Crispy Baked Asparagus Fries Recipe
How To Make:
1 lb fresh asparagus spears
3 egg whites
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup breadcrumbs or panko breadcrumbs
1 Tbsp Old Bay seasoning
1 Tbsp flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
Heat oven to 375 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil. If you don’t have either of those handy, spray your pan well with cooking spray.
Wash your bunch of asparagus and cut off the woody ends. Lay them out on a paper towel and pat dry to remove any excess moisture.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the egg whites and flour.
In a second bowl, combine panko or bread crumbs, Old Bay Seasoning, parsley, and shredded Parmesan cheese. You will want each bowl to be large enough to fit the asparagus.
Dip and thoroughly coat each of the asparagus stalks in the beaten egg mixture and let the excess drip off.
Now, move it to the next bowl and thoroughly coat the now wet asparagus spear in the panko parmesan mixture.
Arrange the coated asparagus in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Top with some salt and pepper to your personal preference.
Bake asparagus for 15 to 20 minutes on the middle oven rack. You’ll know they are ready when they look golden brown and crispy.
Allow them to cool on a wire rack or serve immediately for best results and enjoy!
*Note – if you include lemon slices and drip some lemon juice on top of the cooked asparagus, it’s fantastic!
What Dipping Sauce Can I Serve With This Parmesan Asparagus Recipe?
If you want to dip this breaded asparagus, go for your favorite sauce. Ranch dressing, garlic aioli, or another creamy variety would be my suggestion. Serve it in a shallow dish on a plate next to your asparagus and serve!
Can I Add Garlic To This Asparagus Recipe?
Yes! I have been asked this a few times and you absolutely can. If you want to add garlic powder or fresh garlic to the dry ingredients and proceed from there, you’ll have Crispy Baked Garlic Parmesan Asparagus Fries and they’ll also be fantastic!
