My husband thought I should give this recipe five stars, and he's very stingy with ratings! So these must be very good. He ate them as quickly as I cooked them, so I hardly ate any. I think the taste is similar to store-bought potato chips, but these are healthier, cheaper, and customizable. I made the first batch with vegetable oil in a bag as the recipe instructed, but then I tried spraying generously with butter-flavored Pam and they were just as good, so I'm definitely giving up on the oil. I used a mandoline to slice the potatoes (very easy) and put the slices on parchment paper cut to fit the bottom of my microwave. I patted the slices dry with paper towels before spraying with Pam to make sure they cooked properly. The chips were too dry for the salt to stick after they were cooked, so I salted them before cooking. My husband also liked them with garlic pepper. We want to experiment with more flavorings. The first batch took about nine minutes to cook, but as the microwave heated up, the batches took less and less time. The drawbacks of this recipe are that it takes a lot of time to make just a few chips and that the microwave cooking is a bit spotty if you don't use a turntable.
