Crispy Baked Avocado Fries make the perfect appetizer to go along with any dish you’d typically serve fries with. Enjoy them on the side of a Homemade Hamburger or Sloppy Joes. The great thing about avocado recipes like this one is that they make a pretty healthy appetizer. You still get the satisfying, salty taste that you’d get with French Fries, but in this healthy recipe, you get all the vitamins and healthy fatty acids from the avocado. Along with that, Homemade Avocado Fries are cooked in the oven which is a lot better for you than actually frying them.

COOKING TIPS

  • Prep time: For the first step, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. For easy cleanup, you can line your baking sheet with parchment paper. Then slice avocado into ½ inch wedges. Then squeeze fresh lime juice over the avocado slices.
  • Panko crust: Add the eggs, salt, and pepper to a small bowl, and whisk the ingredients together. Then add the flour to a shallow dish and the panko breadcrumbs to another shallow dish. Coat avocado slices in flour, then in the egg mixture so that crumb coating sticks to them. Let excess drip, before finishing the coating off with the panko mixture.
  • Baking time: Place the avocado slices in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Spray over the top with vegetable oil cooking spray, then put it in the oven to bake for 15 minutes until golden brown.

VARIATIONS OF BAKED AVOCADO FRIES

  • Spices: If you want some extra flavor for your fries, or want to switch up the taste to match your entrée, sprinkle some garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, or nutmeg.
  • Spicy Avocado Fries: To add some heat to the fries mix a hint of cayenne pepper or some red pepper flakes in with the panko breadcrumb mixture.
  • Avocado tacos recipe: To make this the perfect side to go with a taco dinner, mix Taco Seasoning into the bread crumbs.

AIR FRYER AVOCADO FRIES

  • To make air fryer avocado fries, start by cutting the avocado into slices and coating them in the panko breadcrumbs, just like you do in the normal recipe.
  • Spray your air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Then place avocado slices in a single layer over the base of the air fryer. You may have to cook them in batches to keep them in a single layer.
  • Air fry at 350 degrees for 3 minutes, then flip the slices and cook for another 3 minutes.
  • When they’re crispy and golden brown, remove the fries and add any remaining slices to the air fryer.

WHAT TO SERVE AVOCADO FRIES WITH

HOW TO STORE

  • Serve: You shouldn’t leave your Baked Avocado Fries out at room temperature for more than 2 hours.
  • Store: Put your leftover fries into a sealable airtight container and put them in the fridge. They’ll last for up to 4 days before they go bad. Put them in the oven for a few minutes to reheat so that they have a chance to crisp up again before enjoying.
  • Freeze: Unfortunately, the crispy bread coating and avocados won’t hold up being frozen and defrosted. So, it’s better just to toss them and make a fresh batch.
