Mistake number 1: I do not have a mandoline. I thought I could use my big hand-held veggie slicer. I tried, but I only got inconsistent chunks of potatoes. FAIL. So I had to slice by hand. I admit I’m a pretty good slicer but it’s so hard to slice them evenly and thin. They were all slightly different thicknesses so they all finished baking at different times.
Mistake number 2: I put too much vinegar and not enough oil on the vinegar/black pepper chips. They all suck to the baking sheet. I could barely scrape them off. FAIL.
Chip FAILMistake number 3: I put way too much salt on the chips. I gagged when I ate one. FAIL. So to say the least I learned a lot from this. I think making baked potato chips could be really easy. I now know (well I think I know) the proper seasonings to use, I just need to get a mandoline.
Stay tuned for more potato chips posts. I will get this right one day!
Salty, but yummy
