I've been planning the menu for our 4th of July festivities.
Any great July 4th celebration should include tasty
appetizers & munchies.
Here a few of Pinterest ideas I want to make.
Baked Sweet Potato Chips
(click picture for Pinterest source)
5 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced thin (about ⅛ inch thick)
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon cumin powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/4 cup canola oil
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Combine all seasonings with oil in a large bowl.
Add sliced sweet potatoes tossing to coat the potatoes well.
Divide sweet potatoes between 2 rimmed baking sheets,
arranging them in a single layer.
Bake, flipping once, until centers are soft and edges are crisp, 22 to 24 minutes.
Sprinkle with additional salt if desired and serve.
slice yellow squash thin, salt, bake @ 200 for 2-3 hours
Now, for all the traditional chip eaters in my family
I will also serve chips & dip.
Everyone likes sour cream with onion soup mix.
I will also make this dip that is Pinterest inspired.
I made it for last Sunday's cookout.
Protein Ranch Dressing/Dip
1 Cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese
3-4 tsp. Buttermilk Ranch Dressing mix
1/4 C. milk or water
I added about 3 tablespoons of milk to make it thicker for dipping
Add ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.
(About 3 min.)
It's great for dipping veggies!
