*For Your Sweet Potato:


1 white sweet potato, peeled and sliced thin
Canola oil for frying
Salt, optional

  1. In a large skillet, pour about ½” of oil… heat it at medium-high heat.
  2. While the oil heats up, prep the sweet potato… I peel it using a vegetable peeler because I am not too good peeling using a knife. The sweet potato will start to get dark after being exposed to the air a few seconds. Don’t worry, it’s normal and it will not change the texture or taste of the sweet potato.
  3. After you’ve peeled and sliced the sweet potato and the oil is hot enough… start frying. The sweet potato will take a while to fry because of its moisture content… but with patience, it will cook on the inside and get crispy on the outside. The thinner you slice the potato, the faster they will cook and the crispier it will be. They should be golden brown, without any burned spots.
  4. Drain them onto a plate with paper towel and sprinkle with some salt if you want… I usually do not salt them.
