If you’d have told me that I’d be eating potato chips cooked in a microwave oven today, I’d have called you a big, fat, stinking liar. Then I would have apologized profusely, because that’s just rude.

As it turns out though, that’s exactly what I made today. After being left with an abundance of russet potatoes a couple of weeks back I’ve been looking for just about anything I can do with these things. And it turns out that if you slice potatoes super thin, line them up on a piece of parchment paper and use a bit of cooking spray you get some pretty nice homemade substitutes. 

Sure, there’re not as good as the ones that my Grandpa would fry up himself when I was a kid, but they’re actually not that far off the mark. 

I think I finally have an excuse to bite the bullet and get a Mandolin now. You can only shave so many potatoes with a vegetable peeler after all.

Here’s a link to the original recipe I used, although mileage will vary depending on your own microwave oven.
