IT Guy and I went to a wedding in Kentucky a few weeks ago for the son of some good friends. While we were out to eat with our friends at a particular restaurant, my friend told me I HAD to try their chips. She said they were SO good. I agreed but thought...meh, just chips. Until I tasted one. Oh my! These were little bites of cheesy heaven. So simple and delicious. I knew I wanted to make them when I got home and I didn't waste any time. I served them to IT Guy after dinner and when he ate one and proclaimed how good it was, he then said he would have been delighted to have them AS his dinner. If only I'd known!!

4 - 5 small Yukon Gold potatoes

Place sliced potatoes in a large bowl filled with water. Allow potato slices to soak for about an hour to remove excess starch.
Drain potatoes and dry between layers of paper towels.

Working in batches, fry potatoes until lightly browned and crispy.

Place cooked potato chips onto an oven proof platter.
Sprinkle with grated cheese and broil until cheese is melted and very light brown.
Sprinkle with green onions. Serve!
Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
