Sweet Potato Chips and OXO giveaway!

Could you use a handy new kitchen tool?  Now is your chance to win one for FREE!
As part of the Blogger Outreach Program, OXO provided me with this Hand-Held Mandoline Slicer for free, and another one for a blog reader to receive! To put this slicer to the test, I made sweet potato chips!
This slicer was so easy to use.  It is a very manageable size and you just simply slide the gauge to change the thickness.   I made chips using the medium and thickest settings.
Medium on the left.  Thickest on the right. 
I sliced through that sweet potato in no time!  So much easier with this Hand-Held slicer!
Sweet Potato Chips
Serves at least 2
Preheat oven to 375.  Line 2 cookie sheets with a Silpat or parchment paper.
1 large sweet potato thinly sliced (made more than enough for Darling Husband and myself) 
oive oil
brown sugar (for a sweet version)
Drizzle sweet potato slices with olive oil.  I placed my slices in a big Ziploc bag.  
For the savory version, toss with salt and pepper, or your favorite fry seasoning.
For the sweet version, toss with brown sugar.
Divide amongst cookie sheets in an even, thin layer.  Bake for 20 minutes, flipping once.
Serve with sloppy joe sliders and you're in business!
Now for the fun stuff!  For a chance to win your very own Hand-Held Mandoline Slicer, all you need to do is comment on this post and tell me what you would like to make with this handy slicer!  Contest will run until Wednesday, May 16, 6pm PST.  This is a great little tool to have on hand.  Will be fun for all the summer veggies coming up!
