Baked Sweet Potato Chips

Seasoned Sweet Potato Chips

I have always wanted a mandoline so I could easily slice things really thin to make my own potato chips or for things like scalloped potatoes. I never wanted to part with the money, however, to buy one. I’ve been looking at them for a long time, though, and reading reviews of various brands. Well . . . I finally broke down and bought one with a Williams-Sonoma gift certificate I received. These chips were the result of the inaugural use of my new mandoline and I didn’t even slice off a finger! They turned out great and are very healthy since only a tablespoon of olive oil is used. I did four baking sheets worth (four medium sized potatoes) and four of us ate every single one!!! I will definitely make these again since they were so easy and delicious!

4 large sweet potatoes, peeled
1 T. olive oil
seasonings of your choice

1. Slice the sweet potatoes to 1/8 inch thickness. I have a mandolin slicer that I use but this can be done with a sharp knife by hand.
2. Place the sweet potato slices in a large zip-loc bag and drizzle with the oil. Shake around in the bag to coat the slices.
3. Line four cookie sheets with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
4. Place the sliced potatoes in a single layer on the cookie sheets and sprinkle with seasonings. Salt and pepper work well. I have a bar-b-q seasoning blend and a maple/spice seasoning blend that I use that are great. Cinnamon and sugar also works well.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes; turn the slices over and bake for another 10 minutes or until crisp. Enjoy!

    I’ve thought about buying a mandolin too. But the slicing a finger off factor is kind of scary. What brand did you buy? The chips look great. Maybe I’ll try slicing sweet potatoes in my food processor for now.

      I bought an OXO and like it a lot. It’s very study and extremely easy to clean. They come with a food gripper to protect your fingers. The gripper works well with large items but doesn’t work at all for small items like carrots. I’m going to try to find a mesh glove that protects your hand. It’s made out of fine metal wire so you can’t cut yourself.
