DealDash Recipes: Baked Potato Chips

Who doesn’t love potato chips? Salty, crispy, potato-y goodness abounds! Unfortunately, traditional potato chips are full of fat, oils, and calories. Here’s a recipe for baked potato chips that is much lighter than the original.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Russet potatoes
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven – 400 degrees is just right
  • Scrub the potatoes completely, rinse, and pat dry. Using an extremely sharp knife, Slice the potatoes very thin (about 1/8″ or thinner.)
  • Place potato slices in a large bowl and toss well until coated with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  • Arrange the seasoned potato slices in a single layer on a cooling rack placed on top of a baking sheet to allow even cooking on both sides of the potato slices. If you don’t have a cooling rack, then line your baking pan with parchment paper, and flip them after 10 minutes. Bake for 18 to 25 minutes until the potato slices are browned and crisp. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. They are best served soon after.
  • You may season them again with salt and pepper while they are cooling.

If you would like to try different flavors, here are a few ideas:

Salt and Vinegar – After thinly slicing the potatoes, place them in a large bowl filled with vinegar, and set aside for a least 2 hours. Please note, the longer they soak, the more vinegary the flavor. Drain potato slices and toss with oil and salt.

BBQ – BBQ chips are easy! Just substitute 2 Tbs of BBQ seasoning in place of the pepper when you are seasoning the chips.

These chips are delicious to eat, and fun to make! If you were feeling very industrious, it would be easy to double, triple, or even quadruple the recipe to make a large amount of chips for a party.

This recipe calls for a very sharp knife. If your knives are less than sharp lately, why not get a new knife on DealDash? DealDash has all of the latest knives and cooking accessories.

DealDash Picks the Right Knives

Sometimes it’s difficult to know exactly which knife that you should use for the job. Here is a handy guide to help sort things out.

  • Chef’s Knife – This knife is your everyday “go-to” knife. You use the Chef’s Knife for all of your basic preparation such as chopping, slicing and dicing, and mincing.
  • Utility Knife – The Utility Knife is very similar to the Chef’s Knife, but the blade is a bit slimmer. This is a very useful knife to have around for everyday jobs such as slicing the meat off of a rotisserie chicken.
  • Paring Knife – This little fella is a huge help in the kitchen with peeling off the skin of veggies, trimming, and slicing veggies up for a snack.
  • Bread Knife – I’m pretty sure you can guess what this one is for! It’s also great for slicing tomatoes without bruising them.
  • Santoku Knife – This knife is a hybrid between a Chef’s Knife and a meat cleaver. This knife is great for those difficult cuts of meat, slicing, and chopping.
  • Carving Knife – This knife’s main job is to carve large cuts of meat such as your Thanksgiving turkey or ham.
  • Steak Knife – Again, I’m pretty sure you can guess how these are used.

There are other types of knives, of course, but these are the most common ones, and the ones that you are most likely to find in a knife set. There are also usually a pair of kitchen scissors and a honing blade to sharpen your knives, as well as a butcher’s block to keep the knives in.
