    Note: Instead of using fresh sweet potatoes. I used frozen and they worked great. Follow heating directions on bag for temperature-all other direction are the same. Use frozen stick type or waffle type I liked the waffle type best. Making sure to make enough mixture to accommodate the amount of potato pieces you are using. Next time I will coat them more.
