October’s recipe contest and Southern Farmers Market Cookbook winner, Laura Kelley, says to sprinkle these babies with kosher salt while they’re still hot and then, “chow down!”. Congratulations, Laura!

Crispy Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries      (Serves 4)


3 large sweet potatoes  -  cut into thick rectangular fry pieces (skin on or off “whatever”)

3 egg whites

Canned olive oil cooking spray

Kosher salt to taste



Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Whisk the egg whites in a large bowl.

Toss the cut potatoes in the egg whites to coat, shaking off any excess.

Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet.

Spray lightly with the olive oil cooking spray.

Place them in the oven and toss them every 10 minutes until they’re cooked through – roughly 30 minutes total.

Serve hot and freshly salted! .
