Homemade Bake Potato Chips
Man I love me some potato chips but only certain types. Since living in Germany I tend to buy less chips than I would in the State. Reason why, there are a lot of bell pepper chips, peanuts chips, tortilla chips which likely to have bell pepper, and salt and pepper chips. Salt and pepper chips is my favorite here and the only thing I can stomach. Don’t get me wrong they have a chip isle here but you will see listing of red bell pepper chips which are call Paprika chips more than the others.
Today I had the munchy for potatoes chips and I know the store close by does not sell the salt and pepper chips that I like. Plus I was not in the mood to walk a hour total for a small bag of chips. So my light bulb came on and I said to myself. I have potatoes, salt, and pepper. I am going to make my own chips. Plus it will be actually healthier for me. Because the potatoes are organic, I am baking them and not frying, and I get to control the salt content. No hidden ingredients what so every.
First thing, turning the oven on 250C=482F. Lay cookie sheet on rack. If you do not have cookie sheets you have to butter a pan for the potatoes slices not to stick. Slice the potatoes how you want (thin/thick). Place it neatly on the cookie sheet not over lapping each other. Sprinkle your season of your choice. Put tray in the center of oven. Set timer for 12-15 minutes and remove (for thinly cut) from oven. Lift potatoes off of paper so that the air can get to both side. Let sit for 15 minutes and enjoy your very own crunchy, crisp, bake potato chips. You will notice a few of the chips have brown spots. This is normal for thin chips especially the ones that are sitting to close to the back of the oven where the fan is. As long as it is not black you can eat them.
These are my first potatoes chips I have every made. Many people told me in the past it is cheaper to make my own but I am like it is quicker to buy a bag, lol. Which both are true, except when your not in distant, lol. When you have the urge you can use the small potatoes that no one like peeling for your chips and bake them instead of frying. I be darn if I waste oil for frying slices of potatoes so why not bake them.
