My pledge for Zero Waste Week this year is to reduce our food waste which means that I have been trying out a few new things including making my own crisps from leftover potato peels.

They are so easy to make that I really don’t know why I haven’t made them before. Here’s what I did…

Homemade Leftover Potato Crisps Recipe

Homemade Potato Crisps

Toss the leftover potato peels in some olive oil (just enough to coat)

Add some salt and pepper

Spread onto a baking tray and cook in the oven for 20-30 minutes. (190 degrees celsius)

When you take the crisps out just make sure that they are all crispy and then they are done.

It’s a great way to use up leftover peels that would normally end up in your food waste bin and they taste really good too. If you have a lot of peelings you can cook them all and then store them in an airtight container to eat another day.
