A match made in heaven, no?
Though I love sweet potatoes, I've never been a fan of the classic brown sugar, marshmallow, and butter combinations. Honestly, the thought of marshmallows and sweet potatoes just makes me want to puke.
But cinnamon, oh cinnamon, well that's a different story. I absolutely adore cinnamon and sweet potatoes together. Whether it's sweet, savory, or something in the middle, it disappears into my belly right away.
Last weekend I had some free time and a bunch of sweet potatoes. Insert sweet potato chips.
I didn't want plain old sweet potato chips, though. Nope, I wanted something special. So I added cinnamon.
And can I just say: YUM.
This cinnamon added just the right of sweetness to the already sweet sweet potato, and the sprinkle of salt I also added balanced out everything with just a touch of savoury.
Perfection in a chip.
Cinnamon Sweet Potato Chips
- 2 sweet potatoes, washed and dried
- 1-2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 tsp salt per baking sheet
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon per baking sheet
Preheat oven to 300 F. Slice potatoes thinly with a mandolin slicer or a knife. I used a mandolin slicer. Grease 2-3 baking sheets. Lay potato slices in a single layer on baking sheets. Drizzle with just a bit of oilve oil. Flip over slices so that both sides are thinly coated in oil. Sprinkle with cinnamon and salt (1/4 tsp of each for every baking sheet). Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour, flipping chips over every 20 minutes or so. Take chips out while they're still a bit chewy, they will harden up with time. Store in an airtight container.
