I made these about a week ago but I then forgot to blog about them. Ooops. They’re an alternative to potato chips and whilst they are nice they are a little bland – I guess avocado doesn’t have a huge amount of flavour. Alberto suggested marinating the avocado slices in chilli and lime juice before coating them – that might work. I’ll try that next time!
They’re quite simple to make, although the dipping in flour, egg and breadcrumbs is, as you might expect, quite messy.
Serves 1 (makes about 10 chips)
1 avocado, cut into thick slices
1 plate of flour
1 egg, beaten
Panko breadcrumbs (It always takes more than you think it will!)
Salt and pepper
Spray oil for cooking
Pre-heat the oven to 200
Peel the avocado and cut it into thick slices.
Season the plate of flour well with salt and pepper.
Dip each slice first in flour, then in egg and then, finally in the Panko breadcrumbs, ensuring the each slices is well coated in the crumbs.
Spray a baking tray with cooking oil and then lay the crumbed slices on the tray. Spray the slices with oil, then place in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, until crispy and golden.
They are nice – crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside – they’re just not bursting with flavour. Still, next time I’ll marinate them!
