Sweety Baked Potatey Chips

Well, I’ve always had a desire to make my own potato chips. I mean, how fun is that! Well, it makes me happy anyway. Plus, baking your own potato chips is an excellent way to keep the healthier…plus if you have a few hours to kill…or if you are stranded in your house with a potato and an oven…or if you are too cheap to pay for a 25 cent bag of potato chips. These are all excellent reasons why you would want to make these little circles of delight.

So, go on now.

Sweety Baked Potatey Chips
Items Needed:
One large Russet Baking Potato
One large Yam (aka Sweet Potato)
Olive Oil
Parmesan Cheese
Black Pepper
Garlic Salt
Brown Sugar
1. Wash and peel the potatoes. Slice in very thin with a knife or a mandoline slicer. (Be careful, I almost cut one of my fingers off.)
2. Grease two cookie sheets with Pam spray. Place slices on sheets, not overlapping each other.
3. Sprinkle with olive oil, covering fully.
4. Top Russet potatoes with oregano, black pepper, parmesan cheese, and garlic salt.
5. Top Sweet potatoes with brown sugar.
6. Bake in a 375* oven for 20-30 minutes, or until crispy.
* Be careful with the olive oil. I had a little bit of an incident. I kind of didn’t put a cookie sheet under the pans to prevent the oil from falling to the bottom of the oven. So…after a few minutes..olive oil was burning and smoke was spewing out of the oven! Blake (my brother) got so upset at the sound of the fire alarm, that he came into the kitchen and just ripped it off the wall. Yikes….so I’ll remember now for next time.

The parmesan cheese on these puppies made them soooo tasty. Mix and match with your favorite flavors! They are easily adaptable.
Yam Chips! Doesn’t that sound delicious. Well, these were my absolute favorite! The brown sugar made them taste like candy. I think I ate half of the batch! Oh man!
