Southern Sweet Potato Chips|
Two of the best flavors of the south are combined in this unique
appetizer or snack. The taste of these chips is quite different and
will be sure to cause a few raised eyebrows. The ingredients and
preparation are sure to seem odd, but the taste is out of the world.
1 cup honey roasted peanuts
2 large sweet potatoes
10 tablespoons melted butter
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum
foil and grease well. Peel the sweet potatoes and slice thinly.
Process the peanuts in a food processor fitted with a metal blade
until they are a fine powder. Place the powder on a plate. Place the
butter in a bowl and dip the potatoes into the butter until well
coated. Dip the potatoes in the peanut powder and coat both sides.
Arrange the slices in one layer on the prepared pans. Bake for 12-18
minutes or until the potatoes are tender and lightly browned. Make
sure not to overcook as they will burn easily. Drain on paper towels,
sprinkle with salt if desired and serve warm.
