Tonight, on Thursday’s Culinary Adventure:
Wowie! My culinary wonders never cease!
Well, you can think that now, but wait until you see (read) how EASY they are to make!
What I didn’t tell you, is that these are MICROWAVE potato chips! Hot dog! I’m in!
-Take a potato. I used a plain old russet potato. But, I bet that a Yukon Gold would be delicious! So creamy and buttery…no? Did I lose all of you non-Idahoans? Sorry. Just get a potato.
-Slice it as thin as humanly possible.(We used our Bosch!)
Although, if the chips are a little thicker, it could still be good…maybe just not as crisp? Do what you can.
As an added bonus, this Culinary Adventure doubles as a science experiment for “What happens when a potato is left, sliced, in the fridge overnight open on a plate.”
Someone, not naming names, forgot to put them in a baggie.
(Hint: He has a Y chromosome, and he’s potty trained.)
So, if my potatoes look a little blackish purple to you…they are.
-Toss the sliced potato in a bag with 1 tsp. oil. (I used olive oil.)
-Spray a plate with non-stick spray.
-Arrange the oil-coated potatoes on the plate on a single layer.
-Microwave them for 5-8 minutes. Until the edges curl up and they start to turn brown. Since mine are already brown, you’ll just have to trust me that they are done.
-Sprinkle with salt.
The taste testers say:
Summary: Potato chips! That is what they taste like. Salty, crispy, delicious! And, very cheap, which we always like. I think that next time you (and I) should experiment with maybe some garlic on top? Or Rosemary? Or, you could use sweet potatoes? Yum! Good clean family fun.
