How to make it

  • If potatoes are old, peel and slice thin, 1/16" in thickness, slicing across the potato.
  • If the potatoes are new or good skins, DO NOT PEEL, just scrub well, then slice them 1/16" in thickness, slicing across the potato.
  • Sprinkle with your choice of spices or herbs or just leave them plain.
  • If you have a microwave bacon tray, place the sliced potatoes flat on the tray in a single layer.
  • Cover with a microwaveable, round heavy plastic cover.
  • Microwave on HIGH (full power) for 7 to 8 minutes.
  • Cooking time could vary slightly, depending on the wattage of your microwave.
  • You do not have to turn the sliced potatoes over.
  • If you do not have a bacon tray, use a microwave safe casserole dish.
  • Rub the inside of the dish with some olive oil for the first batch of potato chips.
  • I do not know why, but I find that if you do not rub oil the first time, some chips will tend to stick to the dish.
  • After the first batch is done, you do not have to rub the dish again.
  • Continue to microwave the remainder of sliced potatoes as noted above.
  • NOTE:
  • You can also use PARCHMENT PAPER to place your potato slices. Place your potato slices, then sprinkle them with whatever you like and then place another piece of parchment paper on top.
  • This will help microwave the potatoes more evenly and they should turn out nice and crisp.
  • Granulated garlic powder with parsley.
  • Cracked black pepper, grated parmesan and sea salt sprinkled after removing from microwave.

    Got a question for ya: How do you slice a potato 1/16" thin? I'm thinking on using an electric commercial slicer - yeah those kind that deli shops use to cut meat - only this would cut potatoes. I don't know how else to slice potato 1/16" thin. Any ideas?????

    Just a little FYI: When I made these tonight, I added a little olive oil to the plate I was using; placed the potatoes on the plate; seasoned them; flipped them over (& moved them around the plate a bit so the oil covered the other side)and then seasoned the side facing up. There was absolutely no sticking. Also, I suggest checking the chips after about 6 mintues to make sure they are not overcooking. My favorite variation is to sprinkle them with a bit of sea salt after removing them from the micro. They were a HUGE hit!
