Additional Comments:
This makes a healthy snack. Using wheat germ enhances the nutritional value of the chips. You can use the same method to make potato chips as well, but the potato has to be pre-cooked. Daddy and J love them :-)

For those who live in Denmark, you can find the "rasp" without E number from Superbest, and the parmesan cheese without E number from Føtex.
