Crispy Sweet Potato Fries

  • 1 lb sweet potatoes, cut into sticks
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tbsp water
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp coarse salt
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.  Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a shallow bowl, whisk together egg and water.
  3. In another shallow bowl, stir together bread crumbs, parmesan, cayenne, paprika, black pepper, and salt.
  4. Dredge the cut sweet potatoes through the egg mixture.  Allow the excess to drip off, then add to the bread crumb mixture, turning until completely coated.  Place the coated fries in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until fries are browned and crisp.  Serve immediately with Spicy Sour Cream Dip (below).
Spicy Sour Cream Dip
  • ¼ cup light sour cream
  • ¾ tsp hot sauce (I used Frank’s Red Hot Wing sauce)
  • ½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Parsley
 Mix the sour cream, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce until well blended.  Keep chilled until ready to serve.  Sprinkle with parsley just before serving.
