Avocado Fries

I love avocados- on sandwiches, in guacamole, any way.
So, following my simple recipe trend, I decided to try making my own avocado fries last weekend.

I followed this recipe, but of course, made changes to my liking.

2 Eggs
Italian Shake 'n Bake
Cooking Spray
Ranch Dressing (for dipping)

First, I preheated the oven to 400 degrees.
Then, I cut, peeled, and lightly salted the avocados and prepared a tinfoil lined baking tray.

Next, I set up the coating station:
In the first bowl- flour.
In the second bowl- 2 beaten eggs.
In the third bowl- Italian Shake 'n Bake (this is where most people use Panko, Japanese bread crumbs).

I took each piece of avocado and rolled it in the flour, coated it in the egg, and then rolled it in the Shake 'n Bake until fully covered.

Finally, I laid the fries on the baking tray, and coated both sides of each piece with cooking spray.
I then baked at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes.

When they came out of the oven, I was extremely impressed.
With a little bit of ranch dressing on the side- perfect.

I did decide that I like cold avocados a lot more than warm avocados.
But, the Shake 'n Bake was amazing and crispy, so I enjoyed them.

If you're an avocado fan, I recommend you try!
