    I didn't care for the bread coating on these. I'll stick with standard sweet potato fries.

    These are delicious! I found that they baked faster than the recipe suggested. I turned them every 5 minutes and they came out perfectly. I'll make them again.

    These came out perfect. I shortened the cooking time by about 5 min because they were done.

    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.
