Chip and Dip Sunflowers #SundaySupper

Sunflower Chip and Dip Plate

“Everybody out of the pool!”

No need to panic. Something is brewing on the horizon. It’s not a thunderstorm. It’s fresh brewed ice tea and snacks!

Homemade potato chips and Bacon Horseradish Dip to be exact.

This week Sunday Supper is throwing a Pool Party and we would love to have you join us!
Don’t worry if you don’t have a tan or new swimsuit. This is a virtual party so come as you are. Just bring your appetite!

I’ll let you in on a little secret. I can’t swim. I took lessons in school but I’m still terrified of water where I can’t stand on the bottom.
I love to wade in streams along the shoreline. I can dunk myself in the pool enough to get wet. So you’ll find me on the sideline or sitting with the kids at the kiddie pool.
Don’t feel sorry for me. I’m always closest to the food and drink. I’ll toss you a towel when you need one!
In the meantime, join me in a snack.

Sunflower Chip and Dip set

I used Russet and Yukon Gold potatoes to make my chips. Cut the chips between 1/16 and 1/8-inch thickness depending on your taste. Fry at 350 until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and season with seasoned salt or kosher salt.
Arrange on a tray by over-lapping potato “petals” to form a sunflower. Place a small bowl of dip in the center to finish off your flower.
I make several kinds of dip and switch out the bowls as needed.

One of our favorite chip and dip combos is Bacon Horseradish. Bits of smoked sun-dried tomatoes round out the flavor. An easy dip to make and a definite crowd pleaser!
I’m also including my French Onion Dip recipe for those die-hard onion dip fans. I add a bit of powdered beef bouillon to the dip to kick it up a notch!
