Vegetable cooking spray, as needed
1/2 pound sweet potatoes (scrubbed, with the peel still on)
1/4 pound red potatoes (scrubbed with the peel still on)
1/4 pound Russet potatoes (scrubbed, with the peel still on)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. Slice all of potatoes thinly (can use a food processor for this step). Pat dry and place cut potato slices in a bowl.
  4. Add oil, salt and pepper to the bowl of potatoes. Toss to coat completely and evenly.
  5. Spread potatoes onto the baking sheet, making sure that they remain on a single layer and are evenly spread.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn all potatoes over. Cook this side for an additional 10 minutes - or until potatoes are crisp and golden brown.
