Sweet Potato & Yam Chips


Yum. I got this idea from my son's preschool.

Sweet Potato & Yam Chips
2 sweet potatoes, peeled
1 yam, peeled
2 T olive oil
coarse salt

1. Peel sweet potatoes and yam (my four year old son was up to the task). Slice thinly. Place in bowl and coat with oil and salt.
2. Bake 375°, 20 minutes on one side. Flip chips. Bake for an additional 15 minutes.


I used a Cuisinart to slice the potatoes and yam. I suspect a mandolin would make easy work of the slicing. The thinner the chip, the crisper the baking. At my son's school, the chips were sliced with a knife. And I put additional salt on top of the slices before they went into the oven.

Very tasty and easy.
