Baked Red Potato Chips

By aggieskitchen |


Have you ever tried the “air bake” method? I discovered it a couple years ago while watching some healthy cooking shows and it’s really pretty brilliant. You basically set a cooling/baking rack into a cookie sheet and whatever food (potatoes, veggies, breaded chicken) bakes up on all side making it a little more crisp then if it was just laying in the the baking dish itself.

I have made these baked potato chips several times using this method and I love how they turn out. Crisp on the outside but still “potatoey” if you know what I mean. The thinner you slice them the crisper they get. They make a great “no guilt” side to any burger or sandwich.

Red potatoes are my favorite because they are low in starch and hold their shape well so they stay firmer. I love leaving the skins on for the nutrition and the more rustic look and taste…and to be honest, I’m just too lazy to peel potatoes so I pretty much never do.

Serve these alongside my super simple Blackened Fish Sandwich with Cilantro-Lime Mayonnaise for a great meal!
