Potato chips don’t usually enter into my party-planning. I associate them with late-night snacking and weekend afternoons spent watching football — so, not exactly the most elegant thing for a pre-dinner hors d’oeuvre. But potato chips topped with cream cheese and a bit of smoked salmon? Well that’s different — not to mention just a tiny bit genius.

This smart idea comes from Brooke McLay at Babble’s The Family Kitchen. She suggests using potato chips as the base of quick, easy one-bit appetizers. You can see her whole recipe here:
