Fat Tuesday Food {Recipe: Avocado Fries}

So, Fat Tuesday is here…and after stepping on the scale this morning I can tell you that Fat Tuesday it is indeed.

Today is the end of the fat food around here for awhile… and by fat food I mean the food I’ve been cooking up in my new deep fryer. You know, the homemade yeast doughnuts, the fish tacos, the beer battered onion rings? Those recipes have been so easy to make since my deep fryer has been out. I’ve now packed my deep fryer away after using the heck out of it for a couple of weeks and am looking forward to some non-frying days to come.

I’m not bidding farewell without sharing one more recipe with you though. I was browsing through Coastal Living magazine the other day when I stumbled across this recipe for Avocado Fries. I had never heard of such a thing and knew I needed to become familiar with these little nibblers as soon as possible. If you think avocados couldn’t get any better, you were wrong. Slicing them into strips, breading them and then putting them in the fryer for a few minutes makes for one fantastic snack.

Of course, avocados are wonderful without taking any of these extra steps, but if you just want to somehow fit avocados into a Fat Tuesday treat, Coastal Living certainly has the way with these delicious Avocado Fries.

Recipe: Avocado Fries (From Coastal Living Magazine)

  • Canola oil for frying
  • 1/4  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  teaspoon  kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 2  large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/4  cups  panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 2  firm-ripe avocados, cut into 1/2-inch wedges

1. Pour oil to depth of 1 1/2 inches in a medium saucepan or Dutch oven. Heat to 375° over medium-high heat.

2. Meanwhile, combine flour and salt in a shallow plate. Put eggs and panko in separate shallow plates. Dip avocado wedges in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in egg, and then dredge in panko to coat.

3. Fry avocado wedges, in batches, 30 to 60 seconds or until golden brown, and drain on paper towels. Place on a baking sheet in a 200° oven to keep warm while frying remaining wedges. Sprinkle with additional salt to taste.

  1. yes yes yes. Just yes. Everything about these. Yes.

  2. Holy Cow! I think I might have to get one of those deep fryers. I’m gonna get in trouble….

  3. Why yes, I DO want to take an already-delicious food and make it even more delectable by frying it! ABSOLUTELY. :D

  4. Want.


  5. I love avocados… I love them even more fried!

  6. Okay… one more thing:

    Is it bad that I wanna dip those in a mixture of Ranch dressing and horseradish sauce?

    Oh, God. I’m in trouble.

  7. Having lived in avocado-rich Hawai’i and fry-happy Georgia, you’d athunk I’d have stumbled onto these before. But nope, new to me. Cheers!

  8. Love these! So much better than french fries!

  9. I’ve never heard of these either! They look & sound delicious :)

  10. Oooh, these look so good, Kristen!

  11. I would so love to try these!

  12. Yum! I adore avocados in all forms. I can only imagine how delicious these “healthy” fries are!

  13. Oh, these avocado fries look so good! Hubs and I are really trying to watch what we eat right now, but I might have to make these as our splurge later on in the week!

  14. Hmm, fat tuesday… Now that sounds like an appropriate title for today…lol… Having said that; while I can certainly do without the fried stuff (I do love it though) these avocado fries look totally delicious!

  15. Golly bum! I could really get into these. Yum!

  16. Now there’s a veggie I would have never thought to fry! I’ve seen fried sweet potatoes and fried zucchini, but never avocado.

  17. This is the third time I’ve seen a recipe posted for frying avocado in the past two weeks and it never gets old. I can only imagine…the creaminess of avocado with some salty crispness. Maybe sounded a bit weird cause it’s so unusual but I’m getting used to the idea and it’s sounding less so and more of a ‘have to’ soon!

  18. Deepfried avocado? I gotta say I never would’ve considered it, but you make it sound so yummy.

  19. Okay.. wow! I absolutely love avocado, and fries. Can’t wait to make them “merry” :-)

  20. These look so good, Kristen. It’s definitely Fat Tuesday around here, too! :)
