Hi everyone! It’s Missy, Mel's bulldog. Mel and Betty are knee-deep in inventory management. I have no idea what that means, but it keeps them busy. So I offered to share with you the recipe for my favorite treat. And if you know anything about dogs, we LOVE treats!
I call these sweet potato jerky strips, but I heard Mel talking to her friend Darby, and she called them sweet potato chips. Honestly, I don't care what we call them, I just want to eat ALL of them! They are quick, simple, and delicious!
If you decide to try out the recipe, let us know how they turned out.
Missy's Sweet Potato Jerky Strips
3 large sweet potatoes
Preheat oven to 250° F
Scrub those sweet potatoes. No need to peel.
Cut the potatoes lengthwise into 1/3″ slices, no smaller than 1/4″. Keep in mind, the thinner
the slice, the shorter the cooking time.
Place sliced potatoes on a baking sheet in a single layer.
Bake for about 3 hours. Turning over after 1 ½ hours.
Cool completely on a wire rack. Depending on thickness this could take 30 minutes to 1 hour. As the treats cool, they will harden.
For desired chewiness – Baking 3 hours creates a soft, chewy dog treat. If your pooch prefers crunchy treats, bake for an additional 20-30 minutes.
