My first recipe – Sweet Potato Chips

Guys,

My first recipe is a very basic and easy, but oh so tasty play on the world famous chips!

Everyone knows how difficult it can be to not cheat on a diet, how some days you think “oh sod it, one little break won’t hurt.” But I am trying to replace all cheats with a healthy replacement.

Earlier in the week Harry was complaining to me that he was fed up of eating healthy and fancied chips. So here is my way of still being healthy but being able to eat a similar meal with those who aren’t on the Paleo diet, with sweet potato chips.

I started with two sweet potatoes, cutting the ends off and cutting the potatoes into quarters. Then cut each quarter into long strips to make chip-esque shapes. (You can keep the skin on or peel it off – I have tried it both ways and like both, keeping the skin on makes it crispier though,)

I have placed my chips into baking sheets to soak up excess oil and to hold seasonings that fall off – it also keeps the washing up slave (I mean the husband) happy!!

Sprinkle salt, pepper and Rosemary to season according to taste and drizzle with oil as seen below:

Pop into the oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes. Then take out to shake and turn the chips over before adding back into the oven for a further 25 minutes.

This is the final result after 45 minutes. (Check out the yummy venison on the plate!┬áPlease excuse my awful knife skills, it was a Friday night…. Need I say more?)
