Tips and Recommendations:

  • For added variety, experiment with different seasonings like smoked paprika, chili powder, or grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Make sure to slice the potatoes as thinly and evenly as possible to ensure even cooking and crispiness.
  • If you don't have a wire rack, you can place the potato slices directly on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, but they may be slightly less crispy on the bottom.
  • Be cautious when adding salt, as a little goes a long way. You can always sprinkle a bit more salt on the chips after they come out of the oven if needed.
  • Enjoy these low-calorie potato chips with your favorite dipping sauce or as a side to a sandwich or salad.

        FAQs

        1. Can I use sweet potatoes instead of russet potatoes?

        Yes, you can make low-calorie baked sweet potato chips using the same method. Adjust the seasoning to complement the sweetness of the sweet potatoes.

        2. How should I store any leftover potato chips?

        Store any leftover chips in an airtight container at room temperature. They may lose some crispiness but can be reheated in a low oven to restore their texture.

        Instructions

        Preheat the Oven:

        • 1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Place a wire rack on a baking sheet and lightly coat it with non-stick cooking spray.

        Slice the Potatoes:

        • 1. Using a mandoline slicer or a sharp knife, thinly slice the scrubbed potatoes into even rounds. The thinner you slice them, the crispier they'll become.

        Rinse and Dry:

        • 1. Rinse the potato slices under cold running water to remove excess starch. Pat them dry thoroughly with paper towels or a clean kitchen towel.

        Season the Chips:

        • 1. In a large bowl, toss the potato slices with olive oil, salt, and pepper. You can also add optional seasonings like paprika, garlic powder, or dried herbs for extra flavor.

        Arrange on the Wire Rack:

        • 1. Arrange the seasoned potato slices in a single layer on the prepared wire rack on the baking sheet. Make sure they are not overlapping.

        Bake:

        • 1. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the potato chips are golden brown and crispy. Keep a close eye on them to prevent burning.

        Cool and Serve:

        • 1. Remove the potato chips from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. As they cool, they will become even crispier.
        • 2. Serve your homemade low-calorie potato chips as a guilt-free snack option.
