Delicious on their own, these smoky, slightly sweet fries are downright dangerous when dipped into a zesty spin on fry sauce, a ketchup-and-mayonnaise-based condiment popular in Utah, Idaho, and the Pacific Northwest.
Tossing sweet potatoes with egg whites before baking ensures that they come out with a nicely browned coating. They won’t get fully crisp, as a regular potato would, but they’ll have a satisfying texture.

this recipe seemed intriguing. i instead fried the swee tpotatos in strips in a electric frying pan i then drained them and shake seasoned them with paprika, garlic powder, parsley, salt, pepper and a little cummin. i used a bottled fry sauce to drizzle over the frys. WOW..absolutly delicious! like popcorn is made for movies this was delicious.
I heated the pan in the oven for about 10 minutes before spraying with oil, heavily, and adding the potatoes. It definitely takes two large pans for this amount of potatoes. My potatoes were nicely crisp and were not a sticky mess. I've tried it with oil before and it did not make the potatoes crisp. Egg whites work much better.
