myT Microwaved Sweet Potato & More Chips

Submitted by: TDAB26

Introduction

If you love "chips" this is the recipe for you!

I adapted "Uncle Bill's Microwave Potato Chip" recipe to make sweet potato, white potato, tortilla, veggie, and fruit chips.

But that's just the beginning! I'm still experimenting (and you can too) with other veggies and fruit to create "cheap, fast, easy, healthy fat free, kid friendly, fun to make" chips!

Ingredients

    1 5" Sweet Potato, cleaned (or item of your choice)

    Olive Oil or Cooking Spray
    (Optional, see notes. Nutrition calculated without oil)

Directions

Makes 1 Guilt-free Serving

1. Thinly slice (about 1/8") your potato using a knife, mandolin, or food processor. The key is to make sure slices are about the same thickness.

2. Place slices on a microwave safe tray. (I use a pizza stone.)

3. Microwave 15-20 minutes. Chips are done when they are stiff and completely dry. If your chips are soft microwave longer, if they burn, decrease your time. (Remember cooking times will vary by microwave.)

NOTES: ------------------------------------------------------------------

Additional Batches: When making additional batches each successive batch may require less cooking time, especially if using a dish that holds heat such as a pizza stone.

Flavoring your chips: I've used two techniques successfully. 1) Sprinkle the seasoning directly on the chip before cooking. The moisture from the food will help it adhere. This method keeps the recipe fat free/low fat. 2) Place 1Tbsp EVOO and you seasoning in a bag or covered container, add raw chips, shake to coat chips then cook. This method of course will add fat to your chip.

Adding seasoning after cooking works if using a powder but not if adding granules (salt) especially if you don't use oil.

Test your item first without seasoning. Some things (like sweet potatoes) taste great without any additional seasoning. Others (like white potatoes) are a canvas waiting for your creativity.
