    Sweet Potato Sticks

    2 medium sweet potatoes
    3 egg whites
    1/2 tsp salt (optional)
    1/8 tsp pepper (optional)
    Cooking spray

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees, spray 2 baking sheets with cooking spray until well coated.

    Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them in half crosswise (this makes them a little easier to handle). Cut each half into slices no thicker than 1/4 inch. Stack two or three slices at a time and cut strips no wider than 1/4 inch.

    In a medium sized bowl, beat the egg whites with a fork or a whisk for about a minute until they are frothy.

    Place the potato strips into the bowl and gently toss them with your fingers to coat the egg whites.

    Using your fingers, pull the potato strips out of the egg whites - a few at a time - and lay them on the baking sheets in a single layer. The potatoes should not touch each other. (Wash your hands immediately after this step)

    Bake the potatoes for 30-35 minutes, checking them after 15 minutes to make sure they're browning on the bottom but are not turning completely brown.

    Remove the baking sheets from the oven and sprinkle the potato chips with salt and pepper (if desired). Use a spatula to remove the chips from the baking sheets (you may need to use a bit of force, but most of the chips should remain intact.)
