French Onion Dip & Potato Chips: Made-over

I came across two recipes on the EatingWell website and previous to this I never knew that you could make potato chips in the microwave?!?! Well apparently you can and I did.

Find the recipe here – but it is as simple as can be – slice, toss with olive oil and salt and microwave. (I love knowing that there are only 3 ingredients involved) My slices took a little longer than the recipe said but they might have been a little thick, but they ended up crispy and crunchy! I can’t wait to make my sweet potato chips in the microwave when I’m short on time.
I also made some French Onion Dip – recipe found here and loosely followed the recipe, it turned out delicious and I think would be a big hit at a BBQ or picnic.  It was reminiscent of the old favorite, but much tastier and sans weird ingredients and preservatives.

    Ooo yea I was really excited when I found out I could make potato chips in the microwave! Though I found they didn't evenly crisp up. The dip sounds delicious!

    FatFree Vegan had microwave potato chips on her site awhile back and I've been making them ever since. Pretty much a similar process minus the olive oil. I love it because I like my chips burnt and you can't find many burnt chips in the chip bags anymore!

    I have a $$ saving idea for you…don't buy Salad Girl salad dressing. Make your own instead! (Ok, secret confession – I totally want to try Salad Girl salad dressings, but they are so dang expensive that I have to walk away every time.)
