How to make Crispy Baked Avocado Fries
Pre-heat oven to 400 Degrees F. Pour 1 tablespoon oil in sheet tray or baking dish; set aside. If you want, squeeze fresh lime juice on avocado slices to preserve the color when baking.
Dredge into the flour, then dip in egg and coat in panko breadcrumbs.
Place the slices on the greased sheet pan. Drizzle with the remaining oil or use the cooking spray. This will help the avocado slices crisp in the oven.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the avocado slices are golden and crispy. You can drizzle with more oil if necessary.
Serve with a chipotle dipping sauce or your favorite dip. Enjoy!
