Reviews for Contest-Winning Sweet Potato Fries
"Very Good - a little different than restaurant style Sweet-Potato fries."
"This is the sweet potato fries recipe I have been searching for!!! I had almost given up on a good homemade sweet potato fry, all the recipes I had made for them always turned out soggy :( These were delicious and perfect amount of crispy on the outside!!! YUMMMMMM"
"I use Panko crumbs and love this recipe for the potatoes - delish!!"
"Easy to make and the Parmesan cheese really adds to the flavor. I cook mine for about 5 minutes less than the recommended time and they're fantastic."
"Next time I want to figure out a way to get the breading to stick a bit better. Great flavors!"
