What you’ll need to do…

Step 1: “Alrighty, folks, let’s kick things off by preheating that oven to a toasty 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Grab your trusty baking sheet and line it with either a Silpat baking mat or some parchment paper. We’re ready to roll!”

Step 2: “Now, let’s show those avocados who’s boss! 🥑 Peel ’em, slice ’em in half, and then work your magic to cut each half into 6 delicious wedges. That’s right, 12 heavenly wedges per avocado. We’re doubling down on yumminess here!” Refer the recipe card below for in-process images.

Step 5: “Get ready to dip and coat like a pro! Take each avocado wedge, give it a nice egg bath, and then dive right into that breading mixture. Roll ’em around until they’re coated in all that savory goodness. Repeat until all 24 wedges are ready to rock!”

Step 6: “Pop those beauties onto your prepared baking sheet and slide ’em into the oven for about 6 minutes. Then, flip ’em over gently and let ’em bake for another 5-6 minutes until they’re golden brown and crispy. Patience is a virtue, my friends!”

Optional Step: “Feelin’ fancy? Want an extra thick coat? No problemo! Grab some coconut flour and give those avocado slices a coconutty hug before you dip ’em in the egg wash and roll ’em in the almond meal mixture. Talk about layers of flavor!”

Step 7: “While those fries are cooling off, it’s sauce time, folks! Mix up some mayo, garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, chopped parsley, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Boom, garlic dipping sauce ready to rock your taste buds!”

Some useful tips

Here are some useful tips to ensure your Baked Avocado Fries turn out perfectly every time:

Try this recipe: Avocado and Potato Salad

1| Choose Ripe Avocados: Select avocados that are ripe but still firm. They should yield slightly to gentle pressure when squeezed, but not be overly soft or mushy.

2| Slice Evenly: To ensure even cooking, try to slice the avocados into uniform wedges. This will help them cook evenly and prevent some from becoming overly soft while others remain undercooked.

3| Preheat the Oven: Make sure to preheat your oven to the specified temperature before baking the avocado fries. This ensures that they cook evenly and become crispy on the outside.

4| Use a Non-Stick Surface: Whether you’re using a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper, lining your baking sheet with a non-stick surface will prevent the avocado fries from sticking and make cleanup easier.

5| Coat Thoroughly: When coating the avocado wedges in the breading mixture, make sure to thoroughly coat each wedge to ensure maximum flavor and crunchiness.

6| Handle Gently: Avocado fries can be delicate, so handle them gently when dipping and transferring to the baking sheet to prevent them from breaking apart.

7| Flip Carefully: When flipping the avocado fries halfway through baking, use a spatula or tongs to turn them gently to avoid damaging the coating.

8| Watch Closely: Keep an eye on the avocado fries during the last few minutes of baking to prevent them from overcooking. They should be golden brown and crispy on the outside while still creamy on the inside.

9| Let Them Cool: Allow the avocado fries to cool slightly on the baking sheet before serving. This allows them to firm up slightly and makes them easier to handle.

10| Serve Immediately: Avocado fries are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven while they’re still warm and crispy. Serve them alongside the garlic dipping sauce for dipping and devouring!

By following these tips, you’ll be well on your way to making irresistible Baked Avocado Fries that are sure to impress!

Some storage suggestions

Here are some storage suggestions to help you preserve your Baked Avocado Fries and Garlic Dipping Sauce:

1| Refrigeration: If you have any leftover avocado fries, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They will keep well for up to 1-2 days. However, keep in mind that they may lose some of their crispiness when stored in the fridge.

2| Reheating: To reheat refrigerated avocado fries, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and place the fries on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 5-10 minutes, or until heated through and crispy again. Avoid microwaving as it may make the fries soggy.

3| Freezing: While avocado fries are best enjoyed fresh, you can freeze them for longer storage. Arrange the cooled fries in a single layer on a baking sheet and place them in the freezer until frozen solid. Once frozen, transfer the fries to a freezer-safe bag or container and store them in the freezer for up to 2-3 months.

4| Reheating from Frozen: When ready to enjoy, preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and place the frozen fries on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until heated through and crispy. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning.

5| Dipping Sauce Storage: Store any leftover garlic dipping sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will keep well for up to 3-5 days. Give it a stir before serving to recombine any separated ingredients.

6| Variation: If you anticipate having leftover dipping sauce, consider making a larger batch and storing it in smaller portions in ice cube trays. Once frozen, transfer the cubes to a freezer bag for longer storage. This way, you can thaw only as much sauce as you need for future use.

By following these storage suggestions, you can enjoy your Baked Avocado Fries and Garlic Dipping Sauce for longer and waste less food. Just remember to reheat the fries properly to maintain their crispy texture and enjoy them again and again!

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or a piece of parchment paper.

    Peel and slice each avocado in half. Cut each half into 6 wedges, rendering 12 wedges from each avocado.

  3. Step 3:

    In a shallow dish, mix almond meal, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  6. Step 6:

    Place wedges on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 6 minutes. Gently flip over and bake for 5-6 additional minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven. Cool on baking sheet 2-3 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Expand All:
Can I use regular flour instead of almond meal?

Absolutely! You can use regular flour as a substitute for almond meal if you prefer. However, keep in mind that almond meal adds a nutty flavor and texture to the fries, so the final result may vary slightly.

Can I make this recipe ahead of time?

While avocado fries are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven, you can prepare the avocado wedges and breading mixture ahead of time and store them separately in the refrigerator. When ready to serve, simply coat the avocado wedges in the breading mixture and bake as directed.

How do I know when the avocado fries are dome baking?

The avocado fries are done baking when they are golden brown and crispy on the outside. You can also test for doneness by inserting a fork or toothpick into the center of a fry – it should slide in easily with no resistance.

Can I use store-bought dipping sauce instead of making the garlic dipping sauce from scratch?

Absolutely! Feel free to use your favorite store-bought dipping sauce if you're short on time or prefer a different flavor. However, I highly recommend trying the homemade garlic dipping sauce – it's simple to make and adds a deliciously tangy kick to the fries.

Can I make this recipe vegan-friendly?

Yes, you can easily make this recipe vegan-friendly by using vegan Parmesan cheese and vegan mayonnaise for the dipping sauce. You can also substitute the egg wash with a mixture of non-dairy milk (such as almond or soy milk) and a splash of lemon juice.

What can I serve with avocado fries besides the garlic dipping sauce?

Avocado fries pair well with a variety of dipping sauces, including ketchup, ranch dressing, salsa, or even a spicy sriracha aioli. You can also serve them alongside a fresh salad, as a side dish for burgers or sandwiches, or as part of a tapas-style spread.
