Homemade Potato Chips
Recipe type: Snack, Appetizer
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4-6
  • 4 large potatoes or enough potatoes to slice and fill two baking sheets
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil, I like to use Star Fine Foods garlic olive oil
  • optional: chopped fresh herbs
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Slice potatoes approximately ⅛ of an inch thick. I don't recommend slicing them much thinner.
  3. Place potato slices in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle on salt and pepper.
  4. Toss together until slices are well coated.
  5. Brush olive oil on two baking sheets with an edge on them. You will need an edge on the cookie sheets to retain the excess oil while the chips bake.
  6. Lay slices in a single layer on baking sheets, lightly seasoning with additional salt and pepper if you like.
  7. Place cookie sheets in the oven. Rotate them during the baking process every ten minutes or so.
  8. Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes or until chips are a light golden brown all the way through.
  9. See recipe notes for tips.
While you are rotating baking sheets during the baking process, keep an eye on your chips. Your oven may bake faster than mine.
Chips will brown all the way through even though they aren't going to be flipped.
Potato slices that are not baked until crispy may stick to the pan and break when you try to remove them.
After chips are finished baking you may need to nudge them off the baking sheet using a thin spatula.
I have never had a problem with my chips refusing to budge from the pan after baking until just crispy.
I hope you enjoy our tried and true recipe for homemade potato chips! :-)
