Potato Chips

Submitted by: DAIZEEFLI

Introduction

These are a great alternative when you need the crunch factor!! Taste like Lay's chips! These are a great alternative when you need the crunch factor!! Taste like Lay's chips!
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1 small potato
    1 tsp olive oil
    pinch or so of salt

Directions

Slice potato on mandolin in very thin slices. Toss with Olive Oil. Place on microwaveable plate that has been sprayed with cooking spray in single layer. LIGHTLY salt (a little goes a LONG way on these). Put in microwave for 2 - 3 minutes until they start to brown just slightly. Turn to other side, rearranging as necessary so darker ones are in the middle and lighter ones on outside. Bake another 30 seconds to 1 minute or until browning occurs slightly. Let cook (they crisp up as they cool!) . Makes 1 serving. These taste just like Lay's w/o the fat or calories or preservatives. (they keep 3 days in airtight container - but they won't last that long!)

**Note: made these for hubby again last night. Wanted to add a few tips. DON'T overcrowd the dish you are baking in. Overlapping makes them all stick together.. Also, depending on how many and what type of dish you use, they may take a little longer than I previously wrote. Watch them carefully and it is when they just start to brown on the edges or middle that you can turn them. Then keep an eye on them because they go quickly. Also, make sure they are coated (lightly) in oil. This helps them cook. ENJOY!

  • Make it lighter; skip the fat an place them on a bacon dish (with ridges) in the microwave. Delish and no fat! - 12/8/12

  • Well... I don't have a mandolin slicer so that was the hard part. :-) The ones that cooked correctly were excellent! Some were not crunchy, but that was because they were slightly thicker than the others. Overall a great alternative to the regular potato chips! Thanks for sharing! - 6/30/09

    I'll give them a try but I don't like dark (kinda burnt) potato chips. Lays is the only brand I will eat but not the baked ones. Can't stand those. - 6/17/09

    They really don't have the burnt chip taste. I don't like those either. And I am a BIG Lays fan myself (reg..not baked..ick!) Just watch them and don't let them get too dark. They do have to brown slightly. Of course, they aren't Lays..but they ARE better as far as sat. fats and such. Try 'em!
