Notes: Ok, I have never made potato chips before, and in case you didn’t know, I get scared of cooking with oil, so I thought about baking them. I only cooked 2 slices because I was sure I was going to mess them up, but they turned out pretty good! I put on too much cayenne, and I folded one of the chips to see how it would cook, and it was fine! Use a slicer to slice them thin like I did, but you can cut them as thick as you like. Also make sure the slices are dry before you butter them. You can add any seasoning you like, and they are yummy! Also you may not use all the butter, but you can never have too much. Next time I will make more than 2!
