Microwave Potato Chips

I can't remember the last time I ate potato chips.  I must say it has been at least a year.  I don't buy them unless I'm at the local Subway Sandwich shop and they are the baked kind (and that is only on a rare occasion - I'm not a fan of all the 'extra' ingredients).

I saw this recipe online for Microwave Potato Chips at EatingWell.com - "Where Good Food Meets Good Taste" and decided to give it a try.

One word to describes these chips: Yum! 
I purchased a couple russet potatoes and today I sliced and cooked up one of them (I'll be cooking the other tomorrow). 

What I loved about these chips:

1. Super easy to make (if you have a food processor slicing is done in seconds).
2. Easy portion control compared to having a bag of chips sitting on the counter. 
3. You can't get anything fresher and there's no artificial ingredients or preservatives.
4. They are not greasy or high in fat.
5. Much cheaper than buying a bag of chips (a way to eat something that's tasty and crunchy without having to buy something that's processed).
6. My kids loved them and what better way to get them involved in preparing food.

I was going to take a picture of these chips to post but they were all gone before I could get my camera. :-)
I'll be making these again tomorrow and will have my camera ready.

Off to get some zzzzzz's.  I am scheduled to run 4.5 miles tomorrow morning (run 5mins, walk 1min) and then it's a Butts and Guts class.  Hoping the good thoughts drown out the doubt!  I will do this no matter what!

  1. I love your posts about food but I need the recipes. Bragging about your great food finds doesn't help us if we can't have the recipe! LOL! Keep up the good work!

  2. Danielle Thank you for the suggestion on posting the recipe on my site. It's something I have been thinking about and considering.

    For now please help yourself to the recipe by clicking on the words above 'microwave potato chips'. The words link to the recipe. Enjoy!

    Note: All of the recipes can be found online and have links -except for the Americas Test Kitchen chocolate chip cookies- I'm hoping to get permission from them so I can post the recipe from their published cookbook :-) Here is the link to the cookbook I got the chocolate chip cookie recipe from: http://www.amazon.com/Americas-Kitchen-Healthy-Family-Cookbook/dp/1933615567

    Cheers! and thanks so much for reading and taking the time to post a comment.

  3. Ya know, after I posted that comment, I thought "why don't I just google it?" LOL! Thanks for being an inspiration. I just started a weight loss blog, I'd love if you'd follow it to give me tips on things I am doing right and things I could do better!
