Microwave Potato Chips – A small batch

potato chips

A friend shared this recipe from TheKitchn.com with me, and after some experimenting, I got it to work pretty well… if I do say so myself. You absolutely need a mandolin, set on the thinnest setting to get the correct thickness for these to work. Slicing with a knife, or in a food processor, just doesn’t get them thin enough. It’s a perfect small batch to satisfy a craving.

1 small potato (or other root vegetable), scrubbed clean
Salt (other seasonings optional)

Thinly slice the potato (1/16 inch thick)
plunge slices into cold water
soak and rinse the slices until the water runs clear

Dry the slices completely, between cloth or paper towels, or in a salad spinner.

Arrange the slices on a paper towel lined plate in a single layer
(do not overlap, the slices will stick)
sprinkle with salt and/or other desired seasonings

Microwave at 100% power for 3 minutes
flip the slices
continue to microwave at 50% power at 1 minute intervals
checking and removing the chips as they brown, and continue to cook the underdone chips

I'm still not convinced, it's overly sweet and the texture is like frozen mousse. #audreycancook
