Hey, here's a winning recipe I tried! It's German Potato Salad, which is basically "potato chips before potato chips existed".
First, you peel six potatoes and cut them into slices that are a fourth of an inch. Basically, the same size as potato chips. Put them in a bowl with 1/4 cup of water, then cook them in the microwave for 10 to 15 minutes.
Then you cover them with a mixture of 1/4 cup vinegar, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon salt. The recipe says to add chopped green onions and chopped bacon, but I don't know how to cook bacon, so I left them out. Toss the food to get it coated with the mixture, and you've got homemade potato chips! With real potatoes.
