Summer and BBQs go hand in hand, just like baseball games and overpriced beer. And now that it looks like the warmer weather is finally here to stay, there is no better time to fire up the BBQ than the present.
But as the long lazy days of summer begin to roll by, you’ll start to realize that your favourite BBQ dishes are doing less for your beach body than you would like. It’s always easy to switch up your meats — from burgers to hotdogs or steaks to grilled salmon — but it’s harder to find healthy alternatives to your meats accompaniments — French fries.
Yes, the obvious replacement to fries is switching to yam fries, but overtime even these sweet alternatives can take a toll on your waistline.
Which is why we’re excited to share this amazing avocado fries recipe that we just discovered. Picture this: fresh sliced avocado, coated in crispy panko breadcrumbs and baked to perfection — talk about heaven. These avocado fries are incredibly tasty and easy to make and are sure to impress the pickiest of eaters.
-2 Large avocados, sliced
-Juice of ½ lime
-Salt and pepper
-1/4 Cup flour
-1 Egg, lightly beaten
-1 Cup panko breadcrumbs
-2 Tablespoons olive oil
-Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
-Pour 1 tablespoon of oil in sheet tray or baking dish and set aside.

-Dip the avocado slices into the egg and coat with panko breadcrumbs. Make sure that the slices are thoroughly covered in breadcrumbs.
