Baked Potato Chips with Blue Cheese Dip

I have a confession, I have never met a potato I didn’t like! Maybe it’s from being half Irish on my mother’s side. Who doesn’t like potatoes? I love potato chips, Tuesday, March 14 is National Potato Chip Day. What?! National Potato Chip Day?!!! Yes! This is a day that I can totally get behind!

While potato chips have a bit of a bad rap for being unhealthy, this version is baked in the oven using real potatoes. It’s easy to prepare and you can feel smug knowing that you are supporting National Potato Chip Day in a slightly healthier way. Kids love these baked chips and students, this is an easy recipe for you!

This is a great recipe to keep in your back pocket and whip up when you have friends over. The blue cheese dip is versatile and you can also serve it on crostinis with leftover Flank Steak for appetizers.

  1. Elin, great stuff. I do a very similar chip. Two quick things. A mandoline makes the slicing much easier. Try them with Idaho russet potatoes. The best! Don

    1. Thanks Don, yes, absolutely if you have a mandolin use it for even cuts! Good call on the Idaho russets! Thanks for the tips and reading.
