appétit

    Recipe Introduction

    "Take the classic party snack of chips and dip one step further by dressing up both store-bought potato chips and mayonnaise. Warming potato chips (kettle-cooked chips, which are sturdy and crunchy, work best) in the oven primes them to take on extra flavors, like Old Bay seasoning and lemon zest. Adding a bit of sugar to the Old Bay balances the saltiness and savoriness of the mixture—and makes the chips tough to stop eating. On the side, mayo spiked with lemon juice and grated garlic makes for a punchy dipping sauce."

    List of Ingredients

    ◦ 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
    ◦ 3 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning, divided
    ◦ 1 8.5-ounce bag kettle-cooked potato chips
    ◦ 1 lemon
    ◦ 1 clove garlic, finely grated
    ◦ ½ cup mayonnaise
    ◦ 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley


    Preheat oven to 425° F. Whisk powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning in a small bowl. Spread potato chips out on a rimmed baking sheet; sprinkle evenly with remaining 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning. Bake until slightly darkened in color, about 4 minutes. Immediately sprinkle powdered sugar mixture over, then finely grate zest from lemon on top. Toss to coat and transfer to a large bowl.

    Cut lemon in half and squeeze juice of one half into a small bowl; reserve remaining lemon half for another use. Add garlic and mayonnaise; mix well.

    Scatter parsley over chips and serve with lemony mayo for dipping.

    Makes 6 to 8 servings
