1-ingredient sweet potato chews

I found this online the other day, made a couple modifications to the recipe, and it was such a hit!

Original link: Sweet Potato Dog Chew Recipe - Easy to Make Alternative to Rawhide

Thinly sliced sweet potato (1/4 to 1/3 of an inch)

Lay in a single layer on a silicon baking sheet or parchment paper lined cookie-sheet (no oil)

bake in a 200*F oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours flipping part way

let cool and store in the fridge (should keep for a week or two)

They'll keep Lila occupied for enough time for me to do the laundry

Trying the same method with turkey cutlets today! In the fall I'm going to give it a shot with pie-pumpkin flesh.

Gonna give this a try sometime this week, fingers crossed that Wolfie likes it!
(If he doesn't, I might just eat it all myself. I love sweet potatoes!)

I started making those for Zody this past month, learned a few lessons.

You cannot substitute wax paper for parchment paper. Don't try it, it doesn't work, the potatoes will stick to the wax paper.

If you have a hard time, like I do, getting the potatoes cut thin enough take the thicker slices and cut them like you would french fries just make sure you cut them 1/4 to 1/3 inch thick. I wasted around half a potato before figuring that one out.

The thinner you cut them the chewier they are, but if you get them to thin you end up with potato chips.

Since my dog is small I freeze most of them and take out enough for a few days.

My dogs loved to pumpkin ones, I did them last year. Keep in the fridge because a whole bag of mine molded. You don't want to give them the mold disease. I don't know what the difference is I never had this problem with the sweet potato.

So far so good! I think we'll need to make thicker slices, as he went through half of a smallish one in about 15 minutes. He definitely likes these! I'm using them as a crate training treat. He only gets them in his crate.
