SWEET POTATO AND BACON CHIPS

I had a bit of a craving the other day for potato skins. You know, the oooey, gooey, cheesy kind that you usually eat way too many of. Yah I wanted that in my mouth. But, we’ve been doing really great lately with eating clean, so I nixed the butter and cheese and opted for a much healthier and still very scrumptious cleaner version.
The super secret trick (not really) is letting the bacon cook on top of the chips while in the oven. The potatoes get that lovely bacon flavor and the bacon sticks better on top of the chip. No one likes runaway bacon pieces!

You need to watch the chips because they will burn if in too long. Your times may vary. Play around with it!! 🙂
