Oven-fried homemade potato chips recipe, made with thin slices of Russet potatoes, butter, and salt.
Use a mandoline if you have one to help cut the potatoes in thin, even slices.
- 4 russet (baking) potatoes, peeled and sliced diagonally 1/8 inch thick
- 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) of butter, melted
- Coarse salt to taste
Pat the potatoes dry between paper towels and arrange them in one layer in 2 buttered cookie sheets; if you have a non-stick cooking spray, this works fine for greasing the pans. Brush the potatoes with the butter, bake them in a preheated 500°F oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. Sprinkle them with the salt.
Yield: Serves 4.
