Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 potato, sliced paper thin (peel optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt, or to taste

Directions:

Pour the vegetable oil into a plastic bag (a produce bag works well). Add the potato slices, and shake to coat.

Coat a large dinner plate lightly with oil or cooking spray. Arrange potato slices in a single layer on the dish.

Cook in the microwave for 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned (if not browned, they will not become crisp). Times will vary depending on the power of your microwave.

Remove chips from plate, and toss with salt (or other seasonings). Let cool. Repeat process with the remaining potato slices. You will not need to keep oiling the plate.

Does anyone in England know where I can buy a microwave crisp maker? I've tried ebay (ten pounds! I don't think so!), tried Lakeland and Kleeneeze. I am on the Slimming World diet so I'd really like one. Many thanks.

You don't need a crisp maker. Go to recipezaar.com and put "Uncle Bill's Microwave Potato Chip Recipe # 47195" into the search area at the top of the page and directions will come up for making delicious fat-free chips.
Hope this will be a help.

If you don't want to spend the money for a microwave crisp maker, how about just making them in the oven on baking sheets ???

It would actually take much less time for an abundance of crisps and be as fat free as the microwave recipes ...
