Ta-Da! Microwave Potato Chips

| May 18, 2006 | 5 Comments


This recipe is a winner! I first saw it in Sweetnicks’ ARF/5-a-Day roundup Tuesday and it looked good so I decided to try it. It comes from 28 Cooks, and is officially called Microtato Chips.

Flavoring: I tried them four ways: sea salt and pepper, sea salt, pepper and garlic powder, garlic salt and paprika (pictured above), and teriyaki, just for fun. The teriyaki was a DISASTER! It lacked the taste I was looking for, and ultimately burned.

Cooking Time: One note I have is that I found the 5-7 minute time frame was a bit much for this. In my microwave 3 1/2 minutes to 5 minutes is more accurate. But I imagine with a slightly older model (mine is only a year old) it would take longer. So just keep an eye on them if you are making them.

In any case, these are awesome. I may never purchase chips again. And the fact that they are preservative free, chemical free and basically fat free makes it all the sweeter.

Hmmm…now there is a thought for another variety: sweet potato chips.

    Aren’t they awesome?? I still can’t believe they are completely fat-free!
    I heard someone tried them with sweet potatoes. That’s next for me.
    And you’re probably right about the microwave. Mine is about 4 years old, so it does depend on age and model, I’m sure!
    They look awesome!

    They are awesome!

    I will be trying sweet potatoes soon too, as well as other varieties. I was just using run of the mill Idaho’s today.

    Another great flavor combo was rosemary, paprika, salt and pepper. Actually that is my favorite so far. I made a whole batch for my husband, but couldn’t resist eating a few.

    The Sea Salt & Pepper combo sounds right up my alley…
