Recipe: Homemade Potato Chips

Sharing is caring!

Potato chips are easier to make than you think and bake up crispy in the oven – no frying required. They’re a great way to use up that extra large bag of russet potatoes.


3-4 russet potatoes
3 Tbsp vegetable oil (or other neutral tasting oil)

Heat oven to 400 degrees. 

Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. 

Scrub your potatoes clean in cold water. 

Fill a large bowl with cold water and set aside. 

Slice potatoes using a mandolin set to a super thin slice.  

Place potato slices into a bowl of cold water. 

Toss them around in the cold water to rinse off all the starches. 

Remove from water and lay the potato slices out on a large, clean kitchen towel. Gently pat dry to remove excess water. 

Place potato slices in a large bowl. Add vegetable oil and salt. 

Toss everything together to coat potato slices. 

Spread slices out on prepared baking sheets. 

Bake for 20-25 mins, flipping halfway through.

Note: Keep an eye on them towards the end of the baking time. The potato chips will go from done to burned quickly!
