Whether they're running up and down Albertson's stadium steps or tossing the bags to each other, Idaho® potatoes keep the team fueled all season long!

Ask Dr. Potato

Q: I am looking for something unique to bring to our football tailgating event that might reflect that I am from Idaho. Any suggestions?
A: We love our potatoes and what better way to get other people hooked on ‘em during football season than with fresh made potato chips. For starters, a Mandoline is really the best way to cut thin slices, however a vegetable or meat slicer will work too. I recommend using Idaho® Russet Burbank potatoes and slice them lengthwise. Who doesn’t love a bigger chip? This particular recipe is from a fun NYC BBQ restaurant called Blue Smoke. The chips can be prepared ahead of time making them perfect for tailgating. You’ll find that your friends will inhale these. Yes, they are that good! We recommend adding a dip to slow down their consumption to a moderate pace... Enjoy the game!
