Avocado fries is a type of fries dish prepared using avocado instead of potatoes.[10][11] The avocado is typically sliced into strips, breaded or battered, and then deep-fried.[11] The breading or batter may be seasoned, and salt can be sprinkled atop the dish after deep-frying occurs.[12][13] It is sometimes served as an appetizer or starter dish, and may be accompanied with a dipping sauce.[11][14] Avocado fries can also be cooked by baking.[15][16] Avocado fries have less carbohydrates compared to fries prepared using potatoes.[17]

Commercial preparations[edit]

The Cheesecake Factory, a restaurant chain in the United States, has purveyed a deep-fried avocado egg roll dish.[19]
