There was a silly old time when I didn’t eat asparagus. GOSH was I missing out!!! Now, I just can’t seem to get enough of them and the bonus is that Boo likes ’em too!
So whether we’re grilling or preparing sides for a meal, I try to keep a good stash of asparagus on hand.

These Asparagus fries are baked and so easy to prepare–the oven does most of the work and isn’t that a bonus?
They are crunchy, light, and yummy!
1 # fresh asparagus
1 T. olive oil
1/4 c. each of milk, flour & grated parmesan cheese
3/4 c. panko crumbs
Wash, trim and pat dry the asparagus, then start by tossing the asparagus in the olive oil and setting aside.
In a small bowl, mix the egg w/milk and set aside.
Combine the flour, panko, spices and cheese in a flat dish.
Dip asparagus in egg mixture, covering completely and then dredge them babies in the flour mixture.
Lay ’em on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake in 375° for 6 min., turn and bake 5 more til golden brown.
Remove from oven and eat immediately–cause they’re super delectable!
