Does anyone know the proper way to fry the dehydrated potato chips that
you get from the super market bulk bins?  I have tried to soak them in
water with and without salt before frying them, but as soon as I try to
fry them crispy, then end up being very hard.

Thank you for you time ...

these are labeled "potato chips", they're not for *making* "potato
chips".  Instead, these are used for making potato casseroles and
such, like potatoes au gratin.  They're not for frying and
munching on.

This reminds me of the time I tried to rehydrate dried squid and
wondered why it didn't work.
