GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Ingredients

  1. Using a large sharp knife, slice the sweet potato lengthwise down the middle. With a steady hand, make 4-5 thin slices about 1/4"-1/3" thick from the middle of the sweet potato. You can keep the skin or discard. I prefer keeping the skin.
  2. Spray sweet potato slices with cooking spray and season with salt and pepper
