A different kind of chip to dip

Rush-Hour Remedies

August 12, 1998|By Joanne E. Morvay

* Item: Ore Ida Oven Chips

* What you get: 9 servings

* Cost: About $2

* Preparation time: 4 to 7 minutes broiled, 5 to 10 minutes fried, 12 to 22 minutes baked

* Review: Just when you thought Ore Ida had run out of ways to cook potatoes, here come oven chips. Thicker than the average potato chip, but thinner than a steak fry, these potato rounds are coated with a light and crispy batter. You can bake, broil or fry them. I didn't bother to deep-fry, but I did toss a handful in a frying pan with some fish, and the fries cooked up relatively grease-free. The package suggests dipping the warm chips in everything from ketchup to onion dip. Judging from the reaction to oven chips at our house, I'd say Ore Ida can chalk up another spud success.
