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.
