You might not believe this one, but your favorite healthy fat, the avocado, can be fried, too, and Food Republic is showing you how. We encourage you to go all out for the avocado and bread and fry the vegetable, rather than just baking it. Trust us when we say you’ll never go back to the white potatoes again.
When life hands you avocados, make guacamole, and to dip in that, make these avocado fries. All hail the healthy fats.
- 2 large ripe avocados
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 large eggs, beaten
- 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
- kosher salt for sprinkling
- oil for deep-frying

Preheat fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Slice avocadoes in half, twist halves apart and remove pit. Cut each half into three wedges and peel off outer skin.
Dredge each wedge in flour, then soak in egg (leave it in for a few seconds to allow the egg to stick to the flour)
roll in breadcrumbs and place on a tray or platter.
Fry avocado wedges in batches, making sure not to overcrowd the fryer.
Remove after 5 minutes, or when they’re golden-brown and crisp-looking. Drain on several layers of paper towels
sprinkle with salt and serve with your favorite dipping sauce
