Whoever suggested lining the pan with aluminum foil can go jump in the lake. Terrible idea! The potatoes stick to the foil so you can't even scrape them out. What a waste.

The egg white is what keeps the fries from going limp, giving them their crispy texture, but when I make them, I turn them every five minutes to keep them from sticking. The pan still takes some clean-up, even with the non-stick coating, so I coat it with oil instead of Pam, which seems to help a little.

Fantastic! I was apprehensive about the spicy chili powder with the sweet potatoes but it turned out absolutely delicious! I used 3 tablespoons of egg beaters instead of the 1 egg white. We ate them up! Will definitely make again.

Quick and easy and very tasty. My fries did not get crispy, but they were very good. Thanks for the recipe

Fantastic recipe! I used parchment paper which made clean up easy Instead of mixing seasonings, I used Lawry's Season Salt. They came out great.

love the flavour but I too had a little problem with them sticking. we like them anyway, they do not crisp up as well as regular potato but enough. We enjoyed them and I will make them again, thanks for posting.

I LOVED the flavor of these fries... you do have to be extremely cautious in cooking them... I found that the potatoes didn't burn or even stick, BUT the coating burned... overall great flavor though!! Will definitely cook again!!!!!

Well they are tasty but they didn't crisp at all and stuck to the cookie sheet despite a generous spray of noncooking spray. I've had no luck getting crispy sweet potato fries regardless of the recipe I've used, however. Maybe i'll try parchment paper next time.

I'm trying this for dinner tonight. but the SECRET to fries not sticking on your cookie sheet is PARCHMENT PAPER!!! I just discovered this and it's a miracle. Middle-aged bliss!!!

I followed the recipe as written. I baked them on non stick foil on a sheet pan and had no problem with them sticking. They came out slightly crispy but I didn't expect them to because I have yet found a recipe that the sweet potato fries come out crispy when you bake them in the oven. The flavor was wonderful with a little bit of heat to cut the sweet. I will cayenne to this to spice it up a little more. Made a full cajun meal with blackened catfish and brocolli. Also HAD to add the brown gravy to the fries that elevated them up another notch! Great side for a healthy meal!
