Smoky Sweet Potato Chip Recipe

Crunch. Crunch. Crunch.

I hate to be rude but,

Crunch. Crunch. Crunch.

I'm excited to tell you

Crunch. Crunch. Crunch.

that for this week's #SundaySupper theme of crunchy foods,

Crunch. Crunch. Crunch.

I got to make something I've been wanting to make for a long, long time...

Potato Chips!!!

Not any old potato chips, mind you. Smoky Sweet Potato Chips that I just could NOT stop munching and crunching on!

Crunch. Crunch. Crunch.

See what I mean? LOL

So satisfying! So delicious! So LOUD!!

Yield: Approximately 6 cups          Prep Time:  10 minutes        Fry Time: 20 minutes

3-4 long, slender sweet potatoes that have been peeled
A mandolin (preferred method) for slicing the potatoes, or a chef's knife
1 large bowl of water
paper towels
6 cups peanut oil
1 large slotted spoon
2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon sweet, smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

-Using the mandolin or chef's knife, slice the sweet potatoes, width wise, into extremely thin slices but not so thin that you can see through them.
-After slicing the potatoes, place them in the water making sure to separate each slice.
-Allow the sliced potatoes to sit in the water for a few moments while you prepare a baking sheet with layers of paper towels.
-Arrange the sliced, soaked potato slices evenly and in layers, on paper towels.  *IMPORTANT - Drying the potatoes on the paper towels insures that the hot oil won't spit and sputter while frying the chips.
-Meanwhile, in a large Dutch oven, heat the peanut oil over medium heat until the oil reaches 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
-While waiting for the oil to heat, use a small bowl to mix together the salt, paprika, cinnamon and nutmeg,
-Working in batches and using a slotted spoon, carefully lower some of the sweet potato slices into the hot oil.
-Watch them carefully in the hot oil and turn them occasionally using the slotted spoon until they are slightly browned and crunchy.
-Remove the fried chips from the oil, using the slotted spoon, and place them on paper towels to drain.
-Immediately after the chips are removed from the oil, sprinkle them evenly with the salt mixture and continue frying the remaining potato slices.

Mmmmmm. Crunchy!
