    Hello Everyone!
    I watched an episode of "cook yourself slim" the other day and noticed that they made really delicious looking chips by cutting up come potatos into chips. In another bowl they whisked an egg white up and then put the chips and egg white into a bowl and mixed them. Added a tbsp of paprika and then put the chips on a baking tray and cooked them (turning them over twice) for about 25 mins in a hot oven. When they came out they looked liked fried chips.
    Anyone else heard of this? tried this before?

    No they didn't, they just cut them into chips, mixed over the egg white and baked them. I might try them later actually. they did whisk the egg white for a while though!

    When you use an egg white for cooking like this is it still free? Only asking because there are some funny rules, like eating a piece of fruit is free but blending it into a smoothie isnt. Em x

    I tried this after watching that programme, personally I didn't think they tasted any better than normal, tho they definitely looked better.
