Crispy Baked Asparagus Fries

Crispy Baked Asparagus Fries
Asparagus are a family favorite.  I am always looking for new ways to prepare this delicious vegetable. The other day, I saw on my Facebook page a recipe for Crispy Baked Asparagus Fries.  They looked delicious and sounded delicious.  The picture was mouth watering.

I ran out to the store and picked out a fresh pound of asparagus and began making this veggie dish.  They are really very simple to make.   You begin by trimming the asparagus.  You then dredge the asparagus spears in flour, dip them in eggs, and then into some Panko breadcrumbs that have Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.  You place the asparagus on a wire rack placed in a baking sheet and bake  about 7-13 minutes in a 425 F degree oven.

The result:  Wonderful asparagus spears that are tender, crunchy, and extremely flavorful.  The family loved these.  Another  great asparagus recipe to be made again and again.

  1. Oh this recipe does sound delicious, Geraldine! I'm hoping to find some nice asparagus at the grocery this week. I may even use this recipe if I do. Marion would just love this as would I. Thank you so much for sharing, Geraldine...
