Homemade Potato Chips.

Grilling Season’s Here!

I don’t like potato chips. Plain, I mean. If they’re covered in sour cream & onion or salt & vinegar flavoring, then I could munch away until I practically pay someone to remove them from my sight! So, I have no idea why homemade potato chips entered my “dinner brain” and wouldn’t go away until I made them.  These were delicious! For those friends of mine (you know who  you are) worried about cooking in oil/”it’s not good for you”/”why would I promote these as healthy,” CHILLAX!

I promise not to make these more than a few times the whole summer.

The only flavoring on these is a bit of salt.

I believe when a recipe has less ingredients than fingers on a hand, and those ingredients are not made of chemicals, then the result can be called healthy or a healthy alternative.

So there!
