So I bought this gigantic white yam the other day. I thought I would attempt to make baked fries or chips with it and get my munchkins to eat it. I didn't try to fool my 4 and 6 year old and trick them into eating it. I told them it was chips made out of a yam. I don't believe you should try to trick your kids to get them to eat their veggies.
First I turned the oven to 450 degrees. I cleaned the yam and sliced it into fairly thin slices to make into chips. I brushed a cookie sheet with butter and laid the yam slices out. I then brushed the top with butter again and then sprinkled them with season salt. I baked them on each side for about 7 minutes until the chips were crispy. I laid them out on paper towels to dry. I couldn't even get my 6 year old to try them and my 4 year old only ate 1. I personally thought they were really good and was the only one that ate them. I really liked the sweet and salty contrast. Maybe I will try this again with a different kind of root veggie or potato another time. Hopefully, I will have better luck.
