Sweet Potato Chiiiiiiips

Another faux chip post! Aren't you lucky! Why, yes you are. Tonight you can make these so you can eat them so you can soak up all that Friday night whiskey in your belly. Hey! Did I mention these are oil free?! Hey, did I mention I rode my bike this morning and am still jangling from the adrenalin rush that comes with riding a bike on a six lane street?! BLAHRSHBHABLARGHITY

Sweet Potato Chips

1 - infinity sweet potatoes, scrubbed and dried. NOT PEELED.
Sea salt

Set oven to 400. Using a mandolin, thinly slice your sweet potato. You know, I think I may have sliced mine a wee bit too thinly, as you can tell by some of the browned spots. Which actually didn't offend my allegedly extremely sensitive palate. So I don't like half a jar of olive brine in my martini, OKAY?! I AM NOT SENSITIVE. OKAY?!?!?! ::sobs::

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place a single layer of sweet potato chips on top, and sprinkle liberally with sea salt.

Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven, flip each chip, say that three times fast, and return to oven for one to two minutes. Check back frequently because my first batch was destroyed in literally the last 30 seconds it was in the oven.

Allow to cool so they can crisp up even further and presto, delicious, healthy, oil-free, fry-free chips. And let me just tell you, an entire 5" long sweet potato is only 130 calories. That is a whole mess of chips. Tell THAT to the 10 measley fried potato chips you get in a 140 calorie serving. BOOM

God it's like I'm high off bike riding.
