Another nummy from last night’s Christmas potluck dinner…

Avocado Fries

Credit: Adapted from George’s at the Cove, San Diego, in The Sunset Cookbook

appetizer, serves about 6

Ingredients:

  • oil for frying
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/4 cups panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
  • 2 or 3 firm-ripe small-to-medium avocados, pitted, peeled and sliced into 1/2-inch wedges
    note: the # of avocados could vary a lot.  if in doubt, make extra batter/breading just in case.

Steps:

  1. Heat oven to 200 degrees. In a medium saucepan, heat 1 1/2 inches of oil to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix flour with salt in a shallow plate. Put eggs and panko in separate plates. Dip avocado wedges in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in egg, then in panko to coat. Set on 2 plates in single layers.
  3. Fry 1/4 of the avocado wedges at a time until deep golden, 30 to 60 seconds. Transfer to plate lined with paper towels. Keep warm in the oven while cooking remainder. Sprinkle with salt to taste.

I ran out of egg/panko mixture partway through; so we pulled an audible and mixed up some vegan egg replacer and Italian breadcrumbs for the last 1/3 of the batch.  That seemed to work out a-OK.  If you also had vegan breadcrumbs or vegan breading, this could be easily modified to a vegan recipe.  I imagine tempura batter would also work.

For our potluck, I had to make them and transport them; so they were slightly cooled once we ate them.  With that being said, they’d be best served immediately.
