and I suddenly had a craving for homemade potato chips.
Oprah’s recipe is good, but I found it a bit much, so I changed it up slightly.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees farenheit.
- Lightly oil baking sheet with extra virgin olive oil or cooking spray.
- VERY lightly – I liked the olive oil version better, but I used WAY too much the first time around. 1 tsp will be enough for an entire baking sheet.
- Put the oiled pan in the oven and let it warm up while you slice your potatoes.
Slice your potatoes very thinly. The recipe suggests about 1/16th of an inch, but I liked mine a bit thicker than that.
(I used the guard this time, so all fingers remained intact!)
Pull pan out of the oven and lay the potato pieces out in a single layer – lightly season with salt and pepper.
Bake for ~8 minutes then flip the potatoes to their other side.
Bake for an additional 10 – 14 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
If you went with thicker sliced pieces, you may have to go 12 and 15 minutes.
For the cheesy garlic dip:
You will need…
In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well.
Serve with warm potato chips.

They were a hit! My first (soggier) batch and my second attempt.
In fact, even the crispier ones – not burnt, just crispier – taste pretty good!
Two potatoes will fill two baking sheets, but you’ll want to do two – they really are good!
Have a great one!
