I haven't tried this exact recipe, but I've made "potato chips" out of regular potatoes & also sweet potatoes a lot. The recipe called for similar steps, except I just lay the thin slices on a greased baking sheet and spray or baste quickly with olive oil. Then I sprinkle lightly with garlic salt. That's it! The baking temperature I use is much higher...up around 475. All the "chips" aren't done at the same time. After about 10 minutes of the 1st phase of baking a handful come off the sheet about every 3 minutes or so until they are all done. I keep reloading the empty spots on the pan with fresh slices and keep 'em comin'! It is a bit time-consuming, but they are soooo good. Everyone in my family loves them. Every kid's friend or my friend that comes over loves them too. They are delicious, different than the usual snack, and very nutritious. I can't wait to try this new variety. I think the soggy problem comes from a lower oven temp? You need to zap them :) enjoiy!

Awful, terrible, horrible. Soggy and tough - no one liked them! What a terrible thing to do to wonderful root vegetables. I have so many WONDERFUL recipes for these veggies, that I wouldn't bother with this again!

These did not come out at all. Cooked to the time in the recipe, they were soggy and the parsnips were already starting to burn. I left them in longer, watching carefully and still most of them burned. Or got very dark on the outer edges and were still soggy in the middle. Perhaps a lower temperature for a longer time would ensure more even browning? In any case, I would call this a fail.

These did not come out for me. I tried cooking them longer but they stayed soggy. Maybe I did something wrong.

I never ate sweet potatoes or beets, but these remind me of those served at some restaurants! So fabulous! I had to bake them a little longer, and I used the convection setting.
