2 large sweet potatoes
2 Tablespoons lard (or bacon fat, or fat of choice)
1-2 Tablespoons Pluck All-purpose Seasoning
Preheat oven to 350ºF Convection Bake.
Cut sweet potatoes in half and slice into thin half moons. Toss with melted fat in a large bowl. Sprinkle Pluck to coat well.
Place single layer on a tray. Add more Pluck (if desired), and place in oven to bake. Turn over the potatoes with a metal spatula to cook evenly. Your ultimate goal is to dry and roast the potatoes until crispy without burning them. Sweet potatoes burn easily if not checked often.
Cook for about 15-20 minutes.
Remove from oven and serve.
