National Potato Chip Day

I'm for certain there's a different holiday for each day if the year. Today happens to be National Potato Chip Day as well as Pi Day (3.14...etc etc). In honor of Potato Chip Day, I made my favorite chip alternative last night (a little convoluted, right?) and wanted to pop by and share this very easy process!!

Kale Chips

1 bunch kale (fresh, non-bagged is better)
1 tbsp olive oil
Sea salt

Rinse and dry the kale before cutting into 1-2" pieces (depending on how big you desire your chips to be). Sprinkle with olive oil and use your hands to mix thoroughly. It's tempting to add extra oil, but you really don't need it and doing to will result in soggy chips! Spread on a baking pan and sprinkle with sea salt to taste. Bake @ 400 F for 8-10 minutes until crispy, some edges will start to brown.

Of course, you could also make these Sweet Potato Chips as featured here.

Want to experiment with other types of homemade chips (or fries)? Check out this awesome reference guide.

Now go have some fun in the kitchen and use today as an excuse to make the DIY (Do It Yourself) version!
