Day 1- Potato Crisps

First recipe in Giadas Italy cookbook is Potato crisps with Goat Cheese and Olives.
I used white sweet potatoes instead of russet potatoes and gorgonzola cheese instead of the goat cheese.  I also substituted lactose free sour creme for the mascarpone cheese. The fresh taste from the orange zest adds dimensional to this simple appetizer.  I baked the potato chips instead of frying for a healthy version of this appetizer.  So simple, yet so elegant and delicious.  The crisp chips and cream from the cheese spread with the orange zest, adding the salt of the capers and olives; make this an easy go to appetizer.  Delicious!!  (all recipes are available in Giada’s Italy cookbook) Please email me for my variations.  Thank you!!!
