unexpected transformation…

February 19, 2013

I don’t like Pringles. I think they’re too fatty, have the texture of crispy cardboard, are too salty and are completely over packaged. But we bought some at Christmas time (they were on special offer and the kids thought they would make a nice change from local, organic, potato crisps and would be nice). I found the remains in the cupboard today. They were sweet chilli flavour, which obviously hadn’t enough charm to tempt anyone to finish the tube.


In the interests of cutting down on food waste, I thought I’d use them. I did this once before and was completely surprised at the success – so surprised, in fact, that that I thought I’d imagined it.

Turns out that the only thing to do with Pringles, especially stale ones, is to put them on a baking tray, sprinkle them with cheddar cheese and put them in a hot oven for a few minutes until the cheese melts.

I kid you not, they are transformed. Something inherently nasty becomes a thing of wonder.

You have to be quick even to take their photo.

    I don’t think mom has ever given me a Pringles. I’ve never seen a can. But your picture looks so intriguing. I may have to persuade her to try that. XOXO – Bacon

        Well, I secretly added Pringles to her shopping list. I’m very curious about this new inspired item to try. It is on my bucket list. Perhaps she will bring home some from the market this weekend! I’ll keep you posted.

What do you think?
