Potato Peel Chips

4.4 from 8 reviews

Once you make this super easy recipe for potato peel chips you will never toss those peelings out again! Bet you can’t eat just one of these babies.


  • Peelings from two potatoes
  • Two teaspoons olive oil
  • Pinch of sea salt (and you can shake on some black pepper too, if you like!


  1. Preheat oven to 425. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick foil.
  2. Gently toss the peelings with the olive oil. Place in a single layer on the baking sheet, and sprinkle with salt.
  3. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or so, watching carefully through the door to make sure they don’t get too brown. Remove when they are crispy and serve at once.


    • Potato Peels: Ideally from Russet or Idaho potatoes so they are firm enough to stand up to the baking.

    • Olive Oil: Canola oil also works.

    • Salt: We love sea salt for this recipe!
