These look great. I never though that baking them would really result in a crispy chip, but it sure looks like it does. Thanks for sharing.

These look just as good as fried chips! Great idea to boil them first. Thanks!

mmmm....I tried doing this but without boiling the potatoes. I think they will turn out better if I boiled them....will have to try it next time. They certainly look nice and crispy!

I'm assuming the calorie count is for the WHOLE batch, and not just one serving... By the way, how much is considered ONE serving?
Re:

Yes, the  calories are for the whole batch. I think in this case the serving size depends from person to person :).

Nice post! I'm always on the look out for healthier alternatives to junk food. This is a good one. Thanks for the post!

Very nice looking potato chips. I've been experimenting with various methods on preparing and I'm wondering what boiling the chips before baking has on the finished chips. Thank you for another reason to try making baked potato chips.
Re:

The potatoes are boiled to lower starch level and to give them a better flavor and texture. Hope you liked them if you already tried this recipe. 

On January 27, 2013 at 06:35 pm, might as well fry them said...
the whole point of baked chips is to avoid the oil, but you are adding over 400 calories of oil. Might as well grab a bag of lay's. You are only avoiding the preservatives by making them at home.
Re:

I was  not necessarily trying to make chips with no oil, i was trying not to fry them in deep oil, and yes to avoid preservatives. 3 tbsp of oil is around 360 calories,(not over 400 ) but you can add less or none if that pleases you more. This recipe is more about the technique, the fact that it is important to boil them for few minutes and only then to bake them.  They should be good with no oil too, didn't;t try yet, I am not so afraid about oil in general, if used with moderation. If you try them with noi oil , before me, let me know, I am curious how they are:)

I followed the recipe as written and I can't get the crispness that you usually see in normal potato chips. The texture is more like that of a scalloped potato. Am I messing up by eating them pretty just when they come out of the oven or am I not cooking them long enough? Also, just as an FYI, you can bake the potato slices without oil. I really thought they'd be a burnt mess without it, but they actually came out just as if I did put oil on them. I learn something new everyday....
Re:

Yes, after the potatoes cool they get the texture of chip more, actually they get pretty crispy. Also is important for the slices not to be too thick either.  Thank you for letting me know you cooked them with no oil. Good to know you can do either way.

I boiled my thinley sliced potatoes for 5 minutes and they fell apart and definitely won't have the nice round potatoe chip shape.....did I do something wrong? They are in the oven now....so hopefully they still taste great. :-)
Re:

I don't think you necessarily did something wrong, maybe the slices were too thin, or the water was boiling too hard, or the potatoes were not the right ones. I use red potatoes, that are not breaking, and keep their shape better. 

Re:

Let me know how they turned for you.

I am trying them out for the first time right now, they taste very good even before I put them in the oven!

Just found this recipe now, i simply MUST try this for myself. I wonder how my purple potatoes that i am growing this year would fare with this? It would certainly be fun to be eating purple colored potato chips, lol! They grow to be relatively the same size as the reds, so we will see once i get a harvest of them.

I have been looking around for a good "baked" potato chips recipe for a while. All the others I have found wanted me to either fry them or go through a million steps. This one seems simple and your pictures make them look great, I will be trying these for sure!
Re:

I am glad you discovered this recipe, hope they will turn right for you, let me know. :)

We just left our local farmer's market and picked up a few beautiful purple and red potatoes and fabulous rosemary infused olive oil. The farmer recommended that my kids try to make potato chips with them and have a taste test and we found your recipe...thank you so much for sharing. We cannot wait to try them!

We made these last night and, while they were very good, they never got crisp. I don't know what we did wrong, but they came out of the oven limp and soggy. I wonder if it was because my husband used too much oil (he didn't listen when I said three tablespoons, just poured in a bunch). We're going to have to try them again though, next time measuring. Everyone loved them anyway.
Re:

Thanks for trying the recipe, sorry it didn't go perfectly for you. I haven't made them for a while now, but as I remember they get crisp while they cool, don't serve them right after you take them from the oven, they need to rest for few minutes and they get crispy. Don't cover them with plastic. Another thing is the thickness of the potato slices, around 1/8 inch (about 3 mm) works well, if too thick they might not get crispy.  Hope this helps.

My boyfriend and I LOVE chips making this recipe perfect for us given that its quick, easy, healthy and not to expensive however, I was wondering if anyone had any good seasoning suggestion for the potatoes.
