There’s a place, here in Utah, called Gardner Village. It’s where women go, with their girlfriends, to escape poopie diapers, dishes, and laundry. It’s the cutest place, with little gift shops, a restaurant, bakery, candy store, and ducks…I love the ducks walking around! My best girl, Paula and I, can be found there…oh, every few months, munching on a bit of heaven…namely, Fried Avocados. It’s served as an appetizer and we each get our OWN plate. No sharing avocados. It’s like sharing expensive chocolate, shampoo, and husbands. Just doesn’t happen. Anyway, these fried avocados make all of our troubles go away. All the sudden, our kids are cute again, our husbands are the “best ever,” and we’ve never felt as pretty. Magical.
Fried Avocado with Salsa Ranch Dip
- Bread crumbs or Panko
- Ranch Dressing
- Canola oil
Heat a large pot (or dutch oven, or deep fryer), ½ way filled with oil (or more), until it reaches 350 degrees. Try to maintain the temperature the entire time, by using a thermometer.
Slice up your avocados.
Dip them in a bowl of whipped eggs, then into a bowl of bread crumbs.
Set aside, until oil is hot.
Using a slotted spoon, lower the coated avocado into the hot oil, and let fry until the bread crumbs turn golden.
Remove and set on paper towels, to absorb excess oil.
To make the dip, mix roughly 3 parts ranch dressing to 1 part salsa.

Ha, ha Mariel! Your post gave me a good chuckle to start the day off. You have such a good sense of humor! Now, if I could just get my kids and husband to eat avocados, I’d be a happy woman. Or not, because that means I’d have to share. I just made your avocado, tomato, feta dip for a meeting this week. It was a huge hit! Keep the yummy recipes coming!

Oh, for delish. I neeeeeed some of these right now. (First of all to escape the poopie diapers… good times… and…. yeah. Just the poopie diapers.) ;o)
I had to laugh because I mis-read that one part and thought you’d said ‘eating your kids’ instead of ‘beating’… I was thinking that would be some SERIOUS hunger going on! Can’t wait to try these!!
Oh, I’m not above “eating my kids”. I have to hold myself back from taking a huge bite out of their little cheeks.

I love these! I had them over the summer and they are fabulous! Also try fried zucchini; just as delicious!
I just found you through TastyKitchen, and all I can say is YUM! I love avocadoes, and these look perfect. I can totally see how this little dish would restore all good feelings and happiness to your life. =)

Wow! Fried avocado sounds awesome, I have never had it before! Next time they go on sale, I will be trying this, thanks!
You’ll love it! It’s always a hit over here. Thanks for stopping by, Bethany!
I have never heard of fried avocado before, but as soon as i saw this recipe it caught my eye and im looking forward to getting in the kitchen tomorrow and experimenting with this great idea : )
My family is always requesting this! My only reservation in making it is that we can’t stop eating them and avocado is so expensive here! But, it’s super good. Hope you love it. 🙂
