Spicy BBQ Sweet Potato Crisps

Following on from the success of my honey and black pepper parsnip crisp recipe I created for my Advent Calendar, I decided to experiment more with this super easy snack! There are so many options for delicious flavourings but this is one of my favourites as it is sweet, salty and smokey with a good kick of spice which you can add to taste. All vegetable crisps require a certain amount of time in the oven to crisp up and dry out, so it’s always worth making them in advance ready for a night in and keeping in an air tight container! And they are also the perfect ‘posh’ snack to impress dinner guests with! No one will believe that they are homemade! I took these into work and they were gone within 5 minutes…

One sweet potato makes enough for one to two people as a snack, but I must warn you these are super addictive so you might want to double the ingredients!!

  1. These look fabulous. I never have the patience to cook on low for such a long time – but then my quick cook crisps always burn. Oops! Must try this technique thanks!!
