Sweet Potato and Parsnip Chips

I hope you all had a nice holiday!   We sure did have fun going home and meeting my new niece and nephew.   Be both babies are so cute and fun to be around.

Now that we are back at home I had a little time to clean up some of those recipes that I cut out of magazines hoping to make but never getting to them.

These Sweet Potato Chips  have been on my "want to try list" for the longest time but I don't have a madolin slicer.   I decided I had the time and went ahead and made the chips anyway because I was curious about how they would turn out.

I took  washed sweet potatoes and parsnips and sliced them as thin as possible.  I put them on a baking sheet and sprinkled them with oil.  I added kosher salt and thyme.  They baked in the oven at 400 degrees for about 25 -30 minutes.   Since my chips were a little thicker they took a little longer to bake.

They tasted very good but they weren't as crispy as I expected. I think that was due to their thickness.
I would make them again and serve them warm as a side dish.
