Jan. 30 ~ More Clean "Junk"

My biggest junk food craving is always potato chips. I've been experimenting with making a clean version at home. I have finally tweaked it enough that I am ready to post it. SO YUMMY!!!



1 Yukon Gold Potato

1 tbsp EVOO

Sea Salt, Mrs. Dash, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Black Pepper

all to taste

Parsley for garnish

1.) Preheat oven to 350*F

2.) Thinly slice potato - the thinner your slices are the crispier your chip will be

3.) In a bowl, mix EVOO and all seasonings except salt and pepper

4.) Spray a cookie sheet with an olive oil cooking spray. Make certain sheet is totally coated with oil.

5.) Dip the potato slices in the EVOO/Spice mixture, then place them in a single layer on the cookie sheet.

6.) Bake in the oven for 10-20 minutes. Watch the potatoes very carefully and remove when they become brown.

7.) Line a plate with a paper towel and put the chips on plate to cool. Sprinkle with parsley for a little bit of color.

The entire recipe above contains 284 calories, 13 g of fat, 37 g of carbs, and 4.7 g of fiber.

If you want to use this a snack serve it with a dip made from yogurt for a protein source.

Try your own seasonings. I am going to try to duplicate some of my favorite chip flavors. Let me know what new flavor sensations you come up with!
