Homemade Potato Chips

Homemade salted and fried potato chips make for a great snack.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Wash then slice the potatoes very thinly. As you slice, drop them into deep, cold water. A mandolin does the best job of this and the slices should be only slightly thicker than regular potato chips.
  2. Bring a deep pan of frying oil to 375 °F (190 °C).
  3. Dry the potatoes thoroughly, then fry for a couple minutes until crisp and golden.
  4. Drain on paper towels and then season generously with salt.
  5. Note: you will need to use a fryer or a pan with enough oil to completely cover each potato slice.

Seriously? this a website for people trying to lose weight. I don't think I need advise on how to fry a potato and I certainly don't see how that could help me in my weight lose endeavor. I see that one serving is 250 calories, but doesn't specify the size of the serving. 1st class. i am hungry and this does not help!

I think this would be ok if it was using another starch that isn't so bad, like a sweet potato.

You are not allowed any kind of potatoes on Atkins induction or OWL. Only in maintenance. It is NOT ATKINS FRIENDLY, sorry!!

I MIGHT consider this if it was jicama...but potatoes...on Atkins induction or OWL...no way!! ...just like everyone else said. I'll pass too!
I would prefer Taro chips. Could dehydrate them, bake them or even fry them in coconut oil.

I think you guys are a bit harsh!! I love potato chips && I believe that cooking them yourself instead of eating a huge bag is better!
Honestly I'm allowed 100 calories for each snack so this one wouldn't work for me at all. This would take up my budget for allowed meal calories. But let me add I would make this for my child he loves chips and would rather have him eat a healthy serving instead of what is on shelves at the store.

What is "a serving"?? Gimme a metric. :)

It says it yields four servings. So roughly 1/2 of a potato. However, I agree that even on the 2500 calorie diet I am on this doesn't seem to be very healthy with 49% fat.
