Homemade Potato Chips

January 13th, 2011 · 9 Comments · Barbecue, Easy, Healthy, Just for Fun, Potato, Snack, Snack, Uncategorized

Today I utilize another Christmas gift.

But this time, I am using the gift I gave to my parents, a Cuisinart Food Slicer. Maybe I am a bad son, or maybe just a little selfish, but as I purchased this item I began dreaming up all the wonderful food I could slice up and put on the blog! Setting my own greed aside, I hope my parents find their gift as useful as I do…

Anyways, onto the potato chips.

I experimented with three flavours: Ketchup, “Montreal Barbecue” and Dill Ranch (my favourite was the barbecue, then dill ranch, and ketchup last).


  • Olive Oil (enough to brush potatoes)
  • Ketchup popcorn spice

Montreal Barbecue

  • Diane’s steak sauce (or any BBQ sauce)
  • Montreal steak spice

Dill Ranch

  • Ranch dressing
  • Dill weed
  • Salt

As you can see, making potato chips is quite simple, slice your potatoes thin, put them in a ziploc bag with all the ingredients and mix everything around, then set in the fridge for about 10 minutes.

To cook, place chips on a cookie sheet and place in the oven for about 45 minutes on 375°F (or until crisp). After about 20 minutes take the pan out and flip the chips. This may also need to be done a few more times at the end if they are still not crispy enough. Once they are out of the oven, let them cool off a bit and enjoy them on their own or make these chips even better with your favourite dip!

    why do the patato chips have to be in the fridge

    • bsinthekitchen

      I suppose they don’t really need to go in the fridge. Placing them in a bag and letting the sit at room temperature to allow the flavours to soak in a bit would be completely fine!

    I tried these today and they were burnt (well, I still ate them but I think most people would think they were burnt. ) after 20 minutes. Maybe I wasn’t suppose to put them in a single layer? I used a mandolin to slice them.

      Perhaps mine were a little bit thicker, I know I had a few thin ones that got burnt, but it actually took me longer than expected to cook all of them. If you put more dry based ingredients on them, they would definitely cook a lot quicker.

      I guess this can be a warning for anyone else who tries it, keep a watchful eye on your chips!

    OK, I’ve just realised I’m boring…..

    I’ve been making baked chips since last year…all plain…dusted with salt and then, that’s it….

    And now I’m sitting here slapping my forehead thinking, why on earth didn’t I think of flavouring them! I have no doubt your chips tasted gorgeous, because they look like it….
