What you need to make Avocado Fries

  • Avocado – Fresh Avocado is best, even a tiny bit under ripe is ok. Once it’s getting really soft, you should skip the avocado, because it will be too mushy in this recipe.
  • Eggs – two large size eggs should be more than enough for this recipe.
  • Milk – Doesn’t matter what type, it’s incredible with buttermilk, but is just as good with regular 1% or 2% milk. We have not tried any nut milks or anything with this recipe.
  • Worcestershire sauce – Just a few drops is all you need, but if you want a little more flavor, go ahead and add a few more drops.
  • Seasonings – We use red pepper or chili powder, along with black pepper. It is also excellent with Lawry’s Seasoning, Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning or Old Bay Seasoning.
  • Flour – All purpose flour works best in this recipe.
  • olive oil (only if frying on the stove) – Your cooking method will determine how much you need, or what type. We use olive oil cooking spray for baked or the air fryer, but obviously regular oil should be used for frying. We just recently starting using this avocado oil cooking spray… it’s just perfect for high heat cooking.

How to make Avocado Fries

  • on the stovetop, the most traditional method. Simply heat your oil to between 350 to 375 degrees. I use this frying thermometer to check. Gently place breaded avocados into oil, and fry for about 1 minute on each side. Be careful not to crowd them in the pan. They’re ready when they are golden brown.
  • in the oven, simply follow the recipe, but place coated avocado fries on a baking sheet, spray with olive oil cooking spray and bake at 350 degrees for approx. 15-20 or until golden brown.
  • in the air fryer, follow the recipe but place breaded avocado into the basket of your air fryer, careful to keep them from touching so the air will get all around them. Spray with cooking oil on both side. Please keep in mind that all air fryers are different and tend to cook different. I have this OG air fryer, and in mine, I cook them for about 3-5 minutes, flip them and then cook them for 3-5 minutes. I use the french fry setting, but that seems to be roughly about 350-375 degrees. Just keep watch and when you take them out to flip them the first time, determine how much longer you think they need.

Ingredients
  

For the Fries:

  • 2 avocados sliced into ¼ inch slices
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ C. milk
  • 1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
  • A spoonful of flour see directions
  • 3 tsp. of Red Pepper or Chili Powder
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 c. all purpose flour
  • olive oil

For the Aioli:

  • ¾ c. mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbs. minced garlic
  • 2 ½ Tbs. lime juice
  • ¾ tsp. chili seasoning we also sometimes use taco seasoning

Instructions
 

  • You should mix up the Aioli sauce first, so that it is ready when you’re ready to eat these little babies.
  • Fill a skillet with oil until about ¼-½? full. Heat on med-high until a drop if water causes the oil to sizzle.
  • Slice the avocados into approximate ¼” slices.
  • In one bowl, whisk together your eggs, the milk and the Worcestershire sauce. Add a spoonful or two of flour. You’re looking for a smooth consistency but with a little hold. (this helps when dipping everything). I usually start with about a tablespoon and then add about a ½ tablespoon more. Honestly, I’ve found that a single tablespoon is not always enough.
  • In another bowl, combine the rest of your flour, pepper and red pepper or chili powder – you choose which way you want it. We actually used red pepper. Mix it all together.
  • Now, take each slice of Avocado, dip it into the egg mixture and then the flour mixture, then back into the egg mixture then a final dredge through the flour mixture. Set them on a plate until you have them all ready to cook.
  • When ready to cook, choose your cooking method and follow the directions for that cooking method.
  • on the stovetop, simply heat oil and place avocados into oil, and fry for about 1 minute on each side. Be careful not to crowd them in the pan. Remove them to a paper towel. Allow to cool slightly before enjoying. They are awesome warm or cold!
  • in the oven, simply follow the recipe, but place coated avocado fries on a baking sheet, spray with olive oil cooking spray and bake at 350 degrees for approx. 15-20 or until golden brown.
  • in the air fryer, follow the recipe but place breaded avocado into the basket of your air fryer, careful to keep them from touching so the air will get all around them. Spray with cooking oil on both side. Please keep in mind that all air fryers are different and tend to cook different. I have this OG air fryer, and in mine, I cook them for about 3-5 minutes, flip them and then cook them for 3-5 minutes. I use the french fry setting, but that seems to be roughly about 350-375 degrees. Just keep watch and when you take them out to flip them the first time, determine how much longer you think they need.

For the Garlic Lime Chili Aioli.

  • Mix mayonnaise, garlic, lime juice and chili seasoning in a bowl or in the blender. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving to allow the flavors to marry. Serve on the side of the avocado fries or with any other kind of food.

Hi Nicole, I saw your link in AtoZ challenge, the dish looks fantastic. I'm going to trying for sure as I love avodacos. I would just say that normally I prepare my own alioli (I'm spanish and alioli is like milk for us ;) ), the taste is better than when you buy a ready-made mayonnaise

I love avocados too! Not only highly nutritious, they make super efficient fat burners too. I have written about them at length in one of my posts on "The best fat burning vegetables".

Nicole, I would have NEVER thought of making these myself, so thank you so much for sharing. I love avocado too, and this sounds exactly like my kind of snack. Can you be my mom, too? I don't need much taking care of, only feeding! I think your kids may have been spoiled by your amazing food too much already ;)

I'll have to try and hunt down some avocado to try this (it's not cheap here in Korea) but I shall persevere. These look to good not to try.

I might have to try these sometime. I don't usually eat fried foods, but I might make an exception for these. I remember having fried artichoke hearts as a kid & loving them. Might try that too. Thanks for the follow on twitter & Look forward to visiting again. Drop by anytime @ DearCreatives.
