Tony Chechere's Baked Potato Chips

I've invented Baked Potato Chips!!!

Preheat oven to 450
Yukon Gold Potatoes sliced on the mandarin slicer, one click less than 1/8" thickness.
Aluminum Foil on cookie sheet, shiny side up (for easy clean up).
Tablespoon of Olive Oil for Roasting spread around on Aluminum Foil.
Lay out chips one thick butting against one another.
Sprinkle Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning on them.
Bake for 10-12 minutes (watch 'em for your version of done)

Peel them off and watch eat immediately (they cool VERY quickly). On my cookie sheet, I could get about 250 calories (2.5 potatos) worth.

Also tried some just with Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Multi-corn Peppers, Tony Chachere's version was better, but Duke was happy to get a couple of the non-spicy ones.
