My friend Natasha first made this for us, and we loved 'em so much that I got the cookbook. Well, not JUST for that reason, but... ;)
Sweet Potato Dollars
(based on recipe in Nourishing Traditions, by Sally Fallon)
-- 3-4 sweet potatoes
-- 3 T melted butter (just stick it in the oven while you're preheating it, and while you're dealing w/ the potatoes)
-- 3 T extra-virgin olive oil
-- sea salt
Preheat oven to 350.
Peel the potatoes & slice crosswise into 1/4" wide "dollars." You may need to cut the middle piece the other way-- shape doesn't matter so much as thickness. Brush 2 cookie sheets with mixture of olive oil & butter. Arrange the dollars in a single layer and brush with remaining butter & oil. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt. Bake @ 350 for about 45 min. (Watch for burning on the thinnest pieces.)
Enjoy!!! The combination of salty & sweet is always a favorite for me! Now I just need to learn to make BBQ chips at home...
Tip: if you want to make a small trial run batch, just use 1 potato and 1 T each of butter & oil. It should fit nicely on 1 cookie sheet.
