Broiled Vinegar Potatoes

What is your favorite potato chip?  Mine is most definitely salt and vinegar kettle chips- they are addictive.  The saltiness and the sourness of the vinegar come together in perfect harmony.  Well, it may not be socially acceptable to eat a bag of potato chips for dinner, so instead you can make these broiled vinegar potatoes.  These potatoes are a great way to change up to a steak and potatoes dinner.
I made these one night when I had a cold because I wanted to make sure I could taste my dinner, and I was pleased to find that the vinegar and salt taste burst past my stuffed nose.  (Boiling the vinegar and accidentally taking a few direct steams to the face also helped cleared up my nose passages too- an added health benefits with this dish).  They tasted exactly like my favorite potato chips and were easy to make- a definite repeat to jazz up a weeknight dinner.

1/2 pound potatoes
White wine vinegar
Olive oil
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper


Slice the potatoes into 1/4 inch slices.  Put potato slices in a saucepan and cover with vinegar.  Bring to a boil over medium heat.  Continue to cook for 5-10 minutes, until fork tender.  Remove from heat and let potatoes cool in vinegar for 30 minutes.  Drain.

Preheat the broiler.

Toss potatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Arrange in one layer on a baking sheet and bake for 5-10 minutes, until browned.  Rotate tray if needed.  Watch potatoes carefully to prevent them from burning.  Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
