Introduction: Microwave Potato Crisps
After seeing the microwave potato chip instructable, I tried making something similar using potato flakes. It came out pretty well. It tastes better than it looks, honest.

Step 1: Materials
- Instant potato flakes
- Olive oil
- Vinegar (optional)
- A microwave-safe plate (I used a 9-inch silicone cake pan)
Step 2: Preparation
The mix I used was:
1/2 cup flakes
1/2 cup water
1 tsp oil
1 tbsp vinegar (optional)
salt to taste
Mix this up and spread it on the dish. You can try using a rubber spatula but, frankly, it's easier to use your hands.
Update: I've also tried chili powder (not bad) and garlic salt (pretty good).
Step 3: Cooking
Microwave until it's crisp and brown. Remove from plate break into pieces.
