Sweet Potato Chips

Here’s fun way to use up that extra sweet potato – sweet potato chips.  It couldn’t be simpler.  What a great idea for a Thanksgiving nibble.  Just wash the sweet potatoes well, then slice them thinly. Toss with a little olive oil and bake.  Instead of seasoning with plain salt, I sprinkle them with a seasoning blend. (I’ve included the recipe below.)  The baking time really varies with the thickness of the chips- so keep an eye out!  I used a mandoline, which made very thin slices. So I checked the chips every 5 minutes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sweet Potato Chips (from Martha Stewart)

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed well
  • 1 Tblsp olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Slice the sweet potatoes to 1/8 inch slices. (I used a mandoline so my slices were slightly thinner).
  3. Divide the sweet potatoes onto two LIGHTLY sprayed 2 sheet pans.
  4. Drizzle the sweet potatoes with the olive oil, toss and spread in a single layer.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes and toss the potatoes. Bake for 10 minutes more or until chips are crisp. (Watch them closely!)
  6. Sprinkle with sweet potato seasoning.
