Who does not love potato chips?! I know that I have a hard time stopping when I start eating them. There’s definite truth behind the quote “no one can eat just one!” Well, these potato chips are so pretty, you almost don’t want to eat them. Until you try just one!

Why I made these Windowpane Potato Chips

Number one reason, it is my favorite way to eat the potato! However, I’ll take a nice plate of mashed potatoes with caramelized onions, bacon, and cheese any day if someone were to offer it to me or even a nice side helping of potato salad (with bacon of course!).

When I was a little girl I was not a potato lover. I will never forget the Christmas we spent at my Aunt Marlene’s and I got caught throwing my potatoes in the garbage can, and missed! Needless to say, I got caught because they didn’t make it in the can, and my Aunt knew I wouldn’t eat them if I could get away with it. I didn’t get away without a good scolding that day though!

Potato Chip FAQ’s

What is the best potato to make potato chips

Why, the Idaho Baking Potato, of course! You can use other types of potatoes, but the baking potato is my number one choice.

Can you make crispy potato chips in the oven?

Yes! That is how I made these Window Pane Potato Chips! The secret to a really crispy chip is to slice them very thin. I do that with the help of a Mandoline.

What can I do if my homemade potato chip becomes soggy?

If you do have leftover chips, you can always reheat them in the microwave. This should help to crisp them up some. However, it is my opinion, you won’t have any of these left over!

How to make Windowpane Potato Chips

Wash, peel and slice your potatoes into very thin slices using a mandoline. Lay your potato slices out on a paper towel to remove any water.

3 potatoes, a potato peeler, and mandolin

Wash your herbs and pat dry with a paper towel.

Lay your potato chips out on parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake in oven. Baked potato chips should be cooked through. They shouldn’t take too long and some of them may brown a little, but that is ok, it won’t make them any less gorgeous!

    Wow, it will be a sin to eat these! Let me know if I got it right – you have to put layers of baking paper both on top and below the chips, then place a heavier pan inside the baking dish, pressing the potatoes. Or you can cook them on directly on the racks? Since there’s a second layer of cooking sheet, the chips won’t fall down I suppose. Your oven has to be strong, though, with even temperature around the chamber. Perhaps a convection oven? I will just experiment, and see what happens!

      I would put a layer of parchment on a sturdy cookie sheet, do the potato chip, spray the tops and then put another layer of parchment on top of that. Place a heavy dish on top of the parchment covered potato chip. Good luck!

    These are gorgeous. I love the idea of making them for Christmas. The herbs inside remind me of a Christmas tree. These would be absolutely gorgeous with a dip for our Christmas party.
