Gluten Free recipe for Avocado Fries with spicy mayo

Gluten Free Avocado Fries with Spicy Sour Cream Sauce

In my opinion, there are a few foods that are practically perfect in every way. This Gluten Free Avocado Fries with Spicy Sour Cream Sauce recipe contains two of those: avocados and eggs.

Avocados have such a fabulous reputation for good reason – they’re versatile (take these chocolate avocado cupcakes, for instance) yet simple (avocado toast, for example). They’re healthy, yet they can be a bit naughty when they feel like it (like in these deviled eggs).

Avocados are packed with potassium, healthy fats, vitamin K, folate, vitamin C, fiber, antioxidants, and other vitamins and minerals. They’re said to help reduce inflammation, bad cholesterol, and triglycerides, too!

And then we have eggs. Eggs are also versatile yet simple, and are an inexpensive source of protein. They contain selenium, zinc, iron, copper, and vitamins A, B6, B12, D, E, and K.

Eggs are great as the star of the show but are also really wonderful as a supporting role – mostly as a binder, like in this recipe. I took sliced avocados and coated them with flour and crispy, toasted gluten free panko bread crumbs (I used Kinnikinnick), using eggs to bind it all together. The result? An amazing alternative to regular fries! These avocado fries are baked, not fried, and are healthier than traditional fries. They’re creamy, crispy, and make for a deliciously appealing appetizer or snack.
