Italian Avocado Fries Recipe



2 large avocados, cut into 6-8 slices lengthwise (for each avocado)
canola oil for frying
2 cups of panko Italian  flavored breadcrumbs
1 egg, beaten
1 cup of flour seasoned with 1/4 teaspoon each, cayenne pepper, black pepper, garlic powder, oregano, basil, parsley, salt and grated parmesan cheese.

Separate flour, egg and  panko Italian breadcrumbs into three bowls.Using a fryer or deep wok style pan,  pour in enough oil for frying and turn  the range to medium heat.

Take one slice of avocado, and coat it in the egg mixture. Then coat it in the flour mixture and then the breadcrumb mixture. it again in the egg, flour and then breadcrumb mixture. Put the avocado piece in once the oil is hot.

Cook avocado until the breadcrumb turns golden brown. These will not take long to cook around 30 seconds on each side, make sure you turn them for even cooking.


Repeat with remaining avocado slices. Serve with fresh salsa to dip in.

Note: I have baked these as well for healthier version. Place on parchment paper and only drizzle with olive oil lightly. Bake at 400 degrees until browned turning once with a spatula.
