Preheat your oven to 400 degrees f. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or lay on a silpat.To prepare the potato peels, scrub the potato skins very well, then pat dry, or allow to air dry, and then peel.Place just the peels onto your prepared baking sheet and toss the peels with oil and seasonings until thoroughly coated. (Use your leftover potato for another use of course.) Roast peels for 15-20 minutes, stirring halfway in between roasting time.Keep and eye on them and remove from the oven once they’re crisp and golden or done to your liking.Allow them to cool a bit, then enjoy! You can place them in a clean jar and save them for later.You can eat your chips right off the baking sheet, or save them in a jar for later.
Crispy Baked Potato Peel Chips
We just enjoyed a few batches of these dipped into homemade Tzatziki sauce and low sugar ketchup(you should definitely do the same!)
My grandmother used to make these and all of us grandkids would go crazy for them!
Next time you’re peeling your potatoes to make something, consider saving the peels to make you some of these crispy chips!
