C3 Oven Baked Cave Chips Top 9

This recipe was honored with a FoodBuzz Top 9!

Oven Baked Cave Chips
Finally! A chance to share a recipe or two!! And, this one is yummy, yummy, in my tummy!!! Nothing better than homemade potato chips … especially when they are made in a somewhat healthy way. Best of all, they are easy as can be to make.


2 Russet Potaotes
2 Cups Water
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 Teaspoons Salt
Seasonings to taste


Scrub potatoes well and rinse with cool water. LEAVE THE SKIN ON!
Scrubbing Potatoes

Cut potatoes in half, crosswise. Slice thinly with food processor and slicing disk.
HINT #1: You can use a mandolin, or even a sharp knife, to carefully slice the chips as thinly as possible by hand. But, when someone like the Cave-in-laws give you a food processor for a gift, this is a great recipe to break it out for! Plus, it makes life a whole lot easier!! Be sure to put the flat cut side of the tater down into the processor for more uniform slices.
Slicing Potatoes

Place water and salt into a large bowl and whisk until salt is dissolved. Place potato slices into the saltwater and let sit for 20 minutes. Then, drain well in a colander.
Soaking And Draining Potatoes

When potatoes are completely drained, place back into large bowl, add olive oil, and toss gently until all slices are evenly coated.
Oil Coated Potato Slices

Preheat oven to 450°. Lightly coat two cookie sheets with non-stick spray. Arrange slices in a single layer on the cookie sheets. Place into oven for 12-15 minutes (depending on your oven and altitude).

When chips are golden brown and crispy, remove from oven. Immediately place into a bowl and lightly season to taste, toss gently.
HINT #2: If chips haven’t cooked evenly, remove the browned ones and return the rest to the oven for another couple of minutes until done.
HINT #3: For these, I used Garlic Salt for seasoning. But, you are only limited by your imagination as to what you can use. Dried Italian Herbs, Onion Powder, Parmesan Cheese, Cayenne Pepper, even the cheese seasoning from a box of mac & cheese will work well on these.
Oven-Baked Cave Chips

Serve as a side dish to your favorite sandwich, hamburger, hot dog, or just as a delicious snack. Enjoy!

    These look great. Could you please pass over a few? I do roasted diced potatoes all the time, but never thought about doing potato chips in the oven. I have to try these. The possibilities of what you could sprinkle on top of these is endless.

    I have a feeling these would be a hit in our house, not to mention what a healthy version over fried chips.

    Can’t wait to try these.

  9. As usual fantastic pictures, and the chips? Nice!
