I’ve been on a sweet potato binge lately. Last night, I made another baked frittata with a sweet potato. (Which I won’t blog about because I swore off the egg recipes for a while!) So when I found this recipe for Sweet Potato Chips, I couldn’t resist. I even bought a mandoline for it.
Sweet Potato Chips (2 servings = 4 points plus)
1 sweet potato
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1. Cut off ends of the sweet potato and slice with a mandoline.
2. Mix the sweet potato, salt, pepper, and olive oil in a bowl.
3. Place in a microwave and cook until crispy, but not browned.
I had a very serious problem with the last step. For some reason, it went right from soggy to burnt. It was so bad I even tried to bake them instead. Same result. The few chips that I was able to eat had a great taste. If I decide to give this another try, I think they will be great with a little brown sugar and cinnamon.
At least my failed attempt isn’t going to waste – Kevin really will eat anything!
