Wow! How to Make Crunchy, Creamy Avocado Fries

April 10, 2015 | By | Comments (28)

We thought we had explored every way to enjoy the buttery-rich yumminess of avocados. But then we swooned over a photo of the breaded avocado fries in chef Hans Röckenwagner‘s latest cookbook, Das Cookbook. Röckenwagner, known for applying German cooking techniques to Californian cuisine, features these delightful snacks on the menus at two of his Los Angeles–based cafés. Inspired by the photo, we created our own lighter version, and the results were even more delicious than we’d imagined: When you coat creamy avocado wedges with a crisp breadcrumb crust, that contrast of textures makes the avocado seem doubly silky-rich. Be sure to follow Röckenwagner’s advice for success and start with firm, ripe avocados; cooking won’t add flavor, so the avocado has to be perfect from the start.

Avocado Fries

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
2 large egg whites
2 firm, ripe avocados
Cooking spray
1 lemon, cut into 6 wedges

1. Preheat broiler. Place a baking sheet in oven while broiler preheats.
2. Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Place breadcrumbs in a shallow dish. Place egg whites in a small bowl, and whisk until foamy.
3. Halve avocados, remove pits, and cut each half into 6 wedges. Pull off peels.
4. Dredge avocado wedges in flour, dip in egg white, and then dredge in breadcrumbs. Remove baking sheet from oven; coat with cooking spray. Place avocado slices on baking sheet; coat avocados with cooking spray.
5. Broil 5 minutes or until brown on top. Turn and broil 2 more minutes. Remove and serve with lemon wedges.

    Some questions…is that a Florida avocado or a Haas avocado? And did they use Panko in the video instead of plain breadcrumbs? Looks yummy.

    Elaine, the broiler is typically a preset temp, but if you don’t have one it is usually 500° F

    Bolthouse yogurt-based dressing in the avocado-cilantro flavor and also the ranch would be good.

    Sounds yummy! Any suggestions on a low carb dip to go with it?

      Fresh salsa will be tasty and a nice acidic contrast to the rich avocado. Or maybe try Greek yogurt mixed with chopped cilantro and parsley. Add some cumin and cayenne to season. You could finely grate a small piece of garlic into the yogurt dip too.
