Finally...Crispy Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries

After many failed attempts, I have finally mastered crispy sweet potato fries. It was well worth the wait and the solution is super simple. Check it out...

1 lg sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips
1/4 cup olive oil
1 lg egg white
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp coarse salt
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 425°. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil coated with cooking spray.

Mix olive oil and egg white in a medium bowl. Place potato strips in the bowl and coat with oil/egg mixture. Remove strips, one at a time, and place on the baking sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle with salts and spices, turning them over to evenly coat on all sides.

Bake for 30 minutes, turning each individual potato strip every 10 minutes with tongs. Serve warm.

Tip: Leave space between the potato strips. If they are too close they tend to steam, thereby producing soggy fries.
