I think auto-correct leads to the best lines. Sometimes I don’t change them simply because I got a laugh out of it and think the other person may too. I made potato chips one night (as I do many nights), “potato” auto-corrected to “pirate” and the name stuck. It is also very fitting for this recipe.
I gave up bread, chips, pretzels, pasta, etc (it is basically left up to my discretion) for lent. While it has been hard, these homemade chips have helped drastically. They are so simple, relativity healthy (aka you make them so you know what is in them), and require no skill, other than the ability to use a mandolin without slicing the top of your finger off (I do not possess that skill).
- 1 large sweet potato (or yam)
- 1/4 t salt
- 1/4 t pepper
- cayenne pepper to taste (hence the pirate)
- Pre heat oven to 425. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Slice potato into 1/4 inch thick with mandolin, or knife
- Toss with salt, pepper, and cayenne
- Place slices on pan without over lapping.
- Cook for 30 minuets until golden brown.
- Let cool and enjoy.
