Game Time Decision Chips

Facebooktwitterpinterestyoutubeinstagram

A few weeks ago I had over-purchased on potatoes for a recipe I was working on and was left with 1 potato remaining.  Since it was Sunday and my husband was watching the NFL playoffs, I decided to put that potato to use and make some homemade chips.  I generally don’t cook with salt, so wanted to give my chips flavor from other sources.  I quickly took inventory of my spice cabinet and went with an herb flavor for my chips.  This particular batch has ground rosemary sprinkled on top.  I added a chipotle ketchup on the side for some added zing.  They even took my husband’s attention away from the playoffs for a few moments to enjoy them!

The beauty of these chips is you can make them your own with whatever spice/flavoring you want.  Put that salt shaker down and get creative!  These are great to enjoy on their own, or step up and add a low cal/low fat dipping sauce on the side.

These chips are low in fat and sodium while bursting with vitamin C, potassium, and fiber.  Crunch into a batch today and impress your guests by serving them at your next party!

RECOMMENDED REGISTRY ITEMS: Mandoline, olive oil mister, and pastry brush

Game Time Decision Chips

Servings 2 cups of chips

Ingredients

  • Extra virgin olive oil for brushing
  • 1 medium potato with skin on Idaho or Russet are best

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Use a mandoline to cut the potatoes lengthwise into 1/8-inch thick slices (See Notes). Arrange the slices in 1 flat layer on the baking sheet.
  4. Using an olive oil mister, lightly spray the potato slices then go over with a pastry brush to evenly coat the slices (See Notes).
  5. Bake until golden throughout, 15-30 minutes, checking often since they brown at different rates.
  6. Transfer to paper towels and sprinkle with your seasoning of choice while still hot.

Recipe Notes

A mandoline will help create a thin shape for your chips, but if you don't have one, a good ol' fashioned chef knife will do.

If you don't have an olive oil mister, you can pour a little olive oil on to a plate and use a pastry brush to spread oil on to slices.
