I have wanted one for so long, and one day while shopping at a kitchen outlet store my mom and I found one for under $10. She bought it and marked it off my Christmas list! (And yes, this was in May, and by December 25th I had forgotten about it!) It's nothing fancy, but perfect for what I will need it for. It comes with various attachments for slicing, julienne, and grating.
I knew the first thing I wanted to do with it was make homemade potato chips! To be honest, I've tried to do these before by thinly slicing the potatoes with a sharp knife, and they never turned out crisp enough, obviously because I could never get the slices thin enough! Well, now I can and did! These make a great side dish that you can feel good about giving your family, because you control the ingredients! Flavor them however you like, from garlic, to cheese to herbs! If you are going to be hosting a Super Bowl party, wow your guests with a big bowl of these so they can snack without feeling too guilty!
I am such a foodie, new kitchen gadgets make me so happy! They are only topped by a new Coach purse...but you can't cook soup in it!
Baked Potato Chips
4 large baking potatoes, scrubbed, peeled and patted dry
1/4 cup butter, melted
French Fry Seasoning
Preheat oven to 500. Using a mandolin, thinly slice potatoes about 1/8" thick. Pat slices dry between paper towels. Place on 2 greased baking sheets. Brush with melted butter. Cook 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and crisp. Start checking after 15 minutes and rotate baking sheets once during cooking. Be careful, once these start to brown, they can burn easily. Remove from oven and sprinkle with French fry seasoning. Allow to cool before serving.
