Sweet Potato Chips (the successful version)

If any of you have been following this blog since I started in in saw my post about the failed sweet potato chips I made.  Well, I finally got around to trying again. 

Also, I'm writing this post as a contribution to Merry Mondays check it out for more quick recipes.

Peel and clean a sweet potato.  Using some kind of peeler, make thin strips of any shape/size. 
My peeler has ridges and looks like this:

(don't I have the most awesome cutting board?)

pour some olive oil over the chips and make sure they all get coated.  Then, throw them in a bag of seasoning.  (I used a gallon-size ziploc bag...I'm sure a smaller one would be fine.  My smaller ones are too small)  For seasoning, I used garlic powder, onion powder, mustard power, basil, and italion seasoning bread crumbs. (It really doesn't take much, I think there was less than a tablespoon of seasoning in the bag).  Shake the bag til all the chips look coated.

Put the chips on a non-stick baking pan.  It's ok to have overlap, it creates a nice blend of crispy chips and softer chips.

(wow, the difference between using and not using the flash on my camera...)

Bake for 5-7 minutes at 450.  You will want to check the chips at 5 minutes, and be very careful if you bake them longer than that.  They can burn very quickly!


  1. We're definitely planning on trying this; we'll get back to you about how it goes!!

  2. yay! As I mentioned above, be very careful about how long they cook! That's the only tricky part...I'm still working on it. Soft chips are better than burned ones in my opinion though!

  3. Lower heat for longer time may work too, I think I tried that once and then got too impatient because they were taking too long to cook!
