Healthy Snack! Oven Dried Potato Chips (Crisps)

Irish blog The Daily Spud brings us this fabulous idea — Oven dried potato crisps (chips to us Yanks).  Salt & Vinegar… mmmm!!  Wouldn’t these be cute served in little paper food baskets?

And not fried, so they are actually a healthy snack… I’m wondering how these would come out in a sweet potato version.

Fond though I am of a proper bag of crisps, I don’t mind telling you that I am more than a little excited by these.

Paper-thin slices of potato, soaked in salt and vinegar, then dried to a crisp in the oven.

Yep, that’s dried, not fried.

I’ll grant you that these are not likely to usurp their fried-in-oil cousins anytime soon, but they do make a good case for themselves as a light and crispy snack in their own right. And they’re positively healthy to boot.

There’s a lot to like.
