Sometimes avocado gets a little boring—gasp, did I just write that? Let’s do something about that, shall we?

These fries are awesome dipped in Ranch Dressing (here) or Green Speckled Dressing (here).

2 medium Hass avocados, peeled and pitted (about 8 oz/220 g of flesh)

16 strips bacon (about 1 lb/455 g), cut in half lengthwise

  1. Cut each avocado into 8 fry-shaped pieces, making a total of 16 fries.
  2. Wrap each avocado fry in 2 half-strips of bacon. Once complete, place in a large frying pan.
  3. Set the pan over medium heat and cover with a splash guard. Fry for 6 minutes on each side and on the bottom, or until crispy, for a total of 18 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat and enjoy immediately!
