Baked Potato Chip Recipe

Baked Potato Chips Are Easy and Delicious

When I was planning a recent dinner party, I thought it would be fun to serve homemade potato chips alongside salmon burgers. However, I didn't really feel like standing over a hot pot of frying oil. Then I came across this recipe for baked potato chips and decided to try it. The resulting chips are crispy, addictive, and practically as scrumptious as their fried counterpart! If you have a mandoline, this side comes together quickly and easily. Otherwise, slice the potatoes as thinly as possible and be sure not to overlap when baking. I learned the hard way and ended up with some chips more cooked than others. Still, this recipe is a keeper that I'm adding to my Summer rotation. To get it now,

Baked Potato Chip Recipe 2010-05-28 11:47:53

Ingredients

  1. Vegetable-oil cooking spray
  2. 2 pounds russet potatoes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  3. 3 tablespoons olive oil
  4. Coarse salt
  5. Pinch of cayenne pepper
  6. Freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat 2 rimmed baking sheets with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Put potatoes, oil, 1 tablespoon salt, and the cayenne in a large bowl; season with pepper. Toss to combine.
  3. Arrange potato slices on prepared baking sheets, spacing them 1/4 inch apart. Bake, rotating sheets halfway through, until potatoes are crisp and golden brown, about 30 minutes. Spread out potatoes on parchment paper; let dry 5 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle with salt, if desired.

Serves 4.

I can't even tell you how delicious these were. They cayenne pepper is such a great touch (I used 2 pinches!). This is also very easy to make. I think these would go wonderfully with your awesome french onion dip recipe.

I make these often! :) Try using sea salt, instead! YUM.

I tried making these last night - by hand slicing the potatoes. I didn't like the way they turned out. Some were burnt, others were chewy. I'd only try making this again if I had a mandoline.

The family loves homemade chips fried in oil, so I can't wait to try baking them! Thanks for sharing.

I should make these. I have a mandoline and I usually use it for making sliced potatoes for scalloped potatoes. These sound really yummy, though.
