Avocado fries are a healthier version of French fries. They taste great, and they're also very nutritious. You can serve these fries with my homemade fry sauce or with any dip of your choice.

For the avocado fries:
- 2 medium avocados, cut into thick strips

- Season the bread crumbs and eggs with salt and pepper. Set aside.

- Start the breading process. Dredge the avocado sticks with all-purpose flour; then coat with egg. For a thicker coating, repeat this step a second time.
- After coating each piece with flour and egg, roll it in bread crumbs.
- Freeze the breaded avocado fries for at least 1 hour before frying.

- Serve the fries with homemade fry sauce or with your favorite condiment or dip, such as ketchup.

- For best results, do not overcrowd the pan.
- Make a thicker breading by coating each piece of avocado twice with flour and egg.

- To adjust the spiciness of the fry sauce, adjust the amount of hot sauce.
