How to make it:
  1. Poke a sweet potato with a fork.

  3. Slice the potato with a sharp knife from one to end, and then gently squeeze out the potato from it's skin into a big mixing bowl.
  4. Allow to cool and then add one egg, brown rice flour, sea salt and any seasoning you prefer.
  5. Mix together with hands and place on a floured board.
  6. As soon as you are able to ball up the dough (takes just a little mixing), break it in half.
  7. Flour your board well and then roll out little strings of dough(imagine a thick pencil.)
  8. Slice into the 'pencil' with a simple knife at half inch intervals.
  9. Warm up a frying pan using olive oil or another compliant oil.

  12. When the pieces are as crispy as your kids like them, it's done!
