  • microwave


  • 1 large russet potato
  • pinch salt (I prefer popcorn salt for these as it's ultra fine grain)


  • Peel the potato & then use a mandolin or food processor to cut it into thin slices.
  • Place the slices in a bowl of water to keep them from browning while you work.
  • Place a piece of parchment paper on a glass/ceramic microwave-safe plate.
  • Spread out potato slices on parchment in a single layer.
  • Sprinkle with salt if desired & microwave on high 3-7 minutes. (this depends on your microwave & thickness of your slices)
  • They are done when crisp & slightly golden. Use caution when removing the plate. It will be VERY HOT.


*Make these in the air fryer - cook at 200 degrees for 20 minutes. Then increase the temp to 400 degrees for another 5-7 minutes.
