“Oh, these are evil. Potato chips are unhealthy enough, but slathering them with butter? Perfection! I located this in The Best American Recipes 2003/2004 edition. Be sure to use thick cut potato chips - - ordinary ones won't hold up as well. Prep and cook times are approximate, and don't include time to soften the butter.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Farenheit.
  2. Melt one tablespoon of the butter in a small skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until it's softened but not browned- about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat, and cool.
  5. Whip the remaining four tablespoons butter until fluffy, fold in cooked garlic.
  6. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  7. (Be careful with the salt, as the chips might have a lot of their own.) Gently toss the garlic butter with the chips in a large bowl.
  8. Arrange chips in a single layer on a baking sheet (I line mine with baking parchment).
  9. Bake until fragrant and golden, about 4 to 7 minutes.
  10. (Watch them carefully- they'll burn quickly.) Serve hot.
