These Baked Salt and Vinegar Chips are made with russet potatoes, soaked in vinegar, and baked to perfection.
My favorite all time snack in the world are salt and vinegar chips - they are easily my guilty pleasure. So I thought, why not bake them? All you will need are 5 russet potatoes, 2 32oz bottles of white distilled vinegar, and salt.
I have always loved salt and vinegar chips. You will need a mandolin for this recipe, because chips need to be as thing as they can be to be able to crisp up. You can cook them in oil, but I wanted to bake them for a healthier recipe. If you happen to have salt and vinegar seasoning, you can definitely use that for a more potent flavor. This recipe only uses vinegar and salt and they crisp up perfectly in the oven.
You'll only need a few simple ingredients to make this. The exact measurements are listed in the recipe card below. Here's an overview of what you'll need:
- Russet potatoes
- White vinegar or apple cider vinegar
See recipe card for quantities.
Start by peeling the potatoes and slicing into VERY thin slices, about ⅛ inch using a very sharp knife or mandoline.
In a large bowl, pour the vinegar in with the chips until they are all submerged. Let them sit for 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Drain the chips and mix in the salt as needed. I used about 1 teaspoon, but you can use more!
Grease the baking sheet and arrange the chips on it. You may use multiple baking sheets.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, turning once, until golden brown and crispy.
Serve with salt and enjoy these Baked Salt and Vinegar Chips.
Hint: Leave the potatoes soaking for longer for a more vinegary taste.
Potatoes: I used russet potatoes for this recipe as they work best for making potto chips.
Vinegar: It is preferable to use white distilled vinegar, although I have used apple cider vinegar which worked perfectly for this as well.
Salt: I like using small kosher salt for this, but sea salt works too.
Cooking is a chance to be creative! Have fun with it and feel free to make your own variation.

Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. Stone bakeware takes longer to heat up than metal pans, and also retain heat for longer, which could make the recipe more watery, or burnt on the outsides.

This will be good in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
These ingredients don't stand up well to freezing.
Soak the chips in vinegar longer for a more vinegary taste.Print
