Sliced avocado, coated in breadcrumbs and baked until crispy. These avocado fries are easy to make, taste delicious and are perfect for baby-led weaning.
- 2 Avocados
- 1/4 cup (30g) Flour
- 2 Eggs, beaten
- 1 cup (55g) Panko Breadcrumbs
- Olive oil spray
Preheat oven to 200c / 400f / gas 6
Half the avocados, remove the stone and then slice each half lengthways, just to the skin, to form "fries". Use a large spoon to gently scoop out the slices. Alternately, you can peel back the skin of the avocado if you find that this would be easier.
Put flour, egg and breadcrumbs in 3 separate dishes
Dip the avocado in the flour, followed by egg and then coat in breadcrumbs
Place on greased baking tray and lightly spray with oil
Bake for approx 15 mins (until crispy and golden brown)

- Add some Flavour - Want to boost the flavour? Try seasoning the flour and/or breadcrumbs with a little garlic powder, chilli powder, smoked paprika or Cajun seasoning.
- Breadcrumbs - You can use any breadcrumbs, I believe panko breadcrumbs produce the best result and I love the extra crush they provide.
- Want a Darker Coating? - As this finger food is baked, and not fried, the coating isn't that dark golden brown colour that frying produces. If you have the extra time, you can pre-bake the breadcrumbs, before coating the avocado, to make them beautiful and golden
