My first experiment was this pin: HERE
So basically instead of boiling the eggs you bake them..seems simple enough. Mine are still cooling (which they didn't say to dunk in ice water like you normally would so I am just letting them air cool). I am so impatient and tried them before they were totally cooled..they are actually really good. It totally works! It took about the same time as boiling them but without the mess of water and a pot. Because you put them in a cupcake tin they don't make a mess (as long as they don't break) so clean up is nothing!
Here is a quick pic of how mine came out of the oven:
My second experiment is from this pin: HERE
Now this claims it is better than fries, hmm..we shall see. If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life it would totally be french fries..lol So again I just followed the directions and let me just say that it isn't the easiest thing to thinly slice a potato without going all the way through. Also a few slices were crooked so some of the thin pieces were actually cut off but I just put them back in their spots.
This is mine:
This is my mom's:
They don't look as pretty as the ones in the picture but we shall see how they turn out..So I was cooking them for the time they said, I looked at them and they didn't look that brown so I did 5 min more. Took them out and they were still raw so I put them in for 15 more min. (My potatoes are HUGE so I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not, I didn't think so since they are being sliced thin but I dunno) so after the 15 min I took them out and they still were pretty raw, back into the oven for another 25 min.
Here they are ready to go into the oven:
This is them after the 45 min:
After 1 hour 25 min:
