I love potatoes in all forms: baked sweet potato fries, barbecued potato wedges, mashed potatoes, bacon and potato soup, baked potato chips. What’s not to love? They’re also great for making gluten-free recipes. Potatoes often receive a bad wrap. They are a vegetable remember? It’s what is usually done with them that make them less healthy; fried or loads of butter and cream added. On their own they’re quite nutritious, with one only having:

160 calories, 0.2 grams of fat (yes that’s a zero in front), 37 grams of carbs, 5 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein. I’d say that’s an impressive ratio of nutritional values.

So I encourage you to cook this Roasted Onion and Parmesan Baked Potato Chips recipe and feel good about enjoying them. The onions and spices add a nice bite and pair well with the creamy, pungent, savory flavor of Parmesan cheese. Baking these ensures they are evenly cooked through, then broiling nicely melts the cheese and creates a crisp baked potato chip.

Food Science and Cooking Tips

Dried ground spices become more flavorful when heated, especially in oils like butter or olive oil. Spices are fat-soluble, meaning they will dissolve and the flavor will incorporate into liquid during heating. If you are making a soup, chili or liquid based dish; heat the spices separately first in a little bit of oil, then add to the main dish during cooking. This will create a much richer flavor.

Food Photography Tips

Each and every recipe on Plating Pixels has food photography and food styling tips. I hope home-cooks and food bloggers can learn valuable information from these.

I shot this in natural light at 1/400 sec, f/ 2.0ISO 200 . I enjoy vintage and rustic styles. These baked potatoes have that almost aged look, with crisp shades of golden brown. The neutral gray background of the baking dish provides a great backdrop for this style. It also gives the impression of just being baked, which is an important aspect of this recipe. The image with the spatula scooping up a few pieces creates actions and makes you wish those were for you. Well guess what! They are, go ahead and make these for yourself.
