Avocado Fries

YOU GUYS!

 

Have you seen the California avocado production this year?

It is insane!

I just bought 10 for 10 bucks. It seems like I haven’t been able to do that since the 90’s! I’m sure I was wearing a babydoll dress and had Pearl Jam on in the kitchen while making my guacamole…

Well, long gone are the days of just making guacamole with those avocados. We have made our fair share of recipes using avocado, but this is the first time I’ve actually attempted putting the green gems in the oven!

Say what?

Yep, we are coating them and baking them and dunking them… just like your favorite potato wedge.

 

Halved Avocados

You need to start with fresh, ripe California avocados. They should be firm with just a little bit of give when you press the skin for best results.

 

Halved and peeled avocados

Halve, peel, and remove the pit from the avocados.

 

Sliced and peeled avocados

Slice each half into 5 or 6 wedges.

 

Coat avocados in seasoned flour

Dunk the wedges (I like working in batches) into seasoned flour.

 

Immerse the coated avocados in whisked eggs

Place the wedges onto a greased baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

These fries have the perfect crunch on the outside and creamy goodness on the inside.

We dunked ours in a chipotle ranch sauce and it was perfect! Feel free to use your favorite sauce, or just enjoy them solo!
