Salt and Vinegar Potato Bites

Salt and Vinegar Potato Bites

Serves 8

Salt and vinegar crisps (known Stateside as potato chips) and chips (what we call French fries) are pub nosh standards. Here, the concept gets a healthful makeover with roasted potato cubes and a syrupy malt vinegar sauce.
  • 6 medium red or yellow potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes (3 cups)
  • 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 1 cup malt vinegar
  • 3 Tbs. sugar

1. Soak potatoes in large bowl of cold water 30 minutes. Drain, and pat dry.

2. Preheat oven to 425°F. Toss potatoes with oil on baking sheet, and spread in single layer. Roast 45 minutes, or until golden and crisp, turning 2 or 3 times. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

3. Meanwhile, bring vinegar and sugar to a simmer in saucepan over medium heat. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until liquid is reduced by half, stirring occasionally. Serve malt sauce on side for dipping, or drizzle over potatoes.

I had pretty high hopes for this recipe - I loved getting super vinegary boardwalk fries in Ocean City as a kid. These were kind of a disappointment though :( Perhaps my potatoes weren't roasted long enough but everything turned out kind of soggy.

Delicious! The whole family loved these.

Wonder if you could just put the vinegar in a bag to coat the potatoes and bake that way - omitting the oil to lessen the cholesterol and fat content...

Was Delicious...make sure you use a good malt vinegar

You can modify this by adding the oil to a plastic bag, adding your favorite seasonings, including fresh or dried Rosemary...shake, then bake. Its really good

I didn't have malt vinegar so used red wine vinegar instead and it came out wonderful.Will definitely make again.
