Bacon Wrapped Avocado Fries

This recipe will make 16 avocado fries. You can easily double and triple the recipe.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 Avocados
  • 8 strips bacon
  • Salt
  • Toothpicks

Optional:

  • 1 Jalapeño, seeded and cut into strips and/or 1/4 red onion, cut into thin strips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit.
  3. With a knife cut the flesh of the avocado (that is still inside the skin) into strips. You should be able to make four “fries” from each half.
  4. Carefully scoop the avocado “fries” out of the skin of the avocado. Lightly sprinkle the avocado fries with some kosher salt.
  5. Cut the bacon in half widthwise.
  6. Take one an avocado fry and wrap with half a slice of bacon. Use 2 toothpicks to secure the bacon, one on each end of the avocado fry. (Optional add a strip of jalapeño or red onion next to the avocado and then wrap with bacon. To secure, put a toothpick through the bacon, then avocado and lastly the jalapeño/red onion.)
  7. Spray oil onto the wire rack of a baking sheet. Add bacon wrapped avocado fries to a wire rack. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until bacon is crispy. (If you do not have a wire rack, you can place the fries directly onto a baking sheet. I like to use the wire rack for extra crispy bacon.)
  8. Serve warm.

Optional:

Serve with herb dressing, sriracha, buffalo sauce, or ketchup.

Notes

Notes: you can make as many fries as you would like. Each full avocado produces 8 fries and needs 4 strips of bacon, cut in half.
