Ingredient Notes & Substitutions

Avocados. Choose an almost-ripe avocado (one that is not too soft) to make avocado fries.

The avocados should have a little give when they are gently squeezed. If the avocados are too soft, it will be difficult to slice and cook them.

Panko Breadcrumbs are what makes these avocado fries extra crispy, and they can be substituted with regular breadcrumbs or gluten-free breadcrumbs if that is your preference.

Spices. You use any combination of spices to flavor the breadcrumbs. Sometimes I only garlic and oregano, or I try something different and use everything but the bagel seasoning.

How To Store Leftover Avocado Fries

Refrigerate any leftover avocado fries in an airtight container for up to two days.

Reheat them in a 350 degree preheated oven for about 10 minutes. Leftover fries will not be as crispy as when they are freshly made.

Freezing is not recommended. We have not tried freezing leftover avocado fries.

Make-Ahead Instructions

Avocados are fragile, and it’s not recommended to make these more than a few hours before cooking them. You can slice the avocado and coat the slices in crumbs and place them in the refrigerator for two to three few hours before cooking them.

To avoid brown avocado slices, do not slice the avocados until you are ready to coat them in breadcrumbs.

Variations

Spicy Avocado Fries – Add a teaspoon (more or less to taste) of chili flakes to the breadcrumb mixture.

Italian Avocado Fries – Add 1 tablespoon or two of shredded parmesan cheese to the breadcrumbs. Leave out the chili powder and ground cumin and add 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder. Dip the avocado fries in your favorite marinara sauce.

Gluten-Free Avocado Fries – Replace the panko breadcrumbs with gluten-free breadcrumbs.

Serving Suggestions

Serve avocado fries as a side dish with your favorite burger, tacos, or as an appetizer with your favorite dipping sauce or hot sauce such as ranch dressing or homemade salsa or sriracha dipping sauce.

Can I Make Avocado Fries in the Oven?

Yes, you can! Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and follow the directions in the recipe. Once the avocado slices are coated in breadcrumbs arrange them in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes and flip them halfway thru baking until golden and crispy.
