Baked Chips

Guess what.

None of you made an offer to let me tag along for your Memorial Day weekend I made plans of my own.  Now are you regretting that offer you didn't make?  Didn't think so.

Last night I got a last minute offer to head to Newport, RI for a day on the beach.  Uhh.  Yes, please. 

So, this morning I got up bright and early, had a nice cup of coffee, packed my beach bag, and then started to make snacks for the day.  Obviously.  You can't go to the beach without snacks.

First I made {these} roasted chickpeas...Packed up some leftover oatmeal cookies from {these} whiskey oatmeal cream pies...Put together a bowl of fruit...And then I whipped up these baked chips...

Baked Chips...

Makes: 4 servings  Prep Time: 5 minutes   Bake Time: 15-20 minutes   Total Time: 25 minutes

{Printable Recipe}

4 russet potatoes, washed but not peeled
1/4 cup olive oil OR 1/2 stick butter (1/4 cup), melted
course sea salt
other seasonings (such as rosemary, black pepper, cajun seasoning, sprinkle of cayenne....)

  1. Preheat oven to 500° and grease two large baking sheets.
  2. With a mandoline slicer (obviously I didn't learn my lesson!) or a very sharp knife, slice potatoes very thin, about 1/8 inch thickness. 
  3. Press potatoes with a paper towel to dry them off and then place in a single layer on the baking sheet.  Brush with olive oil or melted butter.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with salt and any other seasonings that sound good!  I used a seasoning mix but anything would be good!  Just be creative!
