"Potato Chips"

These are not really potatoe chips, its just they end up looking like them. They are baked potatoes that taste like a mix between curly fries and potato wedges if you do them right. These are SUPER SIMPLE to make and that's why I love them.

about 4 medium russet potatoes
2 tbsp butter/margarine - melted
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp seasoned salt

Preheat oven to 450 degrees and grease a baking sheet.

Cut unpeeled potatoes into 1/4-inch slices, but don't cut all the way through. Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet cut-side up. Spread slices apart without breaking.

In a small bowl, mix butter and oil together, then lightly brush mixture over potato skins and in between slices (ok I admit it, I just pour the butter and oil all over the potatoes!). Sprinkle with salt. Bake for 40 mins, or until potatoes are tender and edges are brown (best when edges are crispy).

When they come out of the oven, the bottoms are kinda hard so I just cut all the little circle (chips) off and then we dip them in ranch. (But you can do whatever you like with them!)


  1. I make these... sort of. I cut the potatoes all the way through and lay them out in a flat single layer in a baking sheet. I drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt & pepper and bake at 400% for about 20 minutes or so. Comes out delicious!
