I saw this on Pinterest,what a great idea! From the Pinterest article: Here are three reasons why you should try this out. 1.Because they are delicious. Plain and simple. Throw some potato peels in the oven, and they crisp up into delicious bites. 2.No waste! It's delightful to take a food scrap that would have been thrown out or composted and find, instead, that it's not only worth saving, but really delicious. They are the perfect pre-dinner snack: If you're just now peeling potatoes, it means that dinner still has a little while to go before it's on the table.

How To Make roasted potato peels

  • 1
    Heat the oven to 400°F: Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat, if desired. Toss the peels with oil and seasonings: I used a light drizzle of olive oil, and some pepper and smoked salt. Toss so that the peels are thoroughly coated. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring once: Stir halfway through roasting, and remove them once they're done to your liking. Sprinkle with cheese and scallions! If you like you can sprinkle these little bites with cheese and green onions,which is optional. Eat immediately with ketchup, hot sauce, or some other delicious dip.
