It was a Saturday afternoon full of big basketball games. The Hawkeyes were scheduled to host Michigan at 1pm and boy, was I nervous. We had just come off a devastating loss at home against Ohio State four days earlier so this felt like a “must win”. Especially with Michigan being one of two teams running away with the most wins in the conference. With Iowa still sticking around at third I knew these boys had to pull off this win, which I’m glad to say they did and by a lot! They were playing some of their best basketball that day and made beating Michigan look easy.
The Cyclones were scheduled to take on TCU at 3pm, which we were hoping would be an easy game. With Melvin Ejim setting a career high of 48 points and close to 20 rebounds, forever writing his name towards the top of the record books it was a game that didn’t disappoint.
Whenever we watch sporting events I like to have some type of munchies to snack on. My favorite is a huge pile of chicken nachos that Mike makes, but we’ve been trying to stay away from those lately. So this past weekend I decided to take a sweet potato and turn it into a chip coated with our favorite toppings. Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Sweet Potato Chips hit the spot on this college sports day and were able to tide us over until supper. I made these during the game so only took a couple of pictures. Make sure to ask if you have any questions about the process.
Here is what you’ll need on your grocery list:
**This recipe makes enough to serve 2-4 people, depending on if you are using them as a side or as the main dish**
2 medium-sized Sweet Potatoes
1/4 cup Egg Beaters
2 tsp Cinnamon
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
**Optional Topping: Plain Greek Yogurt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Peel skin off both sweet potatoes and slice into thin slices that resemble potato chips.
Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Pour Egg Beaters into a medium-sized bowl and cinnamon and brown sugar into a separate large mixing bowl. Take a handful of sweet potato slices and put them in the egg beaters and move around until all are coated, then pull them out and drop into the large bowl with cinnamon and brown sugar. Do not mix them around until all slices are in the large bowl. Repeat with the next handful of sweet potatoes, coating them in Egg Beaters and then dropping in large mixing bowl. Repeat the process until all potato slices are in bowl with the cinnamon and brown sugar.
Once all potato slices are in the large mixing bowl, use your hands to toss slices around in cinnamon and brown sugar until all are well coated. You will get messy, but I thought it was kind of fun 🙂
Place sweet potato slices flat on baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes
Top with Plain Greek Yogurt and Enjoy!
