Recipe Box, Burgers with Spiralized Onion & Pineapple Salsa & Everything Potato Chips

I’m focusing on using my spiralizer this month and I just discovered the best tip!

If you make one cut from the center out to the edge of the food you want to spiralize,  it produces thin slices like a mandolin!

How did I not know this, not everything has to be a noodle!

This is life changing for me because I’m not the type that should use a mandolin  ๐Ÿค•  ๐Ÿฅ

Potato Chips!!

Onion rings!

And how about this “not your average burger & fries…”

Get this pineapple salsa topped cheeseburger in your life as soon as possible!

Even though most people think Mexican and spicy when salsa is mentioned in the culinary world, it is actually a term used widely in other languages meaning sauce

This pineapple onion salsa is tangy sweet and the perfect compliment to a smokey grilled burger with extra sharp Vermont white cheddar  ๐Ÿ˜‹

While you’ve got the spiralizer out, slice a potato

Look at those lovely paper thin slices!

Toss the potato slices with a little peanut oil {or your preferred oil}

I leave the peel on for extra nutrition, but you can peel it if you prefer

Place the slices on a parchment lined pan in an even layer and sprinkle with Everything Seasoning

I got some at Trader Joe’s, but it’s super easy to make, see my recipe here

Everything seasoning is also available from amazon here

Bake for 15 minutes, then flip or stir them around evenly and return to oven for 10-15 more minutes, watching carefully towards the end

Hit them with a little salt when they’re hot out of the oven if needed {will depend on your seasoning blend}

Baked, not fried!

This dinner was so easy to throw together and we raved about it {between bites} as we were eating

This salsa would be great on chicken, fish, pork, just about anything!

Everything Potato Chips

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Course Appetizer, Side Dish, Snack
Cuisine American
Servings 4


  • 1 large baking potato {russet} washed, peeling is optional
  • 1-2 T peanut vegetable, canola or olive oil
  • 2 T everything bagel seasoning or to taste


  • Slice potato into very thin slices*
  • Toss with oil and place on a parchment lined baking pan in a single even layer. Sprinkle with everything seasoning. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Check and stir/flip slices. Continue to bake for another 10-15 minutes, checking often and removing done pieces as needed. Be careful not to burn near end of cooking time.
  • If you want to make more servings increase the number of pans, potatoes must bake in a single layer to cook properly. Potatoes will crisp up further as they cool.


*if using spiralizer, cut off potato ends and stand vertically on cutting board. Cut through potato from center to outer edge with a downward motion. Now cut potato into slices with blade slicer on the spiralizer

  2. I used to have my students make these potato chips, and we dusted them with parmesan cheese – they were always a hit (and a blessing when no one sliced the tip of their finger!)
