Baked White Truffle Potato Chips

method adapted from Barefoot Contessa Parties by Ina Garten


Serves 2

3 large baking potatoes
4 T. olive oil
4 T. white truffle oil
3-4 Pinches Sea Salt

Panini with Prosciutto, Mozzarella, Tomato and Pesto
Serves 2

4 Slices good bread
2 T. heaping teaspoons perfect pesto
4-5 slices fresh mozzarella
4 slices fresh tomato
2 slices prosciutto


1. FOR THE CHIPS: Preheat oven to 325ºF. Pour 2 T. of olive oil on a 18×13 jelly roll pan and spread it all around so the pan is fully coated. Place coated pan in the oven and heat for 10 minutes.
2. Scrub potatoes and slice to 1/16″ thick on a mandoline. *If you don’t have a mandoline, slice the potato as thinly as possible with a sharp knife.*
3. Line up potato slices on the baking sheet and drizzle with 1 T. white truffle oil. Then sprinkle with 1-2 pinches of Sea Salt. Place in the hot oven and bake for 10 minutes. Then, rotate the pan and bake for 5-6 more minutes. At that point, look at the chips, as they get darker flip them with a pair of tongs and bake for 1-2 minutes more. The chips will darken a bit as they bake, just don’t let them burn.
4. Remove pan from oven and transfer chips to a layer of paper towels. Allow them to cool and the oil to be absorbed by the towels. They will crisp up slightly as they cool.

1. FOR THE PANINI: Heat a skillet or panini press and coat lightly with butter or olive oil.
2. To make a sandwich: Swipe one side of bread with pesto, then layer with tomato, prosciutto and mozzarella. Close with second piece of bread. Toast and serve.

Naptime Notes

Naptime Recipe Serving ideas

The flavor possibilities for this meal are nearly endless. As long as you have some bread on hand you can make almost anything from your fridge into a great toasted sandwich. I’ve also flavored the chips before with different herbs including rosemary and thyme, as well as garlic oil and red pepper.

Naptime Stopwatch

Slice and baking the chips takes about 30 minutes, assembling and making the paninis takes about 10 minutes at the most.

Naptime Reviews

My husband and I are always game for a sandwich and chips for dinner now and then. For my daughter we omitted the prosciutto and gave her a pesto and mozzarella grilled cheese.
