Baked Blue Potato Chips (#HH30Days-friendly!)

Who doesn’t love potato chips?  Or at least like them?  I can’t think of anyone I know!   So if you are doing the #HH30Days Challenge, you might be missing that crunchy, salty snack…but no more!  We are making our own chips here!  And it’s so easy, you might want to do this permanently!

Start with those blue potatoes from your bag.  They are so pretty once sliced up!  I love the color, and I tell myself that it makes them taste better because they look better.  Reasonable.

If you have a mandoline, slice the potatoes on there.  If not, just thinly slice them with a sharp knife.

(Not pictured is the handy dandy protector thingy for the mandolin.  Always a bonus when you can use it and keep all five fingers in tact!)

Slice them thinly, then pile them up in a bowl!  Pause to admire that gorgeous color!

Then toss them with 1-2Tbsp olive oil and about 1/2 tsp. salt.

Lay them on a baking sheet in a single layer, baking at 425 for 23-25 minutes.

Mine needed a touch more salt when they finished baking.

They came out crunchy, salty, and delicious!  Enjoy these as a healthier potato chip!

Tell us below what you do with your blue potatoes!
