  1. Preheat oven to 450 F (230 C). Line a flat baking sheet with wax or oven paper. For potato chips, cut the potatoes into 1/8" thick slices. If you have a mandolin slicer, they are excellent to get a consistent thickness, which is important to allow the chips to cook evenly. For french fries or potato wedges, cut to the desired shape and thickness.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook the potato slices for 3 to 5 minutes. Drain well. Place into a large bowl. Drizzle with oil, sea salt, pepper and spices of your choice.
  3. Place the potato chip slices on the flat, prepared baking sheet in one layer. Bake for about 15 minutes to 30 minutes, until crisp and golden brown. Carefully remove the chips and place on a cooling rack or paper towel. Let cool for few minutes and serve.

  • Try different types of potatoes for different textures, and various crispiness. Some varieties make a softer chip, if that's what you prefer. Yams and sweet potatoes can be used, and again, different varieties will produce differing textures. Green plantains also are an excellent alternative if you want to try something a bit different.
  • French fries and potato wedges can be done very nicely with this method. They have a light crunch on the outside, soft and tender on the inside. For these, you won't have to precook them; just give them a bit more time in the oven, and flip them part way through. They'll need 30 to 45 minutes, depending on how thick the wedges are.
Delish! Enjoy!
