Potato Chips-Kyla Style

When I had pancreatitis, the dogtor told me I had to be on a low fat diet for the rest of my life. The pancreas processes fat, he said. Restricting me from eating anything does not sit well with me. We did come up with Kyla Chips. You take a sweet potato, peel it and use a mandolin to make thin slices. If you don’t have a mandolin, a guitar might do in a pinch. Put the slices in a 350F (175C) on parchment paper on a tray and put into the oven. After about 10 minutes, turn the slices over and give it 8 more. You’ll get the hang of the time depending on how thin you slice the potato. You use no oil, no seasonings, no salt, no anything. Here’s my Kyla Chip tray

SAM_0595It’s now time to see if they’re good

SAM_0597Well, don’t dally-drop the chip so I can taste it.

SAM_0599Very good. Kyla approved. Kaci loves them also.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella &Roxy

  10. The Help never thinks of making us cool treats – do you think they’d bring me over to live with you on QANTAS?????

  11. Not bad gurl! I’ll take two bags to go….
    Kisses,
    Ruby β™₯

  12. Oh Boy! I like the sound of those. I’ve already pestered Mama to make me some of these. She makes the biscuits that I eat with my dinner so She won’t mind making me some Kyla-Crisps. Yummmmmmmy can’t wait. RooOOooodles!

    • They’re healthy. I’m forced to do the no-fat thing-but you aren’t. If you don’t think about the healthy and just enjoy them, you’ll be fine.

  13. I have no mandolin or guitar – Mrs. Weisenheimer used an egg slicer. Now we have no chips but we will buy a new egg thingy tomorrow and try it again :o)

  14. Happy Yankee Doodle Dandy Day Kyla & Kaci.
    Sweet William The Scot

  15. Oh you are too funny – a guitar instead of a mandolin! Those chips look pretty good!

    • You’ll get used to me and then I’ll change. I won’t be a 10.5 year old curmudgeon for long. I turn 11 at the end of the month and then I’ll really do it right.

  16. mmm yum, sounds good to me!

  17. Reblogged this on Sparhawk Scotties and commented:
    Got Mama to have a go at these – not quite right yet – think the guitar she used was the wrong type. Hey ho! I’ll make sure she keeps trying!

  18. WOW! Those look delicious. And it looks like something my mom might even actually try!!!!

    • Kaci is part Westie (we don’t know how much but she has Westie fur) and she loves them.The problem is Him, He slices things unevenly and we use our judgment about when individual chips come out.

      Unfortunately, Kaci doesn’t share Kenzie’s love of the pool and swimming. I loved my buddy Kenzie and I also love my new white dog. We should have been a trio.

  19. OH BOY!!! Can’t wait to fix these for the peeps! Wonder if can play the mandolin without slicing a nail? I’d hate that.

  20. Gizmo insists I add Kyla Chips into his treat rotation…He loves sweet potatoes and is sure he’ll love these Thank Kyla!
