We LOVE potato chips! We love the crunch, the taste and , like any finger food how much fun the are to eat! We also love chips make with other vegetables like parsnip and turnip. But our favorite chip that is not made with russets is the sweet potato chip. Potato Chips come in baked or fried versions. Most commercial versions are fried in soybean oil and laden with salt. So we tried to produce a chip just as delicious without as much oil by baking them in a mix of olive and canola oil. The result: delicious! We flavored ours with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and cinnamon, they are the best side for a nice panini.
Ingredients ( for 2 LARGE portions)
2 medium sweet potatoes sliced in setting 1 on a mandolin
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp canola oil

salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees, and arrange rack to middle. Meanwhile, toss sweet potatoes with the oils and gently mix with both hands trying not to break the thin potato slices. Place a sheet of aluminum foil on a baking sheet. Sprinkle sheet with salt and pepper. Arrange slices on sheet, not letting overlap or touch. Sprinkle top with more salt and pepper. Place in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or till the sides begin to toast, remove from oven and turn potatoes once with the help of a spatula or cooking tongs. Bake for 3 more minutes and remove from oven. If you like ,sprinkle with rosemary or the spice of your choice. Let cool and enjoy!
