Instructions

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 93.3 degrees Celsius. Prepare the baking trays by lining them with parchment paper.

  2. 2

    Scrub the outside of the sweet potato. Cut the sweet potato in half lengthwise and place each flat side of the sweet potato flat side down on the cutting board.

  3. 3

    Slice the sweet potato halves as thinly as possible and place them onto the prepared baking trays. Make sure the potatoes do not touch each other on the sheets.

  4. 4

    Add salt and pepper to season as desired.

  5. 5

    Place the sheets into the preheated oven and bake for between 45 and 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and flip the potatoes over to the other side. Arrange them carefully again, making sure no slices touch each other.

  6. 6

    Bake for between 30 and 40 more minutes. Monitor this baking time and pull the sheets out of the oven when the potatoes are crispy, yet still orange.

  7. 7

    Use the spatula to remove the sweet crisps from the baking trays and place them onto the wire racks to cool. Allow the crisps to cool completely on the racks.

  8. 8

    Store the crisps in the plastic container at room temperature for three days.

Tips and warnings

  • Instead of simply seasoning with salt and pepper, try garlic salt, seasoned salt, onion salt or cinnamon instead.
