I debated about a recipe exchange this week, it’s been a busy, snowy week and I was contemplating curling up with a good book until spring. But then I made these great oven baked chips and thought, I must share.
There was lots of cooking this week, for a change, so the recipe exchange will be, as JefferyW often posts, be made up of tidbits.
Starting with a new chocolaty Nutella Brownie, recipe here, that also happens to be gluten-free.
JeffreyW made some great looking Buffalo Chicken, photos and recipe here.
Chuck roasts were on sale, so I made a Slow-Cooker Pot Roast, full dinner menu and recipes here.
And for the pet lovers, a really quick Bixby Update is here. To say he is trying my patience would be kind. Puppies.
What’s on your plate this weekend? We’re digging out from about 20 inches of snow, but the sun is shining, so that’s a plus. How about you?
Tonight’s featured recipe happened because I was at the store and grabbing a bag of frozen french fries (don’t judge) and saw they had bags of oven potato chips. I thought that sounded good and easy to make, so I passed the bag by and instead made my own.
They are similar to my Potato Wedges, but because they are sliced thinner, they are really crispy on the outside with a creamy center. I will be making them again. I used russets because that’s what I had on hand and it was snowing, so that’s what I used. I think they worked great for these.
Garlic and cayenne are optional, but don’t skimp on the salt and pepper. You can also use alternate spices or herbs, like rosemary, thyme, marjoram or parsley flakes. Maybe some chopped chives just before you take them out of the oven.
Oven Potato Chips
- 2 to 4 large potatoes
- light olive or vegetable oil
- salt and pepper
- garlic powder
- cayenne pepper
baking sheet, mandoline or grater
Wash and scrub potatoes and slice into thick slices. Mix oil with salt, pepper, garlic powder and dash of cayenne pepper. Toss with potato slices and arrange on well oiled baking sheet.
Bake at 450 degrees, turn at about the 10 minute mark, or when browned on the bottom and continue to bake until nicely browned on the other side, approximately another 10 minutes. Watch carefully and remove any slices that are thinner and brown more quickly.
You can brush with more oil if needed as they bake. Serve piping hot.
I served these with my Cheese Stuffed Burgers and a side salad for a nice dinner.
That’s it for this week. Have a great weekend, hope everyone is dug out – TaMara
