Oven Baked Sweet Potato Chips
Sweet potato chips is one of those recipes I just have to do all by myself, if Charlie will let me play with the mandolin. (Yes, there has been an incident…but we’re not talking about that)
To get perfect sweet potato chips, you have to know your oven. Before the big Super Bowl Party, do a small trial run or two of these engaging chiperoos. They crisp up quickly, and if you aren’t careful they will go all brown. But once you decode your oven’s intentions, these are super easy.
Sweet potato chips have subtle sweetness making them a pleasant pairing with spicy Super Bowl food. We like these with just a little salt, but feel free to add different flavorings.
Here in Appalachia, sweet potatoes are a favorite crop to grow. Once planted, and believe me that is a process, they are relatively care-free as long as the deer do not graze them to the nubs.
