I love Baked POTATO CHIPS! I mean, who doesn’t, but we all know that the packaged, processed versions we buy in the grocery store are not good for you, in fact I don’t believe they have any nutritional value at all! They are also laden with a lot of fat, cholesterol and salt. Not good! I always order the homemade POTATO CHIPS when we go out to dinner since most restaurants that offer them, make them from scratch and they are delicious!
That is why I have crafted this Amazing baked POTATO CHIP recipe that you can make yourself and eat all the time without any guilt! What is better than that? Bonus, they are very easy to make and only contain one main ingredient, POTATOES.
I used both white and sweet potatoes and for the white POTATOES I tried both Yukon gold and russet and they both worked out well. I used my mandolin to slice them nice and thin (it literally took only a few minutes) and then I just dried them on a paper towel, placed them on a baking sheet, sprayed them will olive oil cooking spray and sprinkle of salt and pepper and baked them until golden brown. OMG! They are so good! I think I will make these for Thanksgiving and add a dipping sauce. I want to make all of my recipes for Thanksgiving so everyone can try them but I guess that would be too many so I will have to be selective. This one has to go on the menu since It will be a great light app to start off the festivities. Look out for this recipe on my Vegetarian Loaded Thanksgiving Menu I will be posting in a couple of weeks. I am currently working on the dipping sauce recipe.
Until then, you can work with this POTATO CHIP recipe that your kids and family and friends will flip over. When I made these, my nieces and nephew and my kids ate all of them and I made a lot. That is a good sign, when kids like a recipe that is on the healthier side, it must be good!
These came out so light and crispy. I cannot believe how good the final version was! A must try!
