Baked Potato Chips
In an effort to prove to my boys that chips really do come from a potato, we made potato chips at home. For two children who steer clear of all things vegetables, this process was rather enlightening. A mandoline speeds up the job of slicing the potato in uniform, thin slices and that is really all the work needed. Coat a baking sheet pan with cooking spray then lay the potato slices such that they are not overlapping. Spray the potatoes with the cooking spray and sprinkle with a small amount of salt. Bake in a hot oven (convection will crisp the potatoes faster), 450 degrees F for about 25 minutes.
I found this recipe for oven-fried potato chips at Simply Recipes which got me off to a good start.
