How to make homemade baked potato chips

It's so easy to make baked potato chips. First scrub potatoes, dry them then slice thinly to make crisp chips. This is the best done using mandolin slicer as this way you will get even slices. You can also do this with sharp knife on a cutting board - the result will be the same but you will need more time.

Once sliced, dry each slice with a kitchen paper to soak any moist from the surface. Arrange sliced in a single layer on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Leave space between each slice - this way they will bake better. Brush each slice just slightly with some olive oil and season with some coarse salt. 

The best temperature for baking chips is around 190°C (374°F) - 200°C (392°F) depending on the oven. Try with these temperatures and check what works best for you. 

Bake for 10 minutes, then carefully remove from the oven and using tongs flip each one to other side and bake for another 5 - 6 minutes.

Keep an eye on the chips while baking as they bake fast towards the end. Watch them carefully as they tend to burn at the end. Remove any that are ready and leave the rest. Once baked, remove from the oven and let cook on the tray for 2 - 3 minutes.

how to season baked potato chips

Spice the chips with any spice you fancy. Here are a few ideas:

  • Salt & pepper
  • Sweet or smoked paprika
  • Cayenne powder
  • Garlic powder or onion powder
  • Any other blend you like.
