The first thing I thought of when planning out what to share with you today was homemade potato chips. I guess the only reasoning I can think of is the potatoes come straight from the earth. Meh?
I’ve never actually grown potatoes, but I’ve grown potato vines…and if you’ve ever pulled up the roots there’s a little potato (I’m not sure if it’s edible or not) under there!
Okay…back to these chips.
The lightly sweetness of the potatoes combined with the sea salt sprinkled on top, makes for an exceptional snack.
I literally ate sweet potato chips for lunch for two days. It’s a vegetable, right? 😉
Anyway. I hope that your Earth Day is fabulous and you do some good, old fashioned planting today!
Homemade Sweet Potato Chips
- 1-2 sweet potatoes, peeled
- 1/4-1/2 cup olive oil
- course sea salt, to taste
- Preheat the oven to 400°F.
- Using a mandoline, carefully thinly slice the potatoes.
- In a large bowl, toss the potatoes in the olive oil, covering both sides.
- Closely lay the potatoes together on a baking sheet covered in a silpat mat. (The potatoes will shrink in the oven.)
- Sprinkle with the salt.
- Bake for 10 minutes.
- Flip the potatoes over.
- Bake for another 3-10 minutes, watch carefully so they don’t burn.
- Immediately take them off of the baking sheet and onto a cooling rack to cool and dry completely.
- They are best enjoyed immediately, but store in an airtight container.
Servings: 2 cups of chips
P.S. I made some awesome and classic ants on a log for Blissfully Domestic if you’d like to hop over to that post!
See, aren’t they pretty?!?
