Directions:

  1. To make the coating, place all of the coating ingredients in a small dish, and stir to mix well. Set aside.
  2. Scrub the potatoes, dry well, and cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick strips. Place the potatoes in a large bowl. Pour the egg white or egg substitute over the potatoes, and toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle the coating over the potatoes, and toss again to coat.
  3. Coat a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray, and arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the sheet. Make sure that the potato strips aren't touching one another.
  4. Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray, and bake uncovered at 400°F for 15 minutes. Turn the potatoes, and bake for 15 additional minutes, or until nicely browned and tender. Serve hot.
Tips:
  • Variation: To make Crispy Cajun Fries, substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning mixed with 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground paprika for the coating mixture.
