Sweet Tato Crunchies (dog treats)

Hi pals, well with summer almost over I thought it was time to share a new recipe with you, a little something to get you through the dark nights which are fast approaching.  This recipe by @ThriftyJinky is not only quick and easy but also cheap as chips.  We just cooked up a batch and they were very nommy and crispy too, believe me once you pawp you won’t want to stop.

Ingredients:  Sweet Potatoes, Cooking Spray

Start by scrubbing potatoes well.  I leave the skin on, but you could peel them if you like.  Cut into 1/8″ thick slices. 


Spray a microwave-safe dinner plate lightly with cooking spray.  Spread the slices out so they aren’t overlapping.  If you have any thicker slices, put them on the outer edges. 

The next step of actually cooking them will vary greatly depending on the wattage of your microwave oven.  I have a small 600 watt oven so I cook them for 5 minutes on one side.  Flip them over and cook for 5 minutes on the second side.  Flip again – cook 2 minutes.  Flip again – cook 2 minutes.  If your oven is more powerful, I would recommend starting with 3 minutes per side.  Keep flipping and cooking until the slices have started to turn crunchy.  They will continue to crisp up after you remove them from the oven. 
Looking at the treats colour I thought they might make a great Trick or Treat for us doggies for Halloween, especially if you use a pumpkin shape cookie cutter. Treats can be stored in an airtight container for a few days.
