Avocado Fries

Avocado Fries


They are SO good! Appealingly crunchy on the outside, the avocado warm on the inside. They make a terrific side, snack, appetizer, or even a vegetarian filling for tacos. Sprinkled with a little salt, they are divine.  Be sure to invite friends over, though, or you might eat all of them yourself!

Recipe for Avocado Fries

Makes about 20 pieces

Prep: 10 minutes           Frying: 15 minutes


  • oil for frying
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • About 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 large eggs, beaten with a small splash of water
  • 1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 firm-ripe medium avocados, pitted, peeled

Begin by slicing the avocado in half, then into quarters. Then slice each quarter into 2-3 pieces. This should give you 8-12 pieces per avocado.

In a medium saucepan, heat 1 1/2 in. oil to medium. In a bowl, mix flour with 1/4 tsp. salt in a shallow plate. Put eggs and panko on separate shallow plates. Dip avocado in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in egg, then panko to coat. 

Fry a quarter of avocado slices at a time until deep golden, 30 seconds to a minute. Transfer slices to a plate lined with paper towels. Sprinkle with extra salt to taste.
