Oven Baked Sweet Potato Crisps #SundaySupper

[ 64 ] October 7, 2012 |

I spend way too much time on Pinterest. Some days I just chuckle my way through humor boards, other days I search out recipes for my fun themed boards.  I recently came across these incredibly crunchy looking sweet potato crisps made by Carrots ‘N’ Cake.  I just knew I had to make them.  This week our host is Pam from The Meltaways, and Pam loves October and all things Orange!   She challenged the Sunday Supper Team to share our favorite Orange Recipe.  Well, hello my lovelies!  These oven baked Sweet Potato Crisps sure are orange!

Sweet Potato Crisps #Recipe www.InTheKitchenWithKP

 

Ingredients
1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled
2 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon  salt
3 Tablespoons cinnamon sugar
2 Tablespoons melted butter

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 425.  Set a wire rack on top of a baking sheet.  Spray rack with non-stick spray.
2. Grate sweet potatoes and squeeze all the moisture. The more water you remove, the crispier the potatoes.
3. Combine sweet potatoes, egg whites, salt, cinnamon sugar, and butter in a large bowl and mix until combined.

4. Scoop out potato mixture with spoon, form into small patty shape, and set on wire rack.  Try and press as thin as possible.  Repeat until potatoes are all on the wire rack.
5.  Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until potatoes and dark around the edges and crispy.

The original recipe called for cheese and rosemary.  I decided to go with the typical topping in our house for sweet potatoes by adding cinnamon sugar.  One of the biggest things I would do differently for this recipe is work out more water of the potatoes.  I thought I squeezed them pretty dry, but after adding the other ingredients, I knew I could have gotten out more water.  The patties were harder to form and very wet.  They took longer to dry and crisp in the oven.  They even started to get a little dark on the edges and I just had to go with it.

Baby and are the sweet potato eaters in the house.  Baby gave the crisps two thumbs up.  The cinnamon and sugar enhanced the natural sweetness of the potato without going over the edge.  For me, I wasn’t completely on board with the texture.  Instead of crispy, the potatoes tasted a little under cooked.  I may try making them in a frying pan next time, because they will be on the menu again for sure.  They are a fun alternative to our usual baked sweet potatoes.

    Mmm…I love potato crisps and a sweet potato version sounds fantastic. Thanks for the tip about getting as much moisture as possible out of the raw potato before baking. The crispier the better!
