Spicy Crunchy CRISPY BAKED Sweet Potato Fries

Pin It Now!

Ah... the illusive Sweet Potato Fries.

I have about decided that it is impossible to get the crispy crunch of russet potato fries.  They simply do not have the right consistency.

But, these do come pretty close.  The Panko bread crumb coating does crisp up nicely, adding a crunchy texture to the soft chewy sweet potatoes.  The egg white coating, along with the extra Cajun spices in teh recipe does add an outer more crisp coating of the taters.  Not the firm McDonald's type crispy fry, but a reasonable healthy alternative.

But even better, these have all the taste that you could ask for.  Cajun spices mix and mingle with the natural Earthy sweetness of the potato to create something wonderful.

So... An acceptable alternative to starchy fries but a more than wonderful flavor.  This recipe is a winner!

OK... Here's what I did...

Spicy Crunchy CRISPY BAKED Sweet Potato Fries
