Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 5 oz bag Texas Toast Garlic and Butter Croutons
  • 8 slices cooked bacon crumbled
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt plus more to taste
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 3 firm-ripe California avocados sliced into thin wedges


  • Pour 1 1/2 inch of oil into a deep frying pan or dutch oven. Heat to a consistent 350°F.
  • While oil is preheating, place Garlic and Butter Croutons in a food processor and pulse 3-4 times, until croutons are coarse crumbs. Pour into a shallow bowl and add bacon crumbles. Combine.
  • Place flour and salt in a separate shallow bowl and stir together.
  • Place beaten eggs in a 3rd shallow bowl.
  • Line up ingredients in this order: Sliced California avocados, salt/flour mixture, eggs, crouton/bacon mixture. Dip avocado first in the flour and shake off excess, next in the eggs and finally in the crouton/bacon mixture. Carefully place in preheated oil and fry for 30-60 seconds, or until avocado fries are golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  • Sprinkle with additional salt or dip in ranch dressing when serving.
