  1. I used this recipe. I live in GA, so no high altitudes. Unfortunately, I used the thinnest slice size on my mandolin ( I only have 2: thick and thin) and I preheated my oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. It was WAYY too hot and half way through, half of my chips burned. :( I turned the oven down to 350 and hope the next batch will look more like the ones in the picture. Also, instead of using chives I used Rosemary and it was delicious on the few chips that turned out alright. I would just suggest a lower cooking temp and to keep an eye on your chips!

      Great info…thanks for sharing! Getting chips to cook to the right texture is REALLY tricky, and often takes a lot of trial and error with different temperatures and methods.
