Potato Chips -- Sin Free (thanks PHEBESS)


Sunday, August 24, 2014

PHEBESS suggested this simple, fast, nifty trick:

Slice a potato as thinly as possible.

Arrange on a piece of parchment paper in the microwave, 1 layer thick. That's it: no oil, no salt.

Microwave on high for 8-10 minutes until brown and crispy.

A little variation that doesn't add many calories -- during the last minute, a light sprinkling of grated Parmesan or grated old cheddar.

And of course it's easy to imagine other variations -- or using individual chips as crackers.

Mmmmmm. I really believe I like these better than conventional potato chips which now taste too greasy and too salty for me!!

These are delicious warm and crunchy!!

    I don't have a microwave, but I am sure these could be made in the oven, just would take longer.

    Way to skinny down a treat that many people stay away from for the fat, salt and calories. Now, we don't have to!!!

    WTG making your own gives you the power to have what you want when you want. The question is, do you want to make them. Built in control. :)

    Potatoes are a great source of potassium - not only guilt-free but we can feel virtuous too. emoticon

    I will try it! I have a mandoline so can slice my freshly-dug potatoes very, very thin! If potato chips have the "Watermellen Seal of Approval" -- I know they are going to be AWE-SOME!
