    Not as good as the "real thing," but pretty passable. Mine was actually probably a little less healthy since I baked pre-made French fries in the oven instead of the sweet potato. - 12/22/08

  • I agree with RUBINIA. I used frozen sweet potato fries instead of making my own.

    It was not bad. Obviously, not as good as the real thing but if I'm ever craving poutine badly this is a good substitute.
