i gotta be honest yet again…it was SO hard for me to drench my beautiful green farmers market fresh asparagus in bread crumbs.
it was hard i tell you. however with 4 pounds of asparagus in my fridge i really wanted to venture out from my normal roasting asparagus and try something new.
and try i did.
and in doing so…yummy asparagus fries!
overall these were really easy to make…just messy since you put in flour, eggs and breadcrumbs so your fingers get their own breading in the process. lol
1 pound farmers market fresh asparagus. break off ends
3/4 cup flour
3 eggs lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs – I used Ian’s brand
1. preheat oven to 425 degrees
2. dip the asparagus pieces into flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs
3. place asparagus on wire rack on cookie sheet. as shown in above photo.
4. Bake for 10-12 minutes
recipe adapted from closet cooking
now get that bowl of blender hollandaise sauce and start dipping!
