Potato Chips

Jaime Green first served these when she had us over for dinner and I was so impressed that they were made in the microwave.  They are incredibly tasty and crispy.  We used our mandoline to cut them super thin.  The only downside of the recipe is that they are so tasty you will want a lot of them so your microwave will be running for a long time.

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 potato, sliced paper thin (peel optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Pour the vegetable oil into a plastic bag. Add the potato slices, and shake to coat.
Coat a large dinner plate lightly with oil or cooking spray. Arrange potato slices in a single layer on the dish.
Cook in the microwave for 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned (important- if not browned, they will not become crisp). Times will vary depending on the power of your microwave. Remove chips from plate, and toss with salt (or other seasonings). Let cool. Repeat process with the remaining potato slices. You will not need to keep oiling the plate.

Mmmmm...Just made this. Took about 5 rounds with our large russet potato at about 5 minutes per round.

But worth it!
