How to make homemade baked potato chips

Making homemade potato chips is so easy. First you will need to prepare potatoes by scrubbing them with a vegetable brush then rinse under the water and dry.

The trick to the perfect potato chips is to cut the potatoes as thinly and possible. This is the easiest and quickest done using a mandolin slicer - with this utensils you will get even slices. If you don't have mandolin slicer, you can do this on a wooden cutting board using a sharp kitchen knife. The result will be the same but you will need more time.

For baking chips you will need a large baking tray lined with baking paper. Once potatoes are sliced, dry each slice with a kitchen paper to soak any moist from the surface and arrange the slices in a single layer on the tray. Brush lightly each slice with olive oil using a pastry brush 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. Remove the one baked and leave the rest to bake for another 1 - 2 minutes. Leave potato chips to cool on the tray for a few minutes then remove to bowls.

Seasoning options for 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
  • blend of spices of your wish.
