Ingredients

  • 3 medium avocados
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup everything bagel seasoning
  • 2 large eggs
  • splash of water
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat air fryer to 400°F. Line a plate with wax paper and set aside, near the air fryer.

Slice Avocados

  • Slice avocados in half, lengthwise, removing the pit. Peel the skin off the avocado and slice each avocado half lengthwise into roughly 1/2" thick slices.

Bread Avocado Slices

  • Get out 3 shallow bowls. To the first one, add flour, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp paprika. Stir with a fork until combined.
  • In the second bowl, add 2 eggs and splash of water and whisk. In the third bowl, add the panko and the everything bagel seasoning. Stir with a fork to combine.
  • Coat the avocado slices, one at a time, in the flour mixture, then in the eggs, then in the panko mixture. Set aside on a plate and repeat with remaining slices.

Air Fry

  • Spray basket of air fryer with nonstick spray to prevent any sticking.
  • Add breaded avocado slices in a single layer to the bottom of the air fryer basket, making sure they're not touching each other. You'll likely have to cook the avocado slices in batches. Lightly spray with a canola oil cooking spray, then cook for 4 minutes.
  • Open air fryer, turn over avocado slices, spray with cooking spray, then cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until golden and crunchy.
  • Set cooked avocado fries on a plate and repeat with any remaining avocado slices.

Serve

  • Serve immediately, served with desired dipping sauce.

Notes

  1. Recipes serves approximately 6 people, with each person getting roughly half an avocado's worth of fries.

 

Oven Baked Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Bread avocado slices as written, then add them to the prepared baking sheet in a single layer, not touching each other.
  3. Bake 12-14 minutes, turning over halfway through, until golden and crispy.

 

Fried Directions:

  1. Heat about 1/2 cup of an oil with a high smoke point (such as canola, vegetable, peanut, sunflower, etc) in a deep skillet over MED/MED HIGH heat. 
  2. Line a baking sheet with paper towels and top with a cooling rack. 
  3. Bread avocado slices as written.
  4. Add a pinch of breadcrumbs to the oil to test to see if it's ready.  If the crumbs sizzle, but don't burn right away, it's ready.
  5. Add a single layer of avocado slices to the hot oil and cook approximately 2-3 minutes per side, until golden and crispy.
  6. Remove to prepared baking sheet/cooling rack.  Repeat with remaining avocado slices.
