My Guilty Pleasure Side: Homemade Potato Chips

The last few weeks I have provided you with delicious, fresh, healthy side recipes... however sometimes a girl just wants something that has a little crunch to it, and I don't mean the crunch of a carrot. I'm talking about the crisp bite of homemade potato chips. I have a huge weakness for them, so salty, so potatoey, and so satisfyingly tasty that I lick my fingers every time. Unfortunately I've made homemade potato chips countless times with a variety of recipes and have yet to perfect the art that is potato chip making. Always up for a compelling challenge, I'm going to give this recipe a try. Potato chips are a great side with sandwiches, soups, burgers, and hot dogs. They make a great appetizer when paired with a selection of dipping sauces and are excellent picnic food. For the recipe,

Homemade Potato Chips
From Simply Recipes

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

  1. Pat the potatoes dry between paper towels and arrange them in one layer in 2 buttered cookie sheets pans.
  2. 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.
  3. Sprinkle them with the salt.

Serves 4.
