This post brought to you by Hass Avocado Board featuring Hass Avocados. All opinions are 100% mine.

Football season has officially arrived and it’s time to start pulling out your favorite game day recipes. If your a fan of avocados you already know they go way beyond the popular guacamole tailgating dishes. From appetizers to main dishes, there truly are avocado recipes for just about every occasion.

Hass Avocados, the most popular avocado in California, are the only variety that are produced year round – making them always in season and the perfect addition to liven up your team menu.

So when I was asked to share my favorite avocado game day recipe for the Kick Off with Hass Avocados Recipe Contest I immediately thought of one of our fried finger food favorites ~ Italian Hass Avocado Fries.

Italian Hass Avocado Fried

Ingredients Needed:

2 Eggs

1/2 cup of Seasoned Bread Crumbs

1/2 Cup of Seasoned Panko Bread Crumbs

1/2 Teaspoon of Oregano

1/2 Teaspoon of Basil

1/4 Teaspoon of Kosher Salt

3 Firm Hass Avocados

Oil for Frying

Parmesan Cheese

Begin by pitting, peeling, and slicing the avocados. If you are unfamiliar with avocados full preparation instructions can be found {here}.

Heat 2 inches of oil in a medium saucepan to 350º

Whisk the eggs in one shallow dish and mix both the breads crumbs, seasonings and salt in another.

Dip the avocado slices into the egg then into the bread crumb mixture to coat.

Fry in small batches until golden brown – approximately 2 minutes – one minute per side.

Transfer the slices to a plate lined with paper towels and allow to cool for a few minutes. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese prior to serving.
