This homemade potato chip recipe is a family favorite around these parts. I use red potatoes because I prefer the taste and they are a little healthier.
They are fast and easy to make (which is a dream for any mother and wife). Here is a step by step recipe, wish photos, of how to make these scrumptious side snacks!
What you’ll need:
7-10 Organic Red Potatoes
Organic Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon of Dried Garlic (Minced)
1 Teaspoon of Dried Basil
2 Baking Sheets
Step 1: Start of by washing 7-10 organic red potatoes and preheating the over to 375°.
This will serve 4-5 people. If you would like to serve more, then add in some more potatoes!
Step 2: Slice your potatoes into slivers (as shown). Don’t get them too thin, or they will burn very quickly!
Step 3: Spray two baking sheets with your choice of olive oil or veggie oil. I love Simple Truth organic olive oil spray by Kroger!
Step 4: Lay your potato slices in rows on your baking sheets. They can overlap if you need more room.
Step 5: Drizzle olive oil over potatoes. I always just do this to taste–no measurements needed!
Step 6: Add your dried minced garlic and basil to your potatoes. Again, if you want to add more for taste, then go for it!
Step 7: Place in the over for 10-15 minutes (depending on how crispy you want them) at 375°.
Step 8: Flip your potatoes to the other side (no, they won’t look as pretty now, but they will taste great) and bake for another 5-10 minutes.
Step 9: Let your potatoes cool and serve with a yummy sandwich (our favorite is sloppy joe)!
Helpful hint: The potatoes also taste great with any sort of dressing and it’s easier to get the kids to eat them this way (we always use ranch).
Now go eat these yummy snacks and make your husband do those dishes!
Have a great Saturday everyone (:
