Baked potato chips


I love potato chips, but we don't often keep them around (I tend to go through them a bit too fast). The other day, I was hungry for an afternoon snack and decided on a whim to try making baked potato chips with a couple of the little purple potatoes that I had bought at the market. They came out really good! I'm looking forward to trying this with sweet potatoes and maybe some other vegetables too.

Potatoes (they don't have to be purple): I'd say a medium sized potato would yield enough chips for about 2 people
Spray oil
Salt

Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Cut potatoes into paper-thin slices using a mandoline (a vegetable peeler will work in a pinch if you don't have a mandoline). Lightly coat a cookie sheet with spray oil, and arrange potato slices on sheet. Lightly spray the potatoes with oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake in preheated oven for about 15 minutes, turning cookie sheet once, or until potatoes are golden brown and crunchy.
