Baked Potato Chips
I love love love baked potato chips. I really prefer them to the traditional fried variety. My absolute favorite are baked Ruffles. I can't buy a full sized bag of those things because I seriously eat them until they're gone. Bad bad bad. I wanted to make some chips to go with sandwiches I made and figured I could just wing it. John had bought me a mandolin for Hanukkah and I had yet to use it. I was seriously frightened of that thing at first but once I got the hang of it I liked using it. These chips came out to be nice and tasty. They taste more like a crisp potato rather than a chip but they certainly worked. Next time I would bake them for 20 minutes because the burnt spots really tasted like chips where as the non-burnt spots tasted like potatoes. Overall, big success and a very tasty side dish!
