Homemade potato chips are easier to make than you think and bake up crispy in the oven - no frying required.


  • 3 - 4 large russet potatoes
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp salt


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!
