Bacon + Avocado = BLISS! These Bacon-Avocado Fries are the ultimate finger food. Time to dig in!

The other day we shared a recipe for avocado fries. Those ones were breaded and then baked until golden brown. They were seriously addictive. So addictive that I needed to riff on them. Riff on them by adding bacon, of course.

These avocado fries are really easy to make. You simply take bacon and wind it around avocado wedges. I stretch the bacon a bit first so that it’s thinner and crisps up quickly. Also, make sure you only do a single layer of bacon for the same reason. Then you put the bacon-wrapped avocado wedges on an oiled pan and bake them until the bacon is crispy. Around 20 minutes. That’s it, that’s all. Couldn’t be easier or tastier.

Love them up!

Bacon-Wrapped Avocado Fries

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Cooking spray
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 16 strips of bacon
  • ¼ cup ranch dressing

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Cut the avocados in half and carefully remove the pit. Use a soup spoon to carefully scoop the avocado halves out of the skin, keeping the halves intact. Slice each half into 4 wedges.
  3. Take a slice of bacon and stretch it to make it thinner. Wind it around an avocado wedge in a single, slightly overlapping, layer. Trim the bacon if it is too long. Place bacon-wrapped slice on the baking sheet and repeat with remaining avocado wedges.
  4. Bake for 12 minutes. Use a spatula to carefully lift the avocado wedges from the baking sheet and flip them over. Bake until bacon is crisp all around, about 4-6 minutes more. Serve with ranch dressing for dipping.
