Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet Potato Chips

Ok, so it has literally been a month since I have posted….whatttt the heck!?

I apologize my dear friends, my priorities have changed so much this past year.

I adore my little blog here, but with things that are happening in my life, I am finding it hard to to have to time post and share my recipes.

Getting married is really a full time job by itself, not to mention the actual job that I have that I work 8 hours at and then try to get some gym time in and also you know…sleep and renovate my home.

Sheesh.

Who knew?

I still love to cook and I still do a lot, but I just haven’t had time to actually take pictures of it and then make a blog post.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that there is never a shortage of food around me!

I am just amazed at how quickly this year is going already. Like amazed, it has to be because I am so busy and running around and always doing a million things.

Which is probably also why I am so tired all the time! haha

Anyways, I wanted to share this recipe with you for sweet potato chips.

I am obsessed with sweet potatoes. They are delicious!

Did you know that they have beta-carotene just like carrots?! Not all sweet potatoes are orange either, but around me the grocery stores really only carry the orange ones unless I want to go to Whole Paycheck Foods.

This recipe is so easy, it is delicious and it can go with any dish really.

Patrick and I enjoyed these with some poached eggs and spinach last night, but you could enjoy them with a sandwich or a burger. Even on their own if you are needing something to snack on.

I miss all of you and I still keep up to date with all of your posts. Be patient with me as my wedding year is driving me batty! haha

Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 3
Ingredients
  • Cooking spray
  • 2-3 small sweet potatoes, very thinly sliced (about .5lbs)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°
  2. Thinly slice raw sweet potatoes, with the skin, with a mandolin. You want the slices to be as thin as you can possibly make them.
  3. Place the slices into a bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Eyeball this, if a tablespoon looks like it might make the slices too greasy, do not use all of it. I think I ended up using around ¾ tablespoon.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly spray with cooking spray.
  5. Place thin sweet potato slices on the baking sheet so they do not touch and lightly salt and pepper.
  6. Place into the oven and cook for about 20-25 minutes. Keep an eye on these! Since they are so thin, they turn from crispy to burned really quickly.

      Thanks Meagan! Sometimes you need to take a step back and focus on you! Love all the things you have been up to! :-)

  2. You have been missed, Raven!
    These sweet potato chips look great, Raven.

  3. Yum! I know what I’m eating with lunch!! ;)

  4. Hi there love! Glad to see you…whenever you can get on here! I know how life goes though! And these chips look just delicious. Thank you for sharing them.

  5. I’ve always wanted to try making homemade sweet potato chips! Your recipe just convinced me it’s gotta happen… and soon! Now to dream up a delicious dip for them.

  6. These chips look amazing! I love the bagged ones so I can only imagine how tasty yours are!

  7. This looks terrific. I would love to make this and quadruple the batch. I know my family would love it!

  8. Yum I love sweet potato chips! these look great! :D

  9. Nom nom indeed, Raven! These look like they’d disappear pretty fast… and don’t worry at all about being spread a little thin! This is one of the busiest times of your life, and it will all be worth it once you and Patrick are married :)

  10. Those chips look tasty. Purple Sweet potatoes usually require a wetter, slightly more tropical environment which is why you don’t find them much on the mainland unless they are imported. They do grow locally here in Hawaii. While similar to the orange sweet potato, there are also many nutritional differences.

    Best of luck with your wedding.

  11. I would love these… YUM! Now this is a chip I can really get behind. :)

    PS… Working on my guest post for you today. :) Came to double check if you already have my idea on your blog before I do it. :) Can’t wait for you to see it. :)

  12. I love sweet potato chips.. are one of my favorite snacks.
