      I used my food processor to slice the potato real thin, so preparation was a breeze. I tried adding a little vinegar with the seasoning and had a fantastic low-fat snack!

      What an amazing way to make homemade chips! I made this over the weekend when I just had to much on something salty. I used salt, pepper and oregano(!) as my seasonings. I had a little problem while turning the chips over the first time; they kinda stuck to my microwave dish rather stubbornly, and some of them also fused together! Still, they turned out great, if a little odd-shaped :) I'll definitely make this again!

      This was wonderful! I love store-bought sweet potato chips, so I decided to try to make these chips with a sweet potato. They turned out great! Better than store-bought, and much less expensive! Plus, they're a great healthy snack. I didn't have to cook mine quite as long as the recipe suggests--mine began to turn brown during the first of the two 2-minute segments. Just take them out whenever they start to turn brown. You don't want to overcook them! Again, let me just say that these were super, and I'll definitely make them in the future!!
