Tips for Making Air Fryer Avocado Fries:
The avocados need to first be peeled and cut in half. Once cut in half cut each half lengthwise to make strips or ‘fries’. Set these aside and continue on with the rest of the avocados, this made about 24-30 avocado fries.
If you do not need that many just cut down the amounts.
Once this is done, you will want to go ahead and prepare each bowl of ingredients per the recipe card. Be sure that when you are dipping each avocado that you coat them fully with egg.
If there is a part of the egg that is not covering the avocado the breadcrumb mixture will not stick.
It’s also best to coat the air fryer with cooking oil spray and then coat the avocado fries again when cooking. This light spray of oil will let them brown up and not be floury.
I almost always use Pompeian olive oil spray and have never found it to be an issue; however, if you prefer a higher heat spray use avocado oil spray or grapeseed oil spray.
The process is simple but remember that if it’s the first time making these, be sure to watch closely as all air fryers heat differently.
