Directions for potato chips recipe
Peel potatoes; cut in half lengthwise then slice very thin with mandoline, slicer attachment of food processor, or knife. Place slices in a medium bowl and cover with ice water; chill for 1 hour.
Lift from water and drain on paper towels. Heat oil to about 375° in deep fryer or about 1 inch deep in an electric skillet or deep skillet on stovetop. Fry potato slices in one-layer batches for a minute or two, or until golden brown. Lift chips out with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle sweet potato chips with salt before serving.
Sweet Potato Fries
•2 sweet potatoes
•1 tbsp olive oil (plus a little more for brushing the parchment paper)
•1 egg white (optional, but creates crispiness!)
•Sea salt to taste
•Black pepper to taste
•Garlic powder to taste
Pre-heat oven to 450.
IMPORTANT: Put baking sheet in the oven to heat up by itself for 5-10 minutes! This is a necessary step in getting them crispy.
Cut sweet potatoes into thin sticks. Whisk together egg white, olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder in a bowl. Put sliced potatoes in the bowl and coat well with the mixture.
Brush a piece of parchment paper (large enough to cover baking sheet) with olive oil. If you don’t have parchment paper, you can use tin foil, but parchment paper gets them crispier!! Line up potato slices on parchment paper – DO NOT let them touch! Another important element in the crispiness.
Put the parchment paper on top of the already-hot baking sheet. Bake for 10 mins and then flip the fries over with a spatula and bake for another 10 minutes (or until desired crispiness is attained).
Enjoy your accomplishment of creating baked sweet potato fries that are actually crispy! A job well done.
