Windowpane sweet potato chips

Small touches of herbs infuse each sweet potato chip with just the right amount of flavor. A great project to do with your kids – let them assemble the chip window panes (but not the slicing!).


  • 1 large sweet potato, scrubbed
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • various small herb leaves (cilantro, thyme tips, dill tips, rosemary leaf slivers, tiny sage are all lovely)
  • olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 deg F.
  2. Slice the potato very, very thinly – using a mandoline is probably easiest (just be careful!). Try to keep the slices in order in which they were sliced, so that they’ll pair up neatly with their neighbor.
  3. Brush the facing sides of each potato chip pair with egg white. Place a small herb leaf in the center of one slice, then cover with a second slice (egg-white-coated sides together). Press firmly to join the slices together. Repeat with the remaining slices and herb leaves.
  4. Place the assembled slices in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush the up-facing side of each slice with a thin film of olive oil, and sprinkle lightly with salt.
  5. Bake for 15-25 minutes. The edges will begin to curl and brown. Remove and allow to cool. (The two slices might separate a bit, but that’s okay – it just adds to the ruffly charm of the chip.)
