Drat. I seem to have misplaced my Potato Diet pamphlet, but do
occasionally make the potato puffs it mentioned. Slice washed,
unpeeled potatoes about 1/8" thick. Place directly on the rack of a
toaster oven cranked up to max (450-500?) And watch them. They will
puff a bit and brown. Take them out of the oven. Not exactly 'chips',
but a no-fat snack that's pretty interesting and suitable for dipping.

I find that for baked chips and fries soaking them in water (salted or not) 
for at least several hours and patting them dry seems to make them tastes 
better. I guess it is all the starch removed.

I've seen several foodtv shows making fries and none soaked the spuds
first.  I'm always surprised. I deep fry and have tried with and
without soaking.  Soaking, rinsing and changing the water is by far
the best for me.  Otherwise they are soggy and limp.
