What You’ll Need
3 Avocados
(One Avocado = 8-10 Fries)
1 Cup of Flour
1 Cup of Breadcrumbs
Feeling Healthy? Sub. for 3/4 Cup of Breadcrumbs & 2 Tablespoons of Ground Flax
3 Eggs (Whisked)
1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1 Teaspoon Salt
Pepper
Optional: 4 Tablespoons Grated Parmesan

Let’s Get Cooking!
– Step 1 –
In three bowls, set up the whisked eggs, the flour, and the breadcrumbs (with the salt and cayenne pepper mixed in).

– Step 2 –
Lay out a baking sheet with wax paper.

– Step 3 –
Cut the avocados in half, remove the pit, and scoop out the avocado.

– Step 4 –
Slice each avocado half into 4-5 wedges. You want these to be relatively thick – if they’re too thin, they’ll fall apart in people’s hands.

– Step 5 –
Coat the wedges in the flour, then in the egg, and finally in the breadcrumbs.

– Step 6 –
Lay the wedges on the wax paper, sprinkle on some pepper and (if you want) the grated parmesan.

– Step 7 –
Bake at 400ºF for 6 minutes, flip the wedges, and bake for 6 more minutes.

Suggested Dips: Chipotle Mayo, Sriracha Garlic Dip, and (of course) Ranch
