Green Fries (aka Crispy Baked Avocado Fries)
You know that moment when you get those late night craving for something crunchy and spicy, but your waistline screams at you, "for the love of God woman, don't eat yet another serving of fries!" It's one that us foodies know all too well. That's EXACTLY why I had to create a healthy, crunchy snack to help you with those late night cravings, so you can make more room for bacon at breakfast in the morning.
Green Fries (aka Crispy Baked Avocado Fries) are the best way to get your healthy snacking on without feeling like you're a rabbit. Munching on carrots and celery with ranch dressing gets old pretty fast, you know? Not only are these fries tasty and easy to make, they are served with a Chipotle Dipping Sauce that'll knock your socks off. If you are eating anything this weekend, it should be these fries because they are crispy perfection PLUS all those healthy fats and protein in avocado is proven to help you avoid a hangover. Win-win-win, baby. Happy snacking! [vimeo 161647570 w=500 h=281]Crispy Baked Avocado Fries from Pig of the Month BBQ.
INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Add flour to one bowl, beaten eggs to a second bowl and combine the breadcrumbs, cayenne, salt and pepper for the fries in a third bowl. Dredge the avocado slices in the flour, then the beaten egg, and finally the spiced breadcrumbs. Lay in an even layer on a greased, rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes until the fries are golden and crispy. In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce. Serve with the fries, fresh from the oven. Now just pair these Green Fries with a big ol' cocktail or beer and you'll have the healthy balance you've always dreamed of! Recipe, video & photos by Meghan Bassett
