Fried Avocado (1936)

  • 1 firm avocado
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cupful of cracker crumbs
  • Butter
  • Salt
Peel the avocado, and slice crosswise in rings, about 1/8-inch thick.  Salt lightly, dip in the beaten egg, then in the crackers crumbs, and fry quickly in hot butter.

Pour remaining egg into the seed cavity on each avocado ring.  Turn with a cake turner.  

"This is delicious, and a splendid main dish for a meatless supper."

(Origin - "Sunset's Hostess Handbook" by Genevieve A Callahan, Home Economics Director of Sunset Magazine, 1936.)
