Homemade Potato Chips

With Parmesan, Rosemary, Balsamic Syrup & White Truffle Oil

Homemade potato chips are a real treat. This recipe by Chef Susan Gross of the West Town Tavern in Chicago is a gourmet take on the popular potato chip. If you don’t like sweet things or want to cut down on sugar, omit the balsamic syrup. You can buy the white truffle oil at any specialty food store. For best results, use a top quality Parmigiano Reggiano or Grana Padano.
