Yummy Sweet Potato recipe

Howdy! So I know Thanksgiving is in less than a week and HEY, Kenya has real sweet potatoes! Always something to be thankful for! :) I found this amazing recipe that could be a fun twist to the original sweet potato casserole...or a great addition! I made it last night with my neighbors and they loved it.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries (Adapted from Martha Stewart).

As many sweet potatoes as you want to make
2 egg whites
Chili powder

{How to make it}
Preheat oven to about 375
-Cut sweet potatoes in half, then slice to look like french fries (keep skin on)
-Put in micro-wave safe dish and microwave for 2 mins, stir and 2 mins more
-Mix egg whites with chili-powder (you can make as spicy or not as you want)
-Oil cookie sheet with olive oil
-Toss sweet potatoes in shifts into egg mixture, lift out with fork and let extra egg white drip
-Lay on cookie pan till finished with all "fries"
-drizzle honey all over (yum)
-sprinkle with a little bit of salt
-bake till soft on the inside and crispy on the outside! :)

If you want to make it more like the sweet-potato casserole, make up some "dip" to dip the fries in using marshmallow Fluff (yeah momma moose!) and chopped pecans with some brown sugar!

They are pretty fabulous, not gonna lie! :) I might be making them again soon... at least while real sweet potatoes last in Kenya!
