These Baked Sweet Potato Chips are baked not fried and make a healthy addition to burgers, sandwiches and more!
This past weekend our kids thought it was the middle of the summer and for Michigan that’s remarkable. They went swimming (more like waded) in our lake practically all day Saturday. Mind you the lake is FRIGID, but it didn’t even phase them one bit! It was however 80 degrees outside so that helped. We ended up hanging out with a family in the neighborhood and ended the day with a bon fire. Quite an overall fantastic day.
Since that day I have been dreaming up all sorts grilling ideas. Since my kids will be outside practically all summer long I figure I better plan to grill a lot. These sweet potato chips would pair great with grilled burgers, chicken or just about anything.
When it comes to making these, make sure to cut them into equal slices. This helps them to all get crispy without burning the edges (which happened to a few of mine). I also did not serve a dip with them since I treated them more like chips than fries. One more tip I have is to serve them immediately. They definitely taste the best fresh out of the oven.
This simple dish is a fantastic simple way to enjoy your vegetables this spring and summer. Sweet potatoes are packed full of beta carotene and an excellent source of fiber. Of course I love to cook with red potatoes too but I especially enjoy the bit of sweetness that comes from sweet potatoes.
Now that grilling season is starting, what’s your favorite recipe on the grill? I can’t wait to start experimenting! Now if only Michigan weather would continue to cooperate and bring back the 80 degree weather! It’s currently in the 40s!
