Potato rounds are easy-peasy compliments of one of my favorite kitchen tools that you don’t need but definitely should have: a food processor.
With the option to cut perfectly uniform slices time is saved and everything cooks evenly in the oven (unless your oven is a million years old, like mine, and doesn’t heat evenly so a little pan rotation is in order).
The kids love this side dish referring to them as “potato chips” and when they’re loaded they’re simply referred to as “yummy”.
What busy mama doesn’t want easy-peasy, time saving and kid loving?
