Microwave Potato Chips

This is a fun recipe, but it is time consuming. You can only put so many chips in the microwave at the same time, or they will take forever to cook. Also make sure that your rounds are cut the same thickness, if not some will be over cooked, and some will be under cook. This recipe is great, but it take a long time to make enough for a family to eat.
Ingredients:
  • 3-4 medium potatoes
  • No stick cooking spray
  • Season Salt, or you choice of seasoning

Directions:
  1. Scrub potatoes and cut into 1/16-in.-thick slices.
  2. Spray the slices on both sides with no stick cooking spray and lightly sprinkle season salt.
  3. Arrange on a microwave safe plate, or the plate inside your microwave (do not overlap).
  4. Microwave on high for 3 minutes; turn and microwave 3 minutes longer or until chips are dry and brittle. If you have a turning tray in your microwave then cook for 6 minutes total without flipping the chips
  5. Repeat with remaining potatoes, oil and seasonings.
  6. Let chips cool for at least 1 minute before serving.

Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits-Top Secret Version

This is a good recipe, but my biscuits seemed to turn out a little dry. They didn’t want to get done in the middle, then the outside seemed too done. Next time I plan on making them smaller so they will cook a little more evenly. The flavor is excellent.

Ingredients

Brush on top

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Combine Bisquick and cold butter. Don’t combine too thoroughly. There should be small chunks of butter about the size of peas.
  3. Add cheddar, milk and 1/4 tsp garlic.
  4. Mix by hand until combined, but don’t over mix.
  5. Drop 9 equal portions onto greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until tops are light brown.
  7. Melt 2 tbsp butter in a bowl. Stir in 1/2 tsp garlic powder and parsley flakes.
  8. Use a pastry brush to spread garlic butter over tops of biscuits.
