Easter has come and gone...

...leaving tons of leftovers in our fridge, lunch and dinner is taken care of for today which gives me some spare time to blog of some fun recipes I have tried recently :)

I'm always interested in adding veggies to my daughter's dinner plate and came across this recipe on the back of a Rice Krispies cereal box for Savoury Sweet Potato fries. She likes the cereal and fries is a favorite too, how about combining the two?

My daughter didn't take to the fries very well but hubby and I couldn't stop ourselves from enjoying each and every one of them and since they were baked and not fried, it didn't leave us with a guilty after taste ;)

Savoury Sweet Potato Sticks

3 medium sweet potatoes (about 750 g/1 1/2 lbs)
3 cups RICE KRISPIES* cereal crushed to 375 mL (1 1/2 cups)
1/4 tsp each: garlic powder onion powder and salt (or seasoning salt)
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
4 egg whites
4 tbsp water


1. Wash sweet potatoes (or peel if desired). Cut lengthwise into 1 cm (1/2-inch) slices. Cut slices into 1 cm (1/2-inch) sticks.

2. In large plate or shallow pan, mix together crushed cereal and seasonings. Place flour on second plate. In medium bowl, beat egg whites and water.

3. Coat potatoes with flour, shaking off excess. Next dip in egg mixture, then coat with cereal mixture. Place in single layer on foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

4. Bake at 200°C (400°F) about 25 minutes or until lightly browned and tender when tested with sharp knife. Serve hot with salsa or roasted garlic mayonnaise if desired.
