I am more of a sweets kind of girl, but sometimes I crave something salty. When that happens I reach for the chips, not any kind of chip though. I am picky:) I love chips and salsa, but I am not a fan of the regular, greasy, store bought chips. I prefer to make my own.
Making your own potato chips is so easy and it doesn’t take long…and guess what you DON’T need to fry them! I am serious here. You can bake them in the oven and get the same, crispy results.
All you have to do is slice the potatoes really thin…we use our mandoline, makes this step easy and fun:) We used russet potatoes and sweet potatoes. Next, you season them…we kept it basic-salt and pepper and seasoned salt on half of them. Then you bake them! It is that easy!!
So if you don’t mash up all of your potatoes this week. Give these chips a chance. They are the perfect snack for game day. I know there is going to be a lot of football on and everyone needs something to munch on during tense moments:) Plus, after indulging all week you need something a little bit healthy:)
Baked Potato/Sweet Potato Chips
2 medium potatoes (we used russet and sweet potato, leave the skins on)
Cooking Spray-we used a canola spray
salt and pepper to taste or seasoned salt…or use whatever seasonings you like! You can really go wild here!
Directions: Slice potatoes to about ⅛″ thickness. We used our mandoline. Spread out in a single layer on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Briefly spray the tops of the potatoes with cooking spray too. Sprinkle with seasonings.
Bake at 425 for 20-25 minutes. Start checking the chips at about 15 minutes. Remove chips that are browning…the sweet potatoes got done faster than the russets. Continue to bake, but keep an eye on them. Let them cool and then enjoy!
