NO FAT Baked Lays / in (five) MINUTES

THis is one of my favorite snacks when I am DYING for the crunchy goodness of a potato chip. Maybe you're at a BBQ and want to bring a little something to balance out all that other greasiness :)
Fastest snack ever!

My kids love this and people are amazed to see it happen!


I used red potatoes here, but you could use Idaho Potatoes as well.
 Stay tuned for my sweet potato post, they are a little trickier - 
(they have more sugars and are easier to burn.)

1. Use a mandolin slicer to evenly slice into slices. The width is a personal preference. The thicker ones are softer and the thinner ones are crispier. Up to you.

2. Take the tray out microwave. Cover with parchment paper and trim edges to fit. Lay the slices out evenly around the tray. Sprinkle with desired seasonings. I prefer garlic salt. But you can do Garlic, Paprika, Chili Powder, Splash of Vinegar and Salt, Cinnamon/sugar/salt, Salt and splash of lime! 

3. Place tray in microwave and cook for 5 minutes. Watch closely. If you start to see browning, stop microwave. If you don't see browning. Continue at 30 second intervals until you start to see browned edges. When you do, let sit in microwave for 1 minute. Then bring out and let rest until cool. 
They should crisp as they cool.

And there you go! The tray will be hot if you want to make a second batch. So watch the time closely if you do make another one!
