Oven Baked Potato Chips & Crisps Recipe
If you have read our Fried Chips and Crisps Recipe you will see that the process is virtually exactly the same until the cooking part.
After you have selected your potato and your oil, you will be ready to go. There is no Best Ever Potato Chips or Crisps Recipe. It is a very easy dish to cook that involves a lot of personal preference and will invariably require a level of experimentation to get ‘Your’ Best Ever Chips or Crisps Recipe.
You will need
4 Potatoes, peeled and sliced, preferably with a mandolin slicer to get them as thin as you can
Oil of your choice, including spray oils and maybe even butter
Salt and Seasoning
Pour a bowl of cold water. Add the Salt (you don’t have to add the salt if you don’t want to)
Place the sliced potatoes into the bowl as you slice them. Leave for around 30 minutes - if you can wait that long.
Drain the potatoes, rinse once again and then place on paper towels and pat dry. We actually place on a towel and roll it up. We unroll each batch as we go. The end purpose is to dry them.
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees (gas mark 5).
Coat or spray Potato Slices in oil and lay on a tin foil covered baking tray before inserting into the oven.
Cooking times will vary as some will cook more quickly than others. Between 12 and 30 minutes will do the lot, just remove those that start turning a nice golden brown colour as you go.
Once removed from oven, salt and season straight away so that any residual oil will soak it up and adhere it to your Potato Chips and Crisps.
