Sweet Potato Chips

Do you ever have those moments where just want something salty, but semi-healthy too? Well Sweet Potato Chips fit the bill for me. I am not saying anyone is losing weight eating these, but I do enjoy the “small” victory of not eating the whole bag of chips !

Cold, snowy days bring out the need for comfort food and baked goods for me. Shoveling the driveway was not my definition of comforting. The oven was calling my name, bake cookies, cake, or try something new. Well, I had a couple of sweet potatoes that needed to be used and decided to try making “chips”. The results were not bad and they even passed “the husband” test. Yes, he liked them, just wish I hadn’t eaten most of them, because now I need the exercise of shoveling the driveway !

Ingredients

  • 2 Large Sweet Potatos washed and thinly sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon of Sea Salt ( Add more if you like )

Toss sweet potato chips in olive oil, lay out on cookie sheet sprinkle sea salt on top. Bake on middle rack in a preheated oven @ 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Flip chips, add a bit more sea salt and bake another 5-10 minutes. Be sure and watch these as they can burn.
