Baked Potato Chips

I kept my promise – we are continuing with the chip posts! I thought I would try just a plain potato chip for this week. I made sure these were baked, and honestly, they tasted pretty good compared to the chips you buy at the store.

I found out through this recipe that I have yet another kitchen device to buy – a mandolin. Cutting these strips would have been a bit easier if I had one.  Also, make sure you watch these while they are in the oven! They burn easily if you don’t watch closely.

You’ll need:

  • 4 russet (baking) potatoes, peeled and sliced diagonally 1/8 inch thick
  • 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) of butter, melted
  • Coarse salt to taste
Pat the potatoes dry between paper towels and arrange them in one layer in 2 buttered cookie sheets; if you have a non-stick cooking spray, this works fine for greasing the pans. Brush the potatoes with the butter, bake them in a preheated 500°F oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. Sprinkle them with the salt.
Pretty easy! I’ve seen in other recipes that after the cutting stage you should put the potatoes slices in water for 1 hour to remove the starch. I’ll try this next time.  
Another few chips recipes will be coming soon!
