I’ve got another killer recipe from my mom that I want to share with you all — homemade potato chips! It took me a few tries to master it, but I think I’ve finally nailed it down. This recipe is perfect for an afternoon snack or to pair with lunch or dinner. As I have explained before in my post, Hot Potatoes, these tubers can be a healthy staple in the diet when prepared correctly!
Homemade Potato Chips
- 4 medium-sized white potatoes
- olive or avocado oil spray
Wash and dry the potatoes while the oven is heating up to 375 degrees. Cover two pans with foil and spray with oil, then set aside. Thinly slice the potatoes, then place on a paper towel. Dab the slices until they appear dry. Lay the slices on the pans and spray the tops with olive oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top, and pop them in the oven once it has come to temperature. After about 12 minutes, flip the slices over and return to the oven for another 10 minutes. Remove any chips that look golden brown, then return the rest back into the oven to broil for 3 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Be sure to watch them as they broil, in order to make sure that they don’t start to burn! Remove from oven and place them on a plate to cool. Enjoy 🙂 This recipe serves 4 people.
Slicing the potatoes takes some patience and practice, but the skill can be mastered in no time. If you slice a few too thick, they will just turn out to be thin french fries, which I find just as tasty!
