Best invention ever!!!! Okay, that might be a SLIGHT exaggeration, but I’m not sure…. because I LOVE MY SILPATS!! I am so happy that I read about them when I was learning how to make sweet potato chips in the oven. Before I found out about silpats, I was using parchment paper.
Now, that I have silpats, making my homemade potato chips is so much easier. I also use them for pretty much all my baking needs. NOTHING sticks to the things! they are great!
Homemade Sweet Potato chips
1 potato or sweet potato
a little olive oil in a bowl or sprayer (if you have one)
cut up your potato with your mandolin slicer. get them as thin as possible. put them on your silpat-lined baking sheet. spray or brush olive oil on them and then put some salt on them. bake at 300 for about 20-30 minutes.
Keep a close eye on them, since they can burn quickly!
