Baked, Potato Rounds

I wasn't really sure what to call this recipe.  These are sort of a cross between a potato chip and a french fry. They are baked, they are potatoes, and they are round hence Baked Potato Rounds.  Apparently I am not feeling all that creative this morning but there you go.  But whatever it is called, my family loves this recipe!

You will need: 
3-4 medium potatoes
3 Tablespoons coconut oil
Salt

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  While it is heating scrub your potatoes and cut them into slices.  I used a knife but a mandolin is a great tool for this.  You can peel your potatoes if you want, I don't bother.  (Of course these are potatoes we grew in our own garden... I peel store bought potatoes).
Line a rimmed baking pan with foil.  Then coat the foil with the coconut oil.  With the coconut oil the potatoes both bake and "fry" in the pan.  I love coconut oil!  I may have mentioned that.
 Spread your coconut oil rubbed pan with the potato rounds.  Spread them out fairly evenly.
Salt to taste and pop them in the oven.  After about 20 minutes, flip the potatoes over with a spatula.  Don't be too concerned if you don't get them all flipped.  Cook another 20 minutes or so until they are the consistency you like.
We like them just starting to brown.  The darker brown ones around the edges of the pan in the above picture are crisp like potato chips (but if they are cut thick they are hard to bite into).  The rest of the potatoes are just starting to blister on top giving them a crisp outside and a soft fluffy center much like a french fry.

You can use this same technique for potatoes cut into fry shapes or wedges, they just take longer to cook which is why I like to use the potato rounds.

    Potatoes look wonderful. I have never used Coconut Oil before so will be giving these a try. Hubby likes his wedged potatoes so guess that is what I will be making for him this week.

  5. looks healthier than fried and yummy too :) Haven't used coconut oil but have been seeing/reading so much about it, I am thinking of getting some. This will be the best recipe to try first as the boys love their fries/chips/potatoes!

  14. Great idea to make your own potato chips and with coconut oil - makes them extra special. I use coconut oil on almost anything I put in the oven to brown. Thanks for sharing. Visiting from Real Food Friday Blog Hop & hosting. Have a wonderful healthy day!

  15. These look tasty. I like how you added the coconut oil instead of another type. I'm sure it has a great flavor. I'm stopping by from the Friday Pin Fest. Thanks for linking up.

  16. Hi there! I'm stopping in from Let's Get Real today. I'm a big fan of coconut oil too. I do on occasion make homemade french fries, but they seem to take forever. I bet this would be real quick. I like that they are baked too. Makes it easy to do a big batch all at once.
