We Tried This TikTok Hack For Making Crisps In Your Microwave, And It ACTUALLY Works

·1-min read

Another day, another TikTok hack to grace your timeline. And this time, it's all about crisps. And you know how we feel about crisps, right? There's NO better snack. Convenient, delicious and super-affordable - the world of crisps is vast. And now, even vaster. Because we've just discovered how to make them at home... in the microwave. Bring on the different flavours (and shapes), we say!

Thanks to TikTok genius, Two Chefs One Knife, this potato hack is about to change your life. So, what are we waiting for? Let's show ya!

To begin with you'll need your potatoes (or single potato, depending on how many crisps you want), which you'll need to slice nice and thinly. Once you're done slicing, soak your potatoes in a bowl of cold water.

Next up, tear a piece of baking paper and place it on the microwave's turntable. Pop the potato slices on the baking paper and season with salt and pepper (and whatever else you fancy. Paprika would be YUM).

Then, all that's left is for you to leave those babies to cook in the microwave. Now, we tried this hack ourselves and left ours in for around 6 minutes (in a 800W microwave). And we can proudly say, they were delicious! So, depending on the wattage of your microwave, keep a close eye on them so that they don't burn.

It's safe to say, our snacking habits have changed forever!
