Avocado slices with sugar (which are apparently a big hit in Brazil… or something. Krystal loved it. I was meh on the taste).
And the big guns.
Baked Avocado Fries.
Krystal got the idea from pinterest.
You can go here to get the original recipe.
I followed the recipe pretty much to a T, except that I made some substitutions. First of all, we are a gluten free household for the most part, and I don’t have Panko (Japanese bread crumbs) just hanging around the house. In fact, since Annie ate the last can of real bread crumbs, all I had was GF Corn Flake crumbs from the last time I made Michael GF fried ravioli. And since I was already making this recipe partly GF, I went ahead and used corn starch instead of flour.
I followed the directions and this is what I got before I put them in the oven (Note: the original directions say to put them on a wire rack. I don’t have a wire rack, so I just used parchment paper and a cookie sheet. I did turn them halfway through…)
|Don’t the look delicious?|
So after cooking these things for 20 minutes (20 minutes I’ll never get back, because we were watching The Hobbit), I got these:
|Totally instagramed. And they look delicious!|
The original pinterest post suggests that you use a dipping sauce with them, but we didn’t have anything.
Final verdict: Interesting. Krystal liked them more than I did. I was still slightly puzzled by the fact that I had just made avocado fries. To me its like frying butter. Flat out wierd.
