Crispy Sweet Potato Chips

The yield is more than this, but a mouse (J) at home came and stole it :-)

Makes 3 trays

Preparation & Cook Time: 45 minutes

1. 3 sweet potatoes
2. 2 TBS olive oil (optional)

1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degree celsius.
2. Wash, peel and pat dry sweet potatoes with a fresh kitchen towel.
3. Slice sweet potatoes thinly using a mandolin.
4. In a mixing bowl, toss and mix them well with olive oil (or you can brush them with olive oil after spreading them out on the baking tray).
5. Lay them without overlapping on a baking tray laid with baking paper.
6. Bake for 10 mins. Check after 10 mins. Remove the smaller ones that are done and put the tray back into the oven. 
7. If needed, bake for another 2-5 mins or until golden and crispy, but not brown. Keep an eye to prevent burnt.
8. Remove from oven and serve :-)

Additional Information:
For it to be crispy, it is important that it is very thin and dry. For each sweet potato, I use 2 teaspoons of olive oil. One sweet potato fill one baking tray.

We made this for the first time today. J really loved it. It is very easy and nutritious. If you are making for babies or toddlers, you can also bake it without the olive oil. It is still delicious, though without the shinning oiled look.

I had made potato chips before. Just yesterday, I was thinking if I could use the same method to make sweet potato chips. But a search on the internet turned out zero. We had our FECS day today, and we went to the recently opened West Market in Copenhagen. We tried sweet potato chips for the first time at Laboca restaurant and it tasted very delicious. The chef told us that he made it himself by deep-frying the sweet potato slices himself. We have two packets of sweet potatoes sitting at home, so I thought I will go home and try it, but I will try it in the oven instead.
