I love avocado. Like… want to marry it and live forever in a beautiful house by the lake with it. That said, we all know avocados tend to live like this:

But what to do with them? Why not wedge that deliciousness coat it with spices and panko bread crumbs and bake (or BBQ on a cookie sheet) until crispy? They are amazing. You wont get the crunch of a chip or a toasted piece of bread, but the texture of the breadcrumbs is amazing. Use them to top salads or as a wicked tasty side dish.

Breaded Avocado Wedges

1 Avocado
1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (go vegan if you like and replace the cheese with double the amount of bread crumbs)
1 TBSP Italian Herb Blend
Fleur de sel and freshly ground Tellicherry peppercorns to taste

Cut the avocado in half. Remove the pit. Cut into wedges. Remove skin.


Combine all other ingredients in a shallow dish. Press avocado wedges in mixture, making sure to get a single layer of coating over as much of the wedge as possible.

Lay breaded avocado wedges on a baking sheet and cook at 350 until bread becomes slightly golden brown – about 10 minutes.

Happy Cooking!
