vegetable oil (for frying)
salt-free herb seasoning blend
avocado - peeled, pitted and sliced
This was great appetizer. However I would suggest adjusting the recipe by adding salt, either after frying the avocados or after the egg dipping process. Try using a seasoned mayonnaise (or just plain) as a dipping sauce. It’s a very nice companion.
This was alright, but I don't see myself making it again. As is it was pretty bland so I would definitely recommend adding some sea salt and a little lime juice after frying for flavor.
I baked these instead of frying. Lining the pan with foil and using cooking spray on the foil and on the top os the "fries". Baked at 425 for 20 min and dipped in ranch dressing.
If you freeze the slices for about 15-20 minutes before frying them, they won't get so smooshy during the frying process. :) Otherwise, I love dipping these in ranch!
Can be delicious if you use the right type of avocado. Don't use real soft or mushy avocados, buy them a little firm. Please make sure to add some salt to your flour or better yet use seasoned breadcrumbs. Can be a delicious and unexpected appetizer. The ultimate dipping sauce is a seasoned sour cream, such as Lawry's seasoning salt.
I think this a wonderful idea to do something different with an avocado instead of the same old boring guac. We all know its not the best for you, but it sure is good!!!!
I used Panko crumbs instead of flour (they have a nice light fluffy crunch) and paprika instead of herb seasoning and cumin. Also added Tabasco to the egg batter for more of a flavor punch and served with Marie's Blue Cheese salad dressing (available in the refrigerated produce section of most markets)for dipping sauce. Yum!
