Last Tuesday night I took part in the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! #Toast2TV Twitter party. It was a good time all around tweeting with some great people about all things television-related in anticipation of TV’s biggest night. If there is one thing I can always, always chat about at length, it’s television. I’m not a total junkie of course, but I do keep up with a rather lengthy list of shows. My very good friend Renee and I created and write Women’s Eye on Media and we frequently find ourselves having to discuss different topics that we can write about within the media spectrum that does not have something directly to do with television because of our collective tendency to write only about what shows we’re watching and critiquing the shows that aren’t worth watching. These tend to turn into some of our most popular and best posts–of course.
I had a few days notice prior to the night of this Twitter party and to get prepared, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! sent along a coupon for a free product and a few recipe cards for light, delicious snacks that can be enjoyed alone or served at a small get-together.
I made up a batch of Roasted Sweet Potato Chips that were seriously the easiest thing I have ever made. Ever.
You Will Need:
- 2 large sweet potatoes or yams (about 1 lb.), very thinly sliced
- 2 Tbsp. I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! Spread, melted
- Preheat oven to 425°. Spray 2 baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
- Toss potatoes with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! Spread in large bowl; arrange potatoes in single layer on prepared baking sheets. Bake, turning once, 25 minutes or until chips are crisp. Sprinkle lightly with salt, if desired.
See, they are so easy that not even I could mess them up–and I have been known to have the special ability to completely ruin many so-called “easy” dishes. I did, however, add a little something different to our Roasted Sweet Potato Chips. When we make baked sweet potatoes, we usually go the drastically unhealthy route (so it’s probably a good thing that we don’t have them too often) and load them with cinnamon and sugar, butter and mini marshmallows. When making the sweet potato chips, instead of lightly salting them I put just a tiny amount of cinnamon and sugar on them just so you could barely taste it but knew it was there. So good!

These were a great, big, delicious hit and with fall upon us (my favorite time of the whole year!) I will definitely be making them often. Good thing I got a few extra sweet potatoes at the grocery store last time I was there.
I was also sent a set of toast coasters that are really cool. If you don’t look at them too closely, they look incredibly similar to pieces of toast.
