I love french fries. Oh, how I love crispy, crunchy, slightly salted, fried pieces of potato. They’re fabulous and of course we all have our favorite kind but does anyone really discriminate if a plate is put in front of them? No, no they don’t. Sometimes, though, you can’t get out of the house or you’re jonesing for starch but without the mild self-loathing that accompanies eating a large fry from a fast food place. Well have I got a snack for you.
1. Mini potatoes. They’re precious and can be found just about anywhere. I also threw in a larger potato because my hunger was beastly.
2. Avocado. Stick around to see why.
3. Onion. See #2.
4. Olive oil. Can’t have our potatoes burning.
5. Baking sheet. Self explanatory.
Let us begin.
Step 1. Preheat your oven for 350 degrees.
Step 7. Cut up the avocado. Hold the avocado vertically and cut all the way down and then match that slice up to the other side. The first time I ever cut an avocado I mangled it because the large seed in the middle threw off my game. I then proceeded to boycott them.
Step 8. The easiest way to get the actual fruit out of it’s casing is to make a grid slice and then push the outside inwards so that the cubes fall out.
