Besides needing salt as others have mentioned. This recipe had no taste - possibly cumin and cayenne would help spice it up. I used the egg coat and couldn't get them to crisp up, so would consider using oil instead. Definitely wouldn't make this again.

This was the first time we had tried sweet potato fries. They were pretty good. I also used olive oil instead of the egg white. Since we don't care for very spicy foods, I changed the amounts of the seasonings and did 1 tsp of each one. I added seasoned salt just before baking them. Next time, I think I will try broiling them to get crispier fries.

These were pretty good, I did make some changes though. I added 2 T of brown sugar and a few dashes of cinnamon to contrast the other spices. I also used olive oil instead of egg white, I'm planning on trying the egg white next time. The last thing I did was to salt the fries before putting them into the oven. This is definitely better than my previous recipe and I'll be sticking with this one!

I make these with oil instead of egg whites. It's alot easier.
