Windowpane Potato Chips

I had been perusing the September issue Cooking Light and came across the Windowpane potato chips so decided to make them for dinner instead of my standard mashed potatoes. They were a hit so will be making them again......soon. The best part is they are baked and not deep fried. Try them and I will bet you will be hooked, too!

Windowpane Potato Chips

2 medium baking potatoes
Cooking spray
Assorted fresh herb sprigs (such as dill, chives, and sage)
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Set mandoline on thinnest slicing setting. Cut each potato lengthwise into 28 slices using mandoline. Arrange potato slices in a single layer on several layers of paper towels; cover with additional paper towels, and press lightly. Let stand 5 minutes.

3. Arrange 14 potato slices in a single layer on each of 2 baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Place a small herb sprig on each potato slice; cover with another potato slice. Press gently to adhere. Coat potato stacks with cooking spray. Sprinkle evenly with salt. Working with one sheet at a time, cover potato stacks with parchment paper. Place an empty baking sheet on top of parchment paper; set a cast-iron or heavy ovenproof skillet on second baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 25 minutes.

4. Remove skillet. Remove baking sheets from oven; remove top baking sheet and parchment paper. Remove browned potato chips from pan; place on a wire rack. Turn any unbrowned potato chips over on sheet. Replace parchment paper and top baking sheet; return pan to oven. Replace skillet on top of baking sheet. Bake 5 minutes or until browned. Cool chips on wire racks. Repeat procedure with remaining potatoes. Store chips in an airtight container up to 2 days.

Yield: 7 servings (serving size: 4 chips)

Now those sound wonderful, and very different from what I would normally serve. As soon as saw the herbs, I knew it was something I would make.

Those look great! Very elegant looking potatoes!
Kind of similar to the Tattooed Potatoes that Monique had made on the CF? but yours are thin, I'd love them!

I saw these long ago in a very posh restaurant and wondered how they did it. Thanks for sharing the secret.
