Baked Avocado Fries

I saw these on Pinterest and since I love avocado, I was intrigued.  The only reason I took so long to make them is I wasn't sure if they would be as good as an avocado is by itself.  Then when I made them, turns out I was right, to me it wasn't worth wasting an avocado.  I still wanted to post this though because I think some people would absolutely LOVE these even though I didn't. I'm more of a purist with avocado and I feel like the Panko is too overpowering for me.  I'll stick with Oven Baked Pickle Fries instead!

1/4 cup flour

2 firm-ripe medium avocados, pitted, peeled, and sliced into 1/2 in. wedges
grated Parmesan for serving (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees

2. Coat avocado slices into the flour, then egg, then panko.  Shake off extra and then place on cookie sheet.  Spray the top of the wedges with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, then bake for about 20 minutes at 450 or until they are golden brown.  Top will Parmesan if desired.

I had the same reservations that you did about "wasting" an avocado by breading/baking it!

Thanks for posting this - I think I'll stick to fresh avocado and try those baked pickles instead. :)

I've been wondering about these too after seeing them on the big "P". The avocados here are small and and probably aren't so great for this type of recipe anyway, so I'm glad to hear your opinion on them.
