Baked Avocado Fries with Chipotle Mayo {Guest Post}

I  have another guest post for you all! Thanks for being patient with me, family always comes first with this girl–so that’s where my priorities lie right now. But I love you all and I miss cooking, baking, and blogging. I have some fun stuff coming up in the future though. 

In the meantime, welcome Mackenzie from Susie Freaking Homemaker. I knew I would love this girl from the minute I heard the name of her blog. And sure enough, we became fast friends through Twitter. You can also find her on Pinterest! I almost laughed out loud when I saw what she sent me, because I just missed the avocado extravaganza hosted by Virtual Potluck. So she’s filling in for me in more ways than one. Thanks for helping me out, Mackenzie!

I have been seeing avocado fries all over Pinterest lately, and since I love avocados and I’m not typically able to resist breaded items, this was the perfect combo. Plus, since it’s an avocado I refuse to feel bad about the fact that it’s breaded. Girl math is the best, isn’t it?

Ingredients for the fries:
2 avocados
3/4 cup of flour
2 eggs
3 tablespoons of water
1 cup of panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup of grated parmesean-reggiano cheese
1 pinch of cayenne pepper – optional
Fresh ground pepper

For the avocados you want them to be ripe, but still a little stiff. Almost as though you would rather eat them tomorrow instead of today. That way they will hold up through the breading and baking. If you have ever breaded anything you know where this is going… three bowls; one with the flour, one with the egg and water combo (an eggwash), and one with the bread crumbs, cayenne and cheese. Cut the avocados in half, remove them from the skin with a spoon. Place them flat side down on the cutting board, sprinkle with pepper. Slice the avocados, then go through the bowls – cover the slices in flour, then the egg wash, then in the panko mixture. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, or until they are good and golden brown.

Ingredients for the chipotle mayo:
3/4 cup of mayonnaise
1 chipotle pepper
1 teaspoon adobo sauce

Blend together in a food processor and serve.

Enjoy!
