Potato Chips are one of the world’s most popular snacks. With their salty deliciousness they are what I consider a guilty pleasure. So I thought why not change that up and take away a bit of the guilt? So we are going to make our very own Microwave Potato Chips! Yes, you read that right. And just in case you are wondering, these potato chips come out beautifully crispy and crunchy just like store bought, except ours contain all natural ingredients. To make Potato Chips, you thinly slice Potatoes with a chopping knife (you can use a serrated knife if that’s the only one you have). Plunge the thinly sliced potato into an ice bath. This washes away the starch and helps the chips crisp once cooked. Pat the potato slices dry and lay them in a single layer on a plate lined with parchment paper. Brush both sides of each slice with some olive oil and sprinkle over some salt. Microwave for a few minutes then flip over and microwave again until crisp and golden. What did I tell you? The photos don’t lie. Beautifully cooked, crunchy Potato Chips made in the Microwave. Now just make them yourselves and spread the word.
