These were very tasty, I didn't have the panko so I used my own seasoned bread crumbs. I don't think it made any difference. I served them with chicken.

these are great! I have never had cooked avocados before so I was a liitle bit leary, but they turned out to be delicious. I didn't have seasoned bread crumbs either so I made up my own. I threw in some caraway seeds, they complement the avocado so well!
This is fantastic, the avocado was delicious as was the ketchup. My guest were impressed and it was easy to put together - a great combination. My only issue with this recipe is that it calls for way too much flour and too much of the egg/milk mixture - that could halved at least (leave the panko as is).
Used the guidelines for breading the avocados (with panko), but was limited on ingredients so didn't use this sauce. The Avocado was AWESOME made this way. I jerry-rigged a salsa from a can of drained Ro-tel, some spices and fresh lime. Was like eating deep fried guacomole! Very very good, and will be making this again, Thanks Dancer.
