Homemade Baked Potato Chips

Author Debi

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Russett Potatoes scrubbed clean and sliced 1/16-inch thick on a mandolin
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Sea Salt & Pepper to Taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Drizzle two cookie sheets with ½ tablespoon of olive oil each. Rub the oil on the sheet with a garlic clove, pressing hard to extract the flavor. Place the cookie sheets in the oven for 5 minutes to warm them.
  2. Remove the cookie sheets from the oven, and place sliced potatoes side by side on hot baking sheets. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Bake for 7-10 minutes, rotate pans for even browning, and bake another 10-15 minutes more.
  3. Flip potatoes and bake 5 minutes longer (keeping an eye on the potatoes in case they start to turn too dark). Potatoes will be crisp and golden brown. Transfer to paper towel lined plates to cool.

Recipe Notes

Keep an eye on the potatoes during the final baking time. If they start to brown too much, remove them from the oven.
