I have a weakness. Specifically, one referred to as sweet potato fries.I've had some sweet potatoes sitting on our counter for at least two months. Thankfully, it takes a while before they go bad :) In light of my "cook more" New Year's resolution, I figured it was high time to actually use them. I refuse to own a deep fryer, thus Kyle thought homemade fries wouldn't come close to the "real stuff." So, I tried my hand at chips.
This was the first time we've made them and I must say, it took much longer than anticipated...(but we also need new knives).
Most importantly, the taste = delicious. It will be a new to-go when we have people over, since they are easy to make, and much healthier than bagged chips.
Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees
We washed the taters and cut them into thin slices
After a while we improved our slicing abilities and had much thinner slices
I grabbed some of our favorite seasonings and olive oil; Garlic Salt, Seasoning Salt, Cumin, Black Pepper, Salt
Tossed 1/4 cup of olive oil in a bowl with the slices, and continued to toss as I seasoned the chips. You can use your own discretion as to how seasoned you would like them. A simple web search will turn up countless ways to season them.
Lay them in one layer on a cookie sheet, cook for 12 minutes, flip them over, and cook for another 12.
