Award-Winning Dietitian, Ellie Krieger, makes recipes: “So Easy”


Cracked Pepper Potato Chips

I wanted a really good healthy snack the other day.  What could I have?  Well, Award-winning author, colleague and dietitian, Ellie Krieger came to mind.  I recall reading about her “Cracked Pepper potato chips” and so, with that being said--that’s what I had for my snack.

2 large russet potatoes or I used red potatoes (1 3/4 pounds total), sliced into 1/8 “ thick rounds

1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil

1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

Season to taste



Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Toss the potatoes in a large bowl with the oil and pepper until well-coated.  Arrange the potato slices in 1 layer on a baking sheet; use 2 baking sheets, if necessary.  Bake for 20-25 minutes, until chips are crisped and lightly browned.  remove from the oven, season with salt, and cool.

Makes: 4 Servings

Serving size: about 15 chips

  1. Yum, I love easy recipes!! They sell these chops at Trader Joe's and Nick and I eat them all the time. But homemade is ALWAYS best! Thanks for the recipe.

    How's the new dog treating you?!

  2. Gina, thanks for commenting. I agree; homemade is always the best, too. Ellie's book and her recipes are wonderful!

    Thanks for asking about Phineas, too; he is awesome! He does so many things for me, which make life easier for me ( i.e., opening doors, paying cashiers, retrieving the daily newspaper, along with dropped objects, and so much more. I am so blessed to have Phineas in my life.

    Gina, it's so thoughtful of you to think about us; thanks again for asking.

    All the best,
    Anthony :)
