Salt and Vinegar Roasted Potatoes

One of my favorite very guilty pleasures is salt and vinegar potato chips. I rarely have them. However, if they’re available and near me, they aren’t safe and neither is anyone who comes between us. I’ve found a healthier way to enjoy the taste of these tart and salty delights. Here ya go…you’re welcome!

    Salt & Pepper potato chips are some of my favorites, so I will have to try this! I have prepared potatoes similar to your recipe but never used apple cider. What does that do/add to the flavor?

    I also like jalapeno potato chips – of course, these are coated with powdered seasoning. My first thought was to find something like this for the potato recipe. THen I thought – Hmmm… Why not just chop up fresh jalapenos? I am going to try this!

      Apple cider vinegar has some health benefits that are not as prevalent in say, white vinegar. I think if you were to chop up your jalapeños and cook them in the water with the potatoes, it would be far healthier than the powder you find on the chips. Often those ingredients are man-made and not healthy. Hot peppers, on the other hand, are very good for you. They are, ironically, anti-inflammatory. Enjoy!

    Karen, yumm! I have roasted potato pieces with olive oil and a tiny bit of sea salt, but never with apple cider vinegar. I promise I will use the acv in salad dressings and such, leaving my beloved roasted potatoes as such. Oh, sometimes I use thinly sliced onion on top of the potato pieces. Yumm! Thanks for a great recipe!

      Kebba…who doesn’t love a good roasted potato? I make them often with olive oil, salt, pepper and rosemary. My kids aren’t big fans of vinegar so I save this for when they aren’t joining us for dinner.

    ooooh I should not be reading this when it is time to go to bed..
    I am wondering how this would taste with sweet potatoes and if anything have to be changed.

      Sorry if I gave you a reason to misbehave just before bedtime Doug. I don’t know how this would be with sweet potatoes. My suggestion is…try it. I don’t think it will hurt you. What’s the worst that can happen?
