Not long ago, I saw yet another photo of a food I just HAD to try.
Baked avocado fries.
I mean, I love avocados. I love fries. And Panko was involved. What else could I possibly want???
However, I am not naive.
I am the only person in this house who will eat avocados.
So I chose a night we were having a light dinner (sloppy joes) and decided to treat myself to some avocado fries.
I found on Pinterest fairly closely.
I have yet to figure out how to get pretty avocado wedges, especially when working around that huge pit.
So mine weren't pretty. That and my avocado was very ripe and a little soft.
But I was determined.
2 firm but ripe avocados, cut into "wedges"
1/4 cup white flour
1 tsp kosher salt (I just used sea salt)
1 large egg beaten
1 cup Panko crumbs
Grated Parmesan (optional but not really :)
Dredge the avocado "wedges" in the white flour.
Then dip in the egg.
Next, dip in the Panko crumbs.
Place "fries" on a cooling rack that is resting on a cookie sheet.
Spray the cooling rack with a baking spray.
Spray with olive oil. (I actually forgot and used the baking spray instead)
Bake for 20 minutes at 450.
Sprinkle with Parmesan if desired.
