"I have to admit to not following the recipe exactly - I skipped the seasonings and just used salt, as I was afraid of the flavors contrasting too much with our Reuben sandwiches. But, these are SUPER easy to make and remind me of the sweet potato chips served at one of my favorite restaurants."

"Sweet potato chips are so easy to make, we make them whenever we are doing a family dinner. They are fun to snack on while we wait for dinner to finish cooking, and when dinner is done, we put whatever is left on the table with dinner."
