Baked Potato Chips

posted on: Wednesday, January 14, 2009

Thanks everyone who voted last week. Baked Potato Chips was a definite winner. I'm glad because it is so easy to make and tastes so much better than store bought potato chips. This Recipe below is for 2 people so I suggest doubling it if you have a crowd.

  • 5 medium sized potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to season

(Preheat oven to 350)

  1. Wash out the potatoes very, very well.
  2. cut out the potatoes 4 mm thick. I started using a slicer and then did it all in my food processor.
  3. Have 2 cookie sheets ready. Place 1 tablespoon olive oil on each cookie sheet and put it in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove the hot cookie sheets and place the potato slices on the cookie sheet. Be careful so that the slices do not overlap.
  4. Sprinkle the remaining olive oil on top of the potato slices and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes and flip all the potato slices to the other side.
  6. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes until it is crisp.
  7. Remove from cookie sheet and place on top of a plate with paper towel so that it drains some of the oil.
  8. Serve warm or wait until it is completely cool to store in an air tight container.

please vote again for next week's recipe.


  1. Sounds good to me and much healthier too.

  2. Vou ter que fazer para o Chrisinho com certeza!
    Ah, eu terminei de ler Midnight Sun. ADOREI! Parece que ela vai terminar de escrevê-lo. Não vejo a hora! :o)

  3. I would love to see a slightly sweet version of this using sweet potatoes instead. Maybe you could a post like that someday?

    Thanks for the recipe too. I always cut mine by hand but I should give my grater thing a try.

  4. Satsuki Rebel,
    I bet the sweet potato would even taste better. I've baked sweet potatoes a lot but never like a chip. I bet you can use the same recipe and just substitute the regular white potato for the sweet potato.

  5. Looks sooo yummy! I want to try these with sweet potatoes and blue peruvian potatoes.

  6. I have potatoes and will be doing some cooking therapy tonight!

  7. Hi food librarian,
    I've never had blue peruvian potatoes. Do you get them at a special place or any super market?Hi
