Ingredients

  • 2 avocados not quite ripe *see note 1

Breading

  • 50 g pork rinds *see note 2
  • ¼ cup parmesan *see note 3
  • 1 ½ tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp sea salt

Egg Wash

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp water

Chipotle Mayo

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp chipotle sauce *see note 4
  • ¼ tsp sea salt

Instructions

Equipment Needed

Directions

  • Heat the oven to 450° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a non stick baking mat. Crush the pork rinds into a fine crumb by either wacking the bag with a rolling pin, or pulsing in a food processor *see note 5.
  • In a medium bowl toss the crushed pork rinds with parmesan, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt and pepper. In another bowl whisk the egg with water until the egg is thoroughly combined with the water, then set the bowl on your work station next to the bowl of pork rinds and the prepared baking sheet.
  • Cut open the avocados, carefully remove the pit and then peel away the peel *see note 6. Slice each half into 6 wedges so that you’ll get 6 fries from each half. Using one hand only for the egg wash and the other hand only for the breading, dip a slice of avocado into the egg wash, then toss it into the pork rinds. Place it on the baking sheet and then repeat for all of the fries *see note 7.
  • Double dip the Keto Avocado Fries in the egg mixture and then the pork rinds until all of the pork rinds have been used up. Bake in the preheated oven for 6 minutes, flip the fries and then bake for an additional 4-5 minutes, until the Keto Avocado Fries are golden brown.
  • Make the chipotle mayo while the fries are in the oven. Simply mix the mayo with the chipotle sauce and salt. Serve with the Keto Avocado Fries when they are freshly hot from the oven.

Notes

  1. Look for avocados that are aren’t quite fully ripe. They should be slightly soft though should be firmer than you would normally use. Don’t worry, they will soften while they are in the oven!
  2. I now use pork rinds instead of almond flour because it makes the fries crunchier and I prefer the flavour. Don’t want to use pork rinds? Simply swap out the 50g for 1/2 cup almond flour.
  3. We use the shelf stable parmesan in a shaker container for these Keto Avocado Fries – it’s the best when it comes to breading!
  4. My favourite brand of chipotle sauce is Cholula. I swear by the stuff! You can give it a try, or use your own favourite brand.
  5. The pork rinds need to be finely crushed to work properly as breading for the fries. Wacking them with a rolling pin works fine but the extra step of using a food processor works the best, even if it means extra dishes!
  6. You have to be careful while removing the pit from an avocado – it’s easy to cut your hand! Slice the avocado open carefully, then hit the pit with a knife and twist to remove.
  7. Be sure to use one hand only for the egg wash and the other hand only for the breading because the pork rinds are unusable if they get too wet.
