    Smile I love potato chips

    ...and I just made myself a batch of them in my microwave !!!!!!

    As a small child, I often helped my mother make potato chips, but had not thought about doing it in my microwave.

    No oil, just a little sea salt for taste.... awesome!!!!!!!!!!

    oh yeah, you can't leave us hanging like that, since most chips are fried or baked!
    How do you nuke them?

    Please do NOT post details!! If I know I can have potato chips on hand whenever I want, then I'll NEVER stop eating them!!

    They are not unhealthy if you don't double the weight of the potatoes with salt!
    That's why you make them yourself!

    It's not hard, and worked pretty well. Like all recipes, you just have to tweak a little.

    Take a potato (I used Russetts) and slice it really, really thin on a mandolin type slicer. Put the potatoes in a bowl of ice water and soak for about 5-10 minutes to leach out the starch. Rinse them really well, pat them dry with paper towels. (Only do one batch at a time, as the ice water keeps them crisp). Arrange them on paper towels on a microwave safe plate. Sprinkle with salt (I like sea salt) or other seasoning. If you want them to brown a little more you can spray them lightly with olive oil before the salt. Yum!!!!!!

    Microwave on high power for 3 minutes, turn them over and cook another 3 minutes on 50% power. My microwave is 1300 watt.

    Make sure the chips don't overlap on the plate or they'll stick together.
