Could be anything you want! If you could serve souffle potatoes with your sandwiches I'll give you a triple platinum medal. ;)

What is the rest of your food like? Any particular cuisine? You could always gear your "sprinkle" to the ethnicity (if any) of your kitchen.

OTOH, you could powder just about any blend of dried herbs/spices, mix with salt, and put in shakers to sprinkle on at plating. That would set your place apart nicely. Are there blends you already use? I admit to a distinct partiality to Old Bay, myself, but that's not all that unusual. I make my own Middle Eastern (ras al hanout) and Indian (garam masala) blends -- would something like that work for you? The only caveats I can offer are: keep away from garlic and onion powders (too phony tasting), and add your own salt.

I've had fresh chips with a sprinkle of blue cheese and then a quick trip through the salamander. Very tasty.

Chips need to be seasoned the second they are pulled and drained from the fryer for the seasoning to stay with it.Potato chips in america are those thin sliced salted things we like to eat watching sporting events.Also come in bags marked Lays .Now if you are talking french fries(which the english call chips) then you have slightly more leeway.
What kind of chip are you refering to?Doug................

All those chip ideas sound great, Suzanne!!! But I have to admit, I am partial to homemade BBQ chips. I make my own BBQ seasoning using Chipotle Powder, cinnamon, salt, sugar, black pepper, cumin, coriander, chili powder, granulated garlic, granulated onion, and dried oregano. Once I mix it I then put it in a spice grinder to pulverize it to a fine powder that sticks really well to my potato chips.

Hello Pete,
Do you just throw the spices together or do you have a recipe? It sounds good, but I'm not sure about the flavor mix with the cinnamon in it.

I don't have an exact recipe. I just kind of throw the spices in to taste. Things like the cinnamon and oregano need to be used very sparingly. Start with just a little, you can always add more. Neither of these should you really taste in the mix, it just helps to round out the flavor and give an "added something" that you really can't make out.

Thanks for all the ideas folks! They sound great! The menu is going to be a classic deli for lunch(big sandwiches, very fresh) and the chips will be served with the sandwiches. Dinner is American casual...steaks, lobster cakes, seafood and a few pastas.

How about gaufrettes (waffle chips) with your choice of seasoning? All you need is a mandolin. I like to use finely powdered sea salt or popcorn salt (which is just powdered regular salt) on the chips right out of the fryer.
Mild jalepeno powder mixed with Lawry's and granulated garlic is a nice mix too. I make chili fries or chips by using the previous ingredients and adding chili powder.
