(Above: These chips would go great with watching a football game or just watching the snow fall.)
This was an appetizer eureka!
It isn’t often that I strike gold while dining out but I did on a recent visit to Providence, Rhode Island. By striking gold, I mean tasting something so incredibly delicious and yet so simple to cook it makes you think “Why didn’t I think of that?” This happened on a visit to Union Station Brewery in downtown Providence. The dish? Pub Kettle Chips.
For a mere $7.99 you get a large platter of homemade kettle potato chips with melted cheddar cheese, bacon and sour cream. Mmmm! Goes well with beer (but then again, what doesn’t?)
I recreated them at home by doing the following:
Pub Kettle Chips (From Union Station Brewery in Providence, RI)
- Potato Chips (Use kettle chips, such as Utz Mystic Gourmet Dark Russet Potato Chips.)
- Extra-sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- Bacon, cooked and chopped into pieces
- Scallions, chopped
- Sour Cream
- Step 1 Spread a layer of potato chips on a cookie sheet.
- Step 2 Sprinkle with extra-sharp cheddar cheese and bake in 350 degree oven until cheese melts and chips are hot.
- Step 3 Cook bacon and crumble it or cut it into small pieces and then sprinkle on top of chips.
- Step 4 Sprinkle with chopped scallions. And put a couple of large dollops of sour cream on top.
