Cheesy Sweet Potato Crisps.
I’ve mentioned it before, but Mr. How Sweet is a huge fan of sweet potatoes.
In fact, they are one of his favorite foods, only coming in behind chicken and steak.
Speaking of chicken, there is a tic-tac-toe playing chicken at the Rivers Casino here in Pittsburgh. Mr. How Sweet has been talking about it for weeks. He wants to see that chicken more than he wants to peep in Megan Fox’s window. He says that he is positive he can beat the chicken at tic-tac-toe. He probably can. After all, he eats so much chicken that he probably thinks just like one.
The most common side dish to Mr. How Sweet’s chicken is a big pile of sweet potato fries. Because, as you know, if he doesn’t have a side his 2-year old tendencies kick in.
He doesn’t get bored of food, but I do. You know I’m always looking for a way to spice things up.
Enter these cheesy, crispy sweet potatoes.
It is only recently that I have learned to love sweet potatoes in a savory manner.
I was always an advocate for ‘sweet’ sweet potatoes – loaded with cinnamon, butter, and marshmallows. Chocolate and bacon work, too.
Little did I know that when seasoned properly with some simple salt and pepper, they were just as delicious. Especially when cheese is involved.
These were a great substitute for fries and actually took about the same amount of time to make.
I whipped up a quick yogurt dipping sauce to bump up the protein, too,
Cheesy Sweet Potato Crisps With Smokey Yogurt Dip
Sweet Potato Crisps
- 1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup romano cheese
- 1 teaspoon rosemary
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Smokey Yogurt Dip
- 1 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
Sweet Potato Crisps
- Preheat oven to 425. Set a wire rack on top of a baking sheet. Spray rack with non-stick spray.
- Grate sweet potatoes (I used a food processor) and squeeze all the moisture from them. I did this for a good 5 minutes – I find it makes them crisp up better in the oven.
- Add sweet potatoes, egg whites, cheese, pepper, and rosemary in a large bowl and mix until combined. Scoop out 1 tablespoon of potato mixture (I used an ice-cream scooper) and set on wire rack. Press as thin as possible. Repeat until potatoes are gone.
- Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until potatoes and dark around the edges and crispy.
- Serve with smokey yogurt dip.
Smokey Yogurt Dip
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Serve as dipping sauce.

I appreciate you so much!
Mr. How Sweet didn’t get any.
He fell into one of those deep, grouchy sleeps the minute he got home from work, and slept through the shredding of the sweet potatoes and the cheesy scent that wafted through the air.
He also slept through me munching away on these. Before I knew it, they were gone.
When he sees this, he isn’t going to be a happy camper.

Tic Tac Toe huh? Talented chicken! Love how crispy and delicious this looks. I love sweet potatoes too. I could eat one every day. But I’ve never added cheese to my crisps while they’re baking…I always think that is reserved for regular white potatoes for some reason? Going to give it a go!
Wow. This is like sweet potato latkes with cheeeeese! I never thought about sweet potatoes having a savory accompaniment before either, but I realise that sometimes sweet potato chips “accidentally” with salt (as with regular chips) is quite tasty too! I love sweet potatoes more than life itself. I guess that’s something Mr How Sweet and I have in common. :D
Thanks for posting my dinner tonight? I only have Japanese sweet potato. Do you think will work the same?
Sure! I don’t see what not. Just really squeeze all the moisture out of them. :)
Wow I really like these, kinda like latkes!!! The yogurt dip sounds like a great addition too!!
These look awesome! I love cheese & potatoes together…can’t wait to make them!!
How do you even think of making something like this? My sweet potato dishes consist of me chopping them up and throwing them in the oven to bake. These look amazing, I will certainly be trying these!
I want those!
Mm, these look delish- and my mind is going crazy with all the different cheeses you could use! My current fav is smoked baby swiss, but I’d need to buy sweet potatoes first, of course….
The yogurt dip sounds good too, though I’d probably add a bit of Liquid Smoke!
I wish Clay liked sweet potatoes!! Actually, I bet he would if he tried them, but he sees the color and immediately gets it in his head that he won’t like the dish. Too bad, because I’ve heard they have a lower glycemic index than regular potatoes….
Oh my, I just saved this recipe and think I need to try this soon! :)
Sweet potatoes are awesome with cheese and actually don’t need too much seasoning to be delicious. This recipe looks like a keeper.
I am making these TONIGHT!!! WOW!
I have a sweet potato on the counter just waiting to be made into something like this! YUM!
These would make the perfect side!

Okay – dumb question. How’d you wring out the moisture?
With a towel!
Okay, these look fantastic, I like sweet potatoes, Both sweet and savory, I will have to give these a try!
I just discovered my love for sweet potatoes. For a long time I hated them because of they sweet versions– it majorly weirded me out. I love me some savory spuds!!
The dip sounds amazing! sweet potatoes are something that we’re still learning to eat. I make them time to time covered with blue cheese :P but my boyfriend doesn’t like blue cheese or sweet potatoes….
Good lord… I’m making these this weekend!

Such a good idea! I’m not a fan of sweet potatoes, but I could eat them if they were really thin and covered in cheese!
Also, a chicken that plays tic tac toe? How does he do it? Does he know how to hold a pen? Haha I kinda wanna see him too!
