I made these homemade star potato chips for my baby’s first birthday last Friday. They are actually oven baked with only minimal oil, so they are suitable for little children to eat. They also look very inviting, so may help if you have a child who is going through a stage of fussy eating.
Homemade Star Potato Chips
- 2 kg large potatoes
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
- Slice the potato into 2 or 3 pieces, depending on the width of your potato. I sliced into 3 pieces as the potatoes that I was using were very thick.
- You need to have the potatoes as wide as the size of your cutter if possible, but they still do work out well even if they are not the complete full star shape. Press the cutter into the potato slice to make the star. Keep the left over potatoes.
- Place all cut stars into the bowl of oil and coat lightly. Too much oil makes them less crispy.
- Place on a lined baking tray and bake in the oven for approx 40 minutes, turning once during cooking.
- Place the remaining chunks of potato into the oil and coat. Spread them onto a lined tray also. As they are a smaller shape, these potato chips will take less time to cook. Add them to the oven about 10 minutes after the potato stars.
- They are always very hot when first out of the oven, so allow a little time for cooling before serving up to little kids.
