I am always on the hunt for alternative ways to serve meals to my family. Like everyone else, I purchase the same food items each week because my loved ones have certain preferences I dare not mess with—especially when it comes to serving healthy choices.

Since we are a Hispanic-oriented household, avocados are an essential staple in our pantry. As a child, I chomped on them like apples. And I know I have eaten well over the average person's lifetime consumption of guacamole.

Finding creative ways to serve avocados can be a challenge, but when I heard about this recipe, I could not resist experimenting. My family loves it, and that makes this mamacita very happy.

(By the way, these fries are actually oven-baked—but calling them "fried" makes them sound more appealing to kids, don't you think?)

Avocado Fries (Oven Baked)

Prep time: 25 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: Serves 4 to 6 people

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, fine ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt, or Herbamare seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/1/4 cups panko break crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 medium Hass avocados
  • 1/4 cup lite olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Peel, pit, and slice the avocados into 1/2 inch wedges.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (foil can be substituted). Spray nonstick cooking oil on the paper (or lightly oil the parchment or foil with olive oil).
  3. Using a shallow bowl (large cereal bowls will do), combine flour, sea salt, garlic salt, parsely, cumin, and pepper.
  4. In a second bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Pour the panko bread crumbs and grated Parmesan into a third shallow dish. Mix well.
  5. Set up an assembly line process: Dip avocado slices in flour mix. Coat evenly. Shake off excess. Next, dip slices in beaten eggs. Lastly, coat them with the panko-Parmesan mixture.
  6. Arrange slices in a single layer on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over the fries (You can also spray them with cooking oil for added flavor.)
  7. Bake 8 to 10 minutes until crisp and golden brown. Serve with a dipping sauce of your choice. (I use hummus or a sour cream-chipotle based dip.)

I use panko bread crumbs for convenience but if I have time I will make my own buttered crumbs. Dip the slices in the flour mixture so that they are completely covered. Shake off excess flour.  Use a fork to dip the flour-coated slices in the eggs. Again, make sure they are completely soaked before dipping in panko. Roll the slices in the panko crumbs. Places slices in a single layer on parchment-lined (sprayed with oil) baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil or spray with cooking spray. The fries should be a golden grown and crisp when done.

Avocado Tips and Info

Do you know how to pick a ripe avocado? It took me a few attempts to pick the perfect avocado at the grocery store. My mother's advice was to hold it in your palm and gently squeeze. If it yielded gently then it was ready to eat (similar to squeezing softened butter). If it yields like a soft peach, it is overly ripe.

Buy avocados that are dark in color with tints of light green on the skin. The photo below is an example of perfect color for ripened fruit. By the way, avocados cannot ripen on the tree, they must be picked. This is due to the chemical content of the tree leaves.

How does it taste? In my opinion, if you like the fresh, crisp, green taste of cucumbers you will enjoy eating avocados. The flesh of the fruit is meaty and has a firm texture unlike other fruits. I believe the fat content adds much to its flavor. Kids naturally love high-fat food content and serving avocados will fulfill cravings in a healthier way. Living in South Florida we have the larger variety available, although I prefer the California Haas variety for its taste.

Avocados are sodium and cholesterol free which makes them perfect for those of us on specific food plans, and a key component of a diabetes diet. They are high in fiber and contain essential vitamins such as vitamin B6, C and E. And if you are trying to get more potassium and magnesium in your meals, the avocado is perfect for meeting those needs.

You can store cut avocados in the refrigerator by placing them in a container filled with water. The water level should be about 1/2 inch above the fruit so that it is submerged completely. This method will prevent spoilage and keep it nice and green. For extra protection, you can brush the green flesh with fresh lemon juice to preserve its fresh taste and color. Use it within two days for best results.

        We love avocados and have used them in all kinds of ways, but never oven baked like this. Can't wait to try it! Sounds delicious! I always purposely pick out hard green avocados in the store and let them ripen on a windowsill at home and then refrigerate them until we use them. They keep for some time in the refrigerator, but I never knew that putting them in water would help to keep them longer. Will give that a try. Thanks for that tip and also your good sounding recipe. Pinning and happy to share.

        This sounds so easy and healthy. Baking rather than frying is what I prefer and the Panko bread crumbs would really add some crispness to the treat. I'll try this out sometime. My aunt had avocado trees in her yard and she served them with nearly every meal. I've really grown to love avocado.

        I needed the video on how to cut the avocado - didn't know to stab the seed to remove! Ha! So simple yet so elusive.

        This looks delicious - surprising - I would have thought baking would end up with soup.

        Will definitely try this - love the panko bread crumbs.

        Lady, these are baked but the notion of "fried" is more appealing and they resemble fries in shape. Enjoy you evening!

        Aesta, I love your recipe for the salad, The idea of mango and avocado is to flavorful. I'll have to try it.

        That is fascinating, the only time I have eaten cooked avocado was on a pizza. I would love to try this. I grew up with three trees in our garden in Africa - all of them being different varieties, one, light green, some that were as large as a side plate but also light smooth green and shiny, the biggest variety was the size of a dinner plate with scaly skin. We adored them in our family and would eat one or two each after a day at school. We would eat them with a spoonful of vinegar in the hole and spoon out the flesh with a teaspoon, simply delicious. We ripened them by wrapping them in newspaper - I still do this today. Thanks for a really interesting idea.

        Those look absolutely fabulous. I don't know if I could keep eager hands off the avocados long enough to slice, dredge and bake them, but it surely would be a delicious appetizer. We love avocados and guac just about any way we can get them.

        WriterJanis, glad you liked this recipe. It is one I enjoy and love it as an alternative to popcorn on movie night.

        Peach, Love my salads with a good topping of avocado. Enjoy your week and stay safe.

        Bdegiulio, Oh I love avocado fresh with tomato. Funny, I had this tonight for dinner. I appreciated your comment and support. Take care.

        Perspycacious, Thanks for the positive feedback. This is one recipe that is not only healthy but enjoyable. My teaching job keeps me busy and limits my writing. Hopefully, it will taper off once October comes and I'll be able to write a little more often here. Be safe and well!

        Among other high scores, I gave this its first "Beautiful" for the great photos, including the one that has my taste buds crying out for this fruit I usually avoid! Great recipe and I'm passing it along to the mamacita in this household.

        You are also entitled to praise for being such an active Commenter, but your published Hubs are too good to be spaced several weeks apart. So, what's next?

        Hi Dianna. I love avocados but have never seen them as fries. I think I would love these and they are so much healthier. We will sometimes make avocado and tomato sandwiches which are great. Thanks for the tip on placing in water in the frig. Great job with this hub.

        My kids (all grown) are great avocado fans and will love this recipe. Only one of my grandchildren eats avocado but I have a feeling this recipe could change all that.

        I love the background you provided with this recipe!

        Voted up, useful, awesome, and interesting.

        Thanks for the tips on the avocados, and how to buy them. I knew the part about buying or eating if they yield a bit, but not about the color. I'd like to try making these for my son, who needs to pack on some pounds.

        Sandy, wow, 49 cents is really good for avocados! I would have bought them out. Thanks for your comment and visit.

        Linda, I agree with your rating of amazing of avocados. I love them any day!

        Just the messenger, I would love them fried but I have to watch my calories these days. Glad you are still willing to try them.

        Avian, they look good and taste good too! Good to have your visit today.

        DDE, storing them in water works fine - but you still have to slice off the top layer a bit to get a firmer texture for usage. Good to see you!

        Tasha, it's a good alternative to the traditional guacamole in this house! Love that you stopped by to visit.

        Better, I just got another idea from a friend on using it as a breakfast dish. I am going to try it this weekend. Yes, it's fun finding other ways to serve this to family. Take care.

        When I saw the words " fried avocados" and healthy alternative, my first thought was that it's too good to be true. But, then I read the article and see these are actually baked. I will try this.

        Vellur, avocados are great and very good for you. Thanks for the comment and support. Enjoy your day, dear friend.

        Chef, you can sample them from your position on the fence once in a while. As you say, it may get you to come over one day. It takes some getting used to.

        Arachnea, good to see you here. It's one way to get your veggie count for the day. Take care.

        Matt, your comment is appreciated. Hope your weekend is a good one.

        My wife and two sons love avocado - I'm the only one on the fence! A recent trip to south America did help however. I saw big avocado on trees and ate some with Colombian friends. They almost convinced me. Your recipe pushes me a bit further off that fence. Great idea. They look delicious. Thank you for a healthy protein alternative.

        Audrey, love that you find avocados appealing. I drool just looking at one in the store!

        Victoria, I keep them whole in the fridge for about three days. Mine seem to spoil after that, but perhaps its my old model fridge!

        Lizzy, I was surprised at the amout of guacamole eaten too. Guess it's more popular than we thought. Let me know if you ever do eat an avocado - it takes some getting used to for some people.

        Stephanie, glad you got something out of the post. Wishing you a wonderful week.

        Mdscoggins, thank you for coming by and for your wonderful support. You take care and be safe.

        Flourish, thanks for the well wishes. I am very grateful for the award and support of fellow hubbers.

        Alicia, congrats on your Hub Award. YOu certainly deserved the honors! Hope the storage tip works for you.

        Epbooks, I love them sliced most days - like eating an apple. Just have to watch overeating them due to the high fat content. Oh well, gotta enjoy life some days!

        Rebecca, good to see you here and I always feel encouraged by your comments. Keep safe and well.

        Nell, I can understand your dislike of guacamole. It's not for everybody. My son hates it - go figure! Your visit made me smile.

        Hi Dianna, you are going to scream what?? but I have never had one in my life! lol! I think it was because when I was working my colleague ate guacamole next to me one day, and the smell made me want to, well, you can guess! lol! so that put me off even more! maybe Avocado tastes totally different so I will give it a go, and your recipe sounds amazing!
