Microwave Potato Chips

A healthier alternative to a traditional snack-time favorite. Use your favorite spices to create personalized flavors. (Nutritional yeast + garlic powder = cheesy garlic chips!) The simple method makes this a fun snack to prep with kids, but if you use a mandolin, be sure to protect little fingers!

Ingredients

  • 1⅓ lbs. red potatoes, sliced thin
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • ½ tsp. salt

Directions

  1. Toss the potatoes with oil and salt to coat evenly.
  2. Coat a large microwave-proof plate with cooking spray. Arrange some potato slices in a single layer on the plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high until some slices start to brown (2-3 minutes).
  3. Turn the slices over and continue microwaving until they start to crisp and brown around the edges (2-4 minutes). Check frequently and rearrange slices as needed to prevent scorching. Repeat with the remaining potato slices.

Mushroom Beef Burgers
