These bacon breaded avocado fries will definitely leave your mouth watering. They are so easy to whip up… which is a good thing, because they’ll be gone fast! I love them paired with homemade ranch. Not to mention, this recipe is pretty low carb. The only bad thing is the bacon but you can always use turkey bacon as a substitute. Let me know what you think in the comments! Now, lets get started…
With Super Bowl this weekend, I figured it was a good time to roll out this recipe. This will be my fourth post this week… crazy!! These avocado fries have been so popular all over Facebook and Pinterest, but are usually just breaded. I had the idea to wrap them in bacon instead, but I saw that on Pinterest too. I then decided I could make a bacon breading! They turned out so yummy!! The homemade ranch was inspired by Morgan from Timeless Taste Blog, she showed a really easy way to make homemade ranch in one of her Instagram stories. While I couldn’t get her exact recipe, it wasn’t hard to find a recipe online! The ranch also turned out excellent and it’s so easy to make. Enjoy!!
For Avocado Fries
- 1 pack of bacon
- 1/2-1 cup panko bread crumbs
- 1 egg, lightly beaten for breading
- flour, for breading
- 1 avocado
- other seasoning of your choice, optional (I used chipotle seasoning)
- 1 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup mayo
- 1 oz package of ranch seasoning mix
For Avocado Fries
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
- Cook bacon as you normally would
- Add aproximately equal amounts of panko bread crumbs and bacon into food processor and pulse until mixture resembles crumbs, season mixture with seasoning of your choice
- Slice avocado into slices
- Dip avocado slices into flour, egg, and bread crumb mixture, place on prepared baking sheet
- Cook for approximately 10 min, or until breading become golden brown.
Note: Using an almost-ripe avocado for this recipe will make breading easier, since your slices will be more firm and easier to work with. The avocado will soften in the oven.
- Mix all ingredient together until smooth
Note: I added extra garlic powder, because I like my ranch extra garlic-y. Taste test and play around with it!
