Every now and then I come across a recipe idea that is just plain brilliant. This recipe for Baked Avocado Fries by Beth at Adventures in Cooking is definitely one.
Baked Avocado Fries
2 medium avocados
@3/4 cup flour
1 tsp sea salt
2 eggs, beaten
Splash of buttermilk
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp cumin
1 1/4 cups panko
Grated Parmesan cheese
Mix flour and salt. Mix eggs, buttermilk and spices.
Cut avocados lengthwise into about 1/2 thick slices. Dredge through flour then egg then panko.
Place coated slices on a pregreased rack set on a cookie sheet. Spray or dab tops with olive oil for even browning.
Bake at 425 degrees(convection) or 450 degrees regular for about 20 minutes.
Sprinkle with sea salt and grated Parmesan while still hot.
Brad and I really enjoyed these. They were crispy outside and buttery rich and soft inside.
Next time I make them I will probably add some additional seasoning-they can take it without losing that fabulous avocado flavor.
This one is definitely a keeper.
