These are seriously delicious!
Taking hardly anytime at all to rustle up, they’re a life saver for when those last min guests arrive!
1 ripe avocado (per person or to share if only looking for a small side)
1 egg (beaten)
2 slices of bread (per avocado, blitzed. I used 50/50 bread)
3 heaped tablespoons flour
Using a handheld mixer (or a food processor if you have one), blitz your crustless bread until fine.
Next, cut open your avocado and slice vertically. Usually three cuts, making four sections of avocado works best. Using a teaspoon, gently scoop out the segments and then, one at a time, roll in your flour
Once complete, they should look something like this
Truth telling time, I tried to just shred the bread by hand at first. Whilst it was super tasty and even had a little extra crunch, it didn’t have as much coverage as I wanted, so I would definitely recommend blitzing/food processing the bread for best results. Throughout this post, I’ve used pictures from both my first and second batch so you can see the difference!
In a saucepan, heat some oil and – without burning yourself – lower in a segment, if it doesn’t start sizzling immediately, your oil isn’t hot enough yet. Cook until golden brown.
Squeeze a good dose of lime over the top and serve immediately with your favourite dip
^ see the coverage difference?
When you take a bite, the softness of the avocado is the stuff foodie dreams are made of, I’m sure of it!
If you don’t have a favourite dip of your own, steal mine!
Mix together 2 parts mayonnaise with 1 part ketchup, then add 1/2 a teaspoon of hot chilli powder and a sprinkle of oregano, absolutely nom – everytime!
Make for friends, family or best of all, for yourself – because as I’m sure we can all agree
