Like so many of us today, I am often short on time and at the end of a long day don't want to spend hours in the kitchen just to whip up something nutritious and delicious. That is what makes sweet potatoes such a great staple to have in my pantry - I can bake, roast, boil, mash or sauté them and add to a variety of culinary dishes! Do you ever crave the crisp of a chip with a hint of savory flavor? Check out these Rosemary Garlic Sweet Potato Crisps! I love how easy they are to create, calling for just 5 ingredients you likely have on hand.
They'll taste like you spent hours in the kitchen, yet you can whip them up in about 30 minutes (with most of that time in the oven)! They make a great complement to your next holiday meal, served as a tasty side dish, or enjoy any old time that crispy, crunchy and savory craving strikes.
2 medium to large sweet potatoes, peeled & sliced
1 & 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. dried rosemary
1-2 Tbsp. fresh parmesan cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper (helps sweet potatoes not to stick and makes clean up a snap!)
Peel and slice sweet potatoes in half lengthwise.
Cut sweet potato into 1/2 moon slices (about 1/4" thick) and place in a medium to large mixing bowl.
Add olive oil and toss to coat well.
Add minced garlic and dried rosemary to cut sweet potatoes, toss to coat well.
Spread sweet potato slices evenly across baking sheet - sprinkle with additional rosemary if needed (to taste).
Place the sheet of potato slices in the oven to bake 25 minutes (edges of potatoes will brown and crisp, for less crispy outer edges, reduce cooking time by 5 minutes). Stir mixture every 10 minutes to ensure even baking and crispness!
Pull baking sheet from the oven and sprinkle potato slices with parmesan cheese, place sheet back in the oven an additional 3-5 minutes to melt and slightly crisp the cheese.
Remove baking sheet from the oven, remove with a spatula and place potatoes on a plate to serve.
Eat and Enjoy!
