Food brag

I have a SERIOUS love of french onion dip and potato chips. I could easily sit down and finish off an entire tub with a whole bag of chips. Of course I can't do that any longer so I had to improvise.

The potato chips are made sliced super thin with a mandolin slicer and soaked (to get some of the starch out) and then dried between dishtowels. Then I microwave them on a plate for 5 minutes and they get SUPER crispy.

The dip was made with sour cream. Was GOOOOOD and less than 200 calories total.

That looks like a good, tasty substitute, though. Nice job, Krissy!!

You have to let them start to brown or they won't get crunchy but once you get the hang of it they are as crispy and tasty as any bag chip.

Oh, you have to 'pam' the plate too or they will stick fierce. It only needs to be sprayed with the first batch, all the rest will be fine without any extra sprays!

A friend of mine found one of these in the dollar store and swears by it. I haven't been able to find one, but I'll try just putting them on a plate.

(ps; onions are gross and I hate them)

The only problem I see with that is then sticking together as they flop over. Once they crisp together you'r stuck with a mutant thick chip. Interesting idea though.

I use a plain glass plate that I bought in the dollar store.

OMGosh, those look totally yummy! Would certainly cure the crunchy chip cravings! I wonder what that would taste like with sweet potatoes?

It all looks great. I wonder is you could use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I hear that is a good substitution.

I had a friend suggest that earlier to cut calories. I have no doubt it would work great. I needed the calories though. I was too far below my minimum and used this as a snack to pop me over.
