Make a tasty snack or a great side dish for a BBQ with these Baked Potato Chips.
I am a potato lover in all forms. I love them in potato salads, baked, mashed, chips, in casseroles, stuffed…all of them, I love them! A few weeks ago I was making burgers and trying to decide on a side item for our burgers. Of course the default is french fries but I was really craving a crunchy side dish. I decided to make Baked Potato Chips instead.
These were such a hit! They don’t take long to make at all and both my kids were snacking on them too, plus I almost always have potatoes on hand so they can be made just about anytime I get a craving for them. I like to dip mine in some homemade dill dip or ranch dip, but plain is tasty too. They turned out to be the perfect pairing to our burgers and one we will continue to make frequently.
I decided to use a knife to thinly slice these but a mandolin works just as well if not better. They need to be very thinly sliced, but I like to have them thick enough where they do not burn to a crisp in the oven. It takes a few minutes to find that happy medium but eventually you will find it. Then, I placed them on a greased cookie sheet and used a hight heat spray to coat the tops. I finished them off by evenly sprinkling them with sea salt.
Once I had them finished up, I simply baked them until they were slightly crispy.
Potato Perfection! That’s about what sums it up. These are simple to make and so inexpensive too. Not only are they tasty with burgers but also sandwiches throughout the summer months. We have sandwiches a lot for lunches, so I love to pair them with those too.
