How To: Make Sweet Potato Chips
We've made so many sweet potato dog chews for Basil, and while slaving over the mandoline again for him I thought it was time for a batch of sweet potato treats for us! Not only are they ridiculously easy to make, they taste amazingly fresh hot off the stove top and we know exactly what goes into them.
All you'll need is:
- 2-3 whole sweet potatoes (we use organic)
- Sea salt
- Vegetable oil
- Large saucepan
- Slotted spoon
1. Slice 2-3 whole potatoes with the thinnest setting, using a mandoline to keep everything uniform. If you don't have a mandoline, we won't tell, just try to keep things as thin and even as possible. Why am I wearing a glove? If you have never used a mandolin that sucker is sharp!
2. Fill bottom of large saucepan with vegetable oil and bring to high heat (350 degrees). Add potato slices and fry, stirring frequently for 2 - 3 minutes. Careful to add chips in batches as to not over crowd them.
Serve warm and fresh for best taste, biggest reaction and the most points! The saltiness combined with the savory flavors of the sweet potatoes and cinnamon are unexpected and downright delicious.
Now we can enjoy our own sweet potato human treats right along with Basil, ha.
