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!

  1. I love making these. I actually just made them on Sunday and used seasoned salt. Delicious!

  2. these look so good! I actually tried this before but burned mine :(

    After looking at these though I can't wait to try again.

  3. I love potato chips! I actually ate the whole pan by myself. I don't have a mandolin but carefully sliced them on a regular grater. Sprinkled with sea salt, delicious. This recipe is a keeper for sure. Thanks for the WW points.
