These make an awesome presentation. Imagine crisp translucent chips with fresh herbs encased in them. They taste as good as they look! Found this in an Idaho potato calendar.

My husband and I are on a rotation calorie diet and we are watching our carbs. I used this with a recipe called mahogany pork chops and a side of fresh green beans. The meal was wonderful. Low in calories...low in carbohydrates and very filling. These wafers were delicious and really solved our craving for potatoes with the meal.
