Obviously it’s a rare occasion to find a non-baked good recipe on my blog. I’m working on it, guys! My baking skills far surpass my cooking skills, and almost everything I cook is really basic and repetitive (i.e. I make stir fry approximately seven days a week.) Let’s call that something to appreciate– any recipe I post here will probably be extremely simple, and this one is no exception! 🙂
I really love sweet potatoes in all forms, and I really, really love potato chips, so this one is kind of a no-brainer. I typically either season mine with salt or my favorite Cajun seasoning. These are also great if you like your sweet potatoes to stay sweet… Sprinkle a little cinnamon instead!
When I first started making these, I was torturing myself slicing the potato by hand and trying to get them thin enough. I quickly wised up and realized I could get a mandolin slicer really cheap, and cut my slice time down to under a minute! My mom was sweet enough to gift me mine, but they’re fairly cheap, under $20 at Target! Also great for potatoes au gratin, apple chips, potato chips, etc!
You will need:
1 sweet potato
Seasoning of your choice, to taste
Pre-heat your oven to 375. Slice up your sweet potatoes as thin as possible. Place your potato slices in a large bowl. Add enough olive oil to lightly coat the potatoes. You can also use olive oil nonstick spray, it works just as well! The amount you use will vary based on the size of the potato you’ve used, just splash a little in and coat, adding more if necessary 🙂 Season your potatoes to taste. On a prepared cookie sheet (I lined mine with tin foil for easier clean up), place slices in a single layer. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until potatoes are crispy and browned on the edges. If you’ve sliced your chips a little thicker, adjust cooking times accordingly.
Cheap, simple, healthy, and totally delicious– you’ll never have to buy sweet potato chips again!
