If you’re anything like me, you’re always on the lookout for healthier snacks for your family. I also happen to be “working on” keeping a tight grocery budget, so it makes for some fun challenges regarding snack time.
Potatoes are cheap. I’m a sucker for cheap. Often I end up buying a 10 pound bag and use a few, then the rest go bad. That’s not saving money-in fact, it’s pretty much just throwing a few precious dollars away.
So, last week I bought a bag of Yukon Golds with a hard set determination to use the entire bag.
If you have a bit of time, and some extra potatoes lying around, you should give these a shot.
You will need:
A mandolin (not absolutely necessary, but near impossible without. Unless you’re a professional ninja slicer.)
Potatoes (I used Yukon’s, but I imagine Russets would be delicious as well.)
Big bowl of ice water
1. Slice your potatoes to 1/8 inch thick.
4. Toss in olive oil and salt.
5. Lay out in a single layer on a cookie sheet with parchment paper.6. Put in a 350 degree oven until they’re done. The original recipe said 25-30 minutes, but mine took longer. Maybe it was because of my oven, or maybe because I used Yukon’s and the recipe used Russets. Either way, check them every once in a while and flip them if you feel necessary.
