here is another honest post…like yesterday when I spoke about the hollandaise sauce. i was honest.

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

INGREDIENTS

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

DIRECTIONS

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!

These sound absolutely fabulous! Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies, but I never know what to do with it other than roast it. This sounds delicious AND easy!

I had fried green beans the other day (actual fried. blech. not impressed!) and I think your baked version with asparagus would be soooo much better. I love asparagus in all forms!

I love doing this to green beans. I usually skip the eggs and it turns out nicely too but not as many bread crumbs stick.
