Potato Chips

I'll have to admit that my biggest weakness when it comes to food is chips. I love them. Even if I was full to the brim, I'd find space to eat chips if I saw them sitting in front of me.

I have found a guilt-free way of enjoying my favourite snack. These chips are baked and not deep-fried. They take a little while but are definitely worth it. You get to control the ingredients and seasonings.


Any kind of potato you like, and as many as you'd like to use

Olive oil

Seasonings: salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, basil, etc.


Step 1: Preheat your oven to 400F.

Step 2: The easiest way to make these chips is using a mandolin. If you don't have one, it's really difficult to get the potato sliced the thinness you need. Mandolins are cheap too!

Step 3: Slice as many potatoes you'd like with the thin side of the mandolin. Soak the potato slices in water while you do the rest. Holding them in water stops the potatoes from turning brown, and it takes out excess starch.

Step 4: Drain your potato slices well, and add to a large bowl. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil over the slices. Mix altogether.

Step 5: Lay each slice on a baking sheet, making sure you don't over lap them or they will not cook evenly. Season each slice with a little bit of your chosen seasoning.

Step 6: Bake for a few minutes, then check them. You need to keep a watchful eye on these. They may need up to 5 minutes. It all depends on your oven and the thickness of your potato slices. I do not flip mine, but if you need to, do so.

Step 7: Take out of the oven and eat eat eat without feeling guilty!!
