IMG_8191 IMG_8188 IMG_8194

OOingredients:

  • 1 pound of Russet potatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Seasoning ( I used salt & pepper and truffle salt)

You will also need a mandolin, parchment paper, and a baking sheet

OOinstructions:

  1. First you want to wash and scrub your potatoes. Heat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Adjust your mandolin to the correct width, 1/8″
  3. Slice potatoes and set aside on a paper towel, tap excess moisture.
  4. Toss your potatoes in a bowl with olive oil and seasoning of your choice. My first batch I did salt and freshly ground black pepper and my second I did truffle salt.
  5. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Then lay a single layer of your potato chips on the paper giving enough space so they aren’t touching.
  6. Put potato chips in the oven for 10 minutes. Times will vary depending on your oven so make sure to keep an eye on these guys! We put the oven light on to help us make sure they didn’t burn.
  7. After you take them out let them cool, and enjoy!
