Homemade Potato Chips

Started doing homemade chips. Mandolin, microwave, parchment paper, 4 minutes. One of the greatest revelations of all time.Try it everyone, please. I used red potatoes, and I can't wait to do some sweets and beet chips. Parchment is key, and they taste awesome.

Tried this several months ago and they were terrible. I thought it was because the original recipe had called for a waffled microwave tray and I had only had parchment on a plate, but I must have done something else incorrectly. Since that time, you are now at least the third person I've heard sing the praises of this method, so it looks like it's time to try again.

NO MANDONLIN!?? Travesty. I got a sweet one on overstock years ago, some no name, but all stainless steel, has a German name but probably chinese made, good blades...paid about 60 bucks. Go for it!

 

So yes, it really is the shit. The only problem I've been having is production. I can fit about 20 or fewer chips onto a piece of parch, and I just put it right on the micro plate. I just wish I could find a good stackable solution. Really though, no fat, no oil, little salt and whatever other seasons you like (i used old bay yesterday), and pat them dry. it's really great. Happy chipping.
