1 large avocado3/4 cup flour2 eggs1 cup panko bread crumbs2 tablespoons hot sauceSalt and pepperCanola oil
Directions1. Start by setting up your breading station for the avocado slices. In one bowl, combine the 2 eggs and 2 tablespoons of hot sauce, whisk to combine. In another bowl combine flour with 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. The third bowl will hold your panko bread crumbs.2. Heat 2 cups of canola oil to slightly above medium heat. While the oil is heating, slice the avocado into 6 to 8 wedges, carefully remove the skins and set onto plate.3. When oil is hot enough (about 5 to 6 minutes), with your one hand, dredge avocado slices in the flour, then into egg, then into panko bread crumbs. Carefully drop into the oil. They brown pretty quickly, so do not walk away from them. Turn to brown the other side and transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Season with a little salt, as they come out of the oil. Cool slightly.4. Serve with your favorite salsas, hot sauce or BBQ sauce.
Note: When handling the avocado slices, be very careful, as they are soft and can break easily.
