I am not sure how I feel about the sliders we prepared last night…to be completely honest, I think I was chopped.  I like my hamburgers medium well and all three could have used a couple more minutes on the heat.  However, I do think my flavors were a bit more creative :0) –  Bacon Blue Cheese, Swiss Shallot & Mushroom and Garlic Parsley…and I cleaned the kitchen (bonus points).

Here is what you are about to make: Oven-baked Sweet Potato Chips

To go with the sliders, I decided to make oven-baked sweet potato chips.  I popped them in the oven a couple minutes prior to our 30 minute countdown and they were baked to perfection!

Here is what you will need…

2 – 3 large sweet potatoes, sliced to about 1/8-inch thick
2 – 3 tbsp of olive oil
sea salt, to taste
ground black pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and prepare two baking sheets by lightly spraying  them with cooking spray.

Combine potatoes, olive oil, sea salt and pepper in a large bowl or plastic bag and evenly coat.

place potato rounds on the baking sheets. FYI...cut with a slicing mandolin.

Arrange the potato rounds on the baking sheets, spacing the slices apart.  Pop both sheets in the oven and let them bake for about 30-35 minutes…until the potatoes are crisp and golden brown.

Remove the chips from the baking sheets and place them on a paper-towel to cool.  Sprinkle with salt if you feel necessary!
