Sweet potatoes and red-skinned potatoes are tossed in salt, pepper and oil and baked until crispy. A great weeknight side.


1 large sweet potato (about 1/2 pound), peeled
2 to 3 -- red potatoes (about 1/2 pound), scrubbed with peel on
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Spray large baking sheet with vegetable oil spray.
  2. Slice potatoes very thinly (Use a food processor if you have one).
  3. Place potatoes in bowl; add oil, salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Transfer to baking sheet. Spread out in a single layer.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes; turn potatoes over. Bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes, or until potatoes are slightly crisp and golden brown.
