RECIPE: Snack: Sweet Potato Discs


For warm and Salty Snack, or even lunch

Preheat oven to 375º

Slice sweet potatoes (from your local farmers market, of course) into discs and put on thin baking pan or pizza pan. I put them on foil to avoid cleaning the pan, but I’m efficient like that. Sometimes I slice one tater, sometimes four if I’m feeling frisky.

You can choose to brush a little Olive Oil on to each disc and lightly salt, but they are delicious naked

BUT MY FAVORITE WAY TO PREPARE THESES LIL’ SLICES OF YUM is to sprinkle a little cheese atop each one (I’ve use goat, blue, park and cheddar—parm and blue probably work the best) OR sprinkle only Turmeric. Try them each way and find your fave.

Bake for 25 minutes depending on if you want them crisp or soft

You can actually leave them in for much longer—I often forget about them, and later find them in my oven.

Bake for now or keep in fridge for later

NOTE: try to slice each disc with similar thickness, if you have some discs thin and others thick, the thicks will be hard and the thins will get burned. And nobody likes to get burned.

    What type of herb options would you reccomend for dressing these up? Rosemary maybe?

      Yes on Rosemary!
      and I’ve also liked Thyme and Basil on it

      My new fave is crumbles blue cheese on top! (instead of olive oil and salt)
