The secret to Crispy Avocado Fries

The best way to make crispy avocado fries involves a few key steps.

  • Opt for ripe avocadoes that are a bit firm yet. Overripe avocados can become too mushy during cooking.
  • Use a coating technique that includes dipping the avocado slices in flour, then egg, and finally in a crispy coating like panko breadcrumbs mixed with seasoning. This helps create a crispy outer layer.
  • Preheat your oven or air fryer properly and lightly grease the baking sheet or air fryer basket to prevent sticking.
  • Arrange the avocado slices in a single layer without overcrowding on the baking sheet or air fryer basket. This allows for even cooking and crispiness on all sides.
  • Depending on your cooking method, flip the avocado fries halfway through cooking to ensure they crisp up evenly on both sides.
  • Avoid overcooking, as this can result in overly mushy avocado fries. Cook them until they’re golden brown and crispy on the outside while still creamy on the inside.

What are some good dipping sauces for crispy avocado fries?

Here are some delicious dipping sauce options to pair with your Crispy Baked Avocado Fries:

  1. Creamy Garlic Aioli:
    • A classic choice! Mix mayonnaise, minced garlic, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt. Adjust the garlic and lemon to your taste.
  2. Spicy Sriracha Mayo:
    • Combine mayonnaise with Sriracha sauce for a tangy and spicy kick. Add a dash of lime juice for extra flavor.
  3. Cilantro Lime Yogurt Sauce:
    • Mix Greek yogurt, chopped cilantro, lime juice, salt, and a touch of honey. It’s refreshing and pairs well with avocado.
  4. Chipotle Ranch:
    • Blend ranch dressing with chipotle pepper (canned or powdered) for a smoky and creamy dip.
  5. Avocado Lime Crema:
    • Puree ripe avocado with sour cream, lime juice, and a pinch of salt. Creamy and zesty!
  6. Tangy Mango Salsa:
    • Dice fresh mango, red onion, jalapeño, and cilantro. Mix with lime juice and a pinch of salt. Sweet and tangy!

Ingredients

  • 2 Large Avocados sliced
  • 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 2 Large Eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 Cup Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt

Instructions

Baking in the Oven

  • Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet and set it aside. Next, halve the avocados lengthwise and then cut them into wedges.
  • Prepare three dishes for coating. Using a shallow bowl works well. In the first bowl add the beaten eggs. In the second bowl add the flower. The third bowl add the panko breadcrumbs mixed with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt.
    1/2 Cup Flour, 2 Large Eggs, 1 Cup Panko Breadcrumbs, 1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning, 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder, 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • Dredge each avocado wedge first in the flour mixture, then dip it in the egg, and finally coat it evenly with the seasoned panko mixture. Place the coated avocado wedges onto the prepared baking sheet.
    2 Large Avocados
  • Give the avocado wedges a light spray of cooking oil and bake them for 12-14 minutes until they turn crispy and golden brown.

Baking in the Air Fryer

  • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for a few minutes.
  • Prepare three shallow dishes for coating: one with beaten eggs, another with flour, and the last one with panko breadcrumbs mixed with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt.
  • Dredge each avocado wedge first in the flour mixture, then dip it in the egg, and finally coat it evenly with the seasoned panko mixture. Place the coated avocado wedges onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Place the coated avocado wedges in a single layer in the air fryer basket, making sure they are not touching each other. If desired spray with cooking spray for a bit extra crispy texture.
  • Cook the avocado wedges in the air fryer for about 8-10 minutes, flipping halfway through, until they are crispy and golden brown.

How to store and reheat leftover avocado fries?

Storing leftover avocado fries is essential to maintain their texture and flavor. Here are some tips on how to do it properly:
Refrigerate. Place the leftover avocado fries in an airtight container or a zip-top bag. Add a layer of parchment paper or wax paper between the fries to prevent them from sticking together. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1-2 days.
Avoid Freezing. Unfortunately, avocado fries do not freeze well due to their high water content. Freezing can cause them to become mushy upon thawing.
Reheating. To reheat, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Arrange the fries on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for about 5-7 minutes, or until they are heated through and crispy again. Keep an eye on them to avoid overcooking.
Best Fresh. Avocado fries are best enjoyed fresh, so try to eat them soon after baking for the crispiest texture. Reheated avocado fries may not be as crispy as when freshly baked, but they’ll still be tasty.
