    Potato Chip

    "These potato chips are very easy to make in the microwave. Also, they are healthier for you as they are not cooked in any oils. This method has intrigued so many people that have tasted them and then made them for themselves. The younger people just love them."


    4 large potatoes (russet, yellow gold, white or red potatoes)

    your choice spices (granulated garlic powder, seasoning salt, cayenne pepper, dried dill weed, granulated garlic powder)

    vegetable oil, for microwave bacon tray


    1) If potatoes are old, peel and slice thin, less than 1/16" in thickness (paper thin), slicing across the potato.

    2) If the potatoes are new or good skins, DO NOT PEEL, just scrub well, then slice them less than 1/16" in thickness (paper thin), slicing across the potato.

    3) Place potato slices in a bowl, sprinkle with some salt (if desired) cover with cold water and let sit for 10 minutes.

    4) Remove potato slices in batches onto paper toweling and pat dry.

    5) If you have a microwave bacon tray, rub the tray with a vegetable oil, then place the sliced potatoes flat on the tray in a single layer.

    6) Sprinkle with your choice of herbs or spices or just leave them plain.

    7) Cover with a microwaveable, round heavy plastic cover.

    8) Microwave on HIGH (full power) for 5 to 5 1/2 minutes or until they curl slightly and are a very light brown in color.

    9) Cooking time could vary slightly, depending on the wattage of your microwave and the thickness of the slices. The thinner the slices, the quicker they cook and the tastier they are.

    10) You do not have to turn the sliced potatoes over.

    11) If you do not have a bacon tray, use a microwave safe casserole dish.

    12) Rub the inside of the dish with some olive oil for the first batch of potato chips.

    13) I do not know why, but I find that if you do not rub oil the first time, some chips will tend to stick to the dish.

    14) After the first batch is done, you do not have to rub the dish again.

    15) Continue to microwave the remainder of sliced potatoes as noted above.

    16) If using a bacon tray, after the first batch is cooked, you can reduce the microwaving time to 4 1/2 minutes and even less as you continue to microwave each batch.

    17) NOTE: You can also use PARCHMENT PAPER to microwave the potato slices. Lightly spray or rub the parchment paper with some vegetable oil or a Pam spray. Place your potato slices on the parchment paper, then sprinkle them with whatever you like and then place another piece of parchment paper on top. This will help microwave the potatoes more evenly and they should turn out nice and crisp. Microwaving time should be between 5 and 6 minutes.

    18) Another, after removing chips from microwave, sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese, zap for a few seconds to melt the cheese, then add a dab of sour cream.

    A potato chip recipe posted to the forum, using potatoes and oil for deep frying.


    6 or more medium lg. potatoes

    Oil or fat for deep frying



    Wash and peel the potatoes. Slice very thin.

    An old fashioned cabbage slicer can be used (careful of the fingers) - or use a sharp knife or food processor with a thin slicing blade.

    Put the slices at once into a bowl of cold water and let stand for at least one hour. Ice water is best, but you can set the whole bowl in the refrigerator if you wish. Dry well by shaking them in a towel.

    Fry in hot oil at 390 degrees F. until a light golden brown. Don't try frying too many at once, better to put one layer on the frying basket. Drain on paper towels or any kind of plain crumpled absorbent paper.

    If you haven't any paper, use a worn dish towel. Salt lightly. These can be kept for some time if they are sealed into plastic bags or containers after they have cooled.

    Potato Chips

    INGREDIENTS (Nutrition)

    1 tablespoon vegetable oil

    1 potato, sliced paper thin (peel optional)

    1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste


    Pour the vegetable oil into a plastic bag (a produce bag works well). Add the potato slices, and shake to coat.

    Coat a large dinner plate lightly with oil or cooking spray. Arrange potato slices in a single layer on the dish.

    Cook in the microwave for 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned (if not browned, they will not become crisp). Times will vary depending on the power of your microwave. Remove chips from plate, and toss with salt (or other seasonings). Let cool. Repeat process with the remaining potato slices. You will not need to keep oiling the plate.
