Sweet Potato Chips

A very British problem is time.

It has indeed been January for 5 years now.

So with the purse clamped shut I am on a cost saving slide to the end of the month and today it was sweet potato fries , which I though would be difficult but actually it wasn't that difficult.


3 Potatoes will be enough for 4 depending on size of the sweet potato

1 Tea spoon of sweet paprika

salt and pepper seasonings( I used Maldon smoked salt which I adore )

1 Table spoon of Olive oil.


Preheat the oven to 200 c

Wash and scrub the sweet potatoes

Washing and drying sweet potato

Leaving the skin on

Dry them lovingly

Place on chopping board and cut in half length ways

Chopping Sweet Potato

Now you could do the same again but I cheated and then sliced diagonally after splitting length ways.

Place in a bowl add the tea spoon of smoked Paprika and the table spoon of oil oil and toss gently , adding your seasonings.

Next put the sweet potato chips onto a baking tray and cook for 40 -45 minutes allowing for your own oven.

Tasty Tuesdays on


  1. My own what.... : )

    What were they like, I can never get them crispy.

    1. Very nice ~ I'd toss them half way through .

    2. I meant your own oven

      Corrected now !!

  2. I can never get them crispy either except coating them in flour but then they take ages to fry, I need one of those frying machines!

  3. I love sweet potato chips - try them with sage too - yummy

  4. Yummy! A super simple recipe too. Anything with few ingredients and few instructions gets my vote.

  5. I love sweet potato chips. I like to add a sprinkle of chili flakes onto mine.

  8. oooh yum! I usually bake sweet potatoes whole, but I'll bet they're even yummier done like this.

  9. I like sweet potato chips too. I like the sound of cooking them with paprika - will try that next time.

  10. I keep meaning to try these, but I haven't got around to it. And now I want some smoked salt too!

  11. Good idea - I tend to go with sweet potato mash but these would be nice for a change!

  12. Lovely, Claire, it's steak for dinner here and I was wondering what to serve it with, now I have found my answer :-).xx

  13. We love sweet potato fries - in fact my OH has pretty much abandoned the normal potato in favour of the sweet potato!
