Avocado Fries #SundaySupper

So tomorrow is St Patrick’s Day, and so today Sunday Supper is celebrating with everything being a little green. A few weeks ago Chris decided to give me a night off of cooking and made us falafel burgers. I am such a lucky girl. We decided that we wanted to pair his falafel burgers with chips (fries) but after talking about it I decided I wanted to pitch in and make something I have talked about making for ages, avocado fries. Yes I know it was meant to be my night off of cooking, but seriously only having to make a side dish is still like having a night off in my book.

Besides this is one of those side dishes I have talked about for so long but just never got around to doing it. And for someone who loves avocados as much as I do this is a serious crime. I loved everything about these. I didn’t feel they needed a dip at all as they were so full of flavour, moist and yet crispy on the outside. Definitely worth repeating.

Avocado Fries

3 ripe (but not overripe) avocados
(1/2 c.) flour
Salt and black pepper
2 eggs
1 1/2 c.) panko breadcrumbs
1 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Cooking spray
Recipe adapted from Baked In


Preheat oven to 230 C (450 F). Line a baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack on the sheet, or you can use a crisping mesh, which is my favourite method. Set aside. Slice avocados lengthwise into strips and season with salt and pepper.

Dip each avocado slice in a bowl with the flour. Then dredge them through a bowl with the eggs that have been beaten slightly in a separate bowl. In the last bowl, combine the panko, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper and stir to combine. Coat the avocado slices thoroughly with the panko and place on the wire rack.

Lightly spray the avocado fries with a cooking spray.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until panko is lightly browned. Cool for about ten minutes and serve with dipping sauce of choice.
