Grown AF Potato Chips

Normal potato chips are basic AF so grow up and try these made with serrano ham, gooey cheese, and a poached egg.


  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 slices serrano ham, crisped
  • 1 bag kettle cooked potato chips
  • Scallions, to garnish
  • For white cheddar cheese sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 small clove garlic, microplaned
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/2 cup whole milk, warm
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large pot over medium-low heat, add vinegar. Crack eggs one at a time into a ramekin and slowly add to water. Turn off the heat and cover. Poach eggs for 5 minutes. Carefully remove and place on a plate with a napkin.
  2. For the sauce: Over medium heat, melt the butter and cook the garlic until fragrant. Add the flour and whisk to form a roux. Stir for 1 to 2 minutes until roux is light brown. Add the milk and whisk to incorporate. Add thyme, salt and pepper to taste. Cook sauce for an additional 5 to 7 minutes over medium low heat. Whisk cheese into sauce. Set aside and keep warm until ready to serve.
  3. To serve, add a poached egg on the bottom of each plate. Add potato chips and top with cheese sauce. Finish with the crispy serrano ham. Mix before eating and enjoy!
