What a great way to cook asparagus! Healthier than chips but packed with the same crisp. A fitter option to french fries prepared to flaky flawlessness right in your kitchen!
1 cup Panko*
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 pound asparagus, trimmed
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs, beaten
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, combine Panko and Parmesan; set aside.
Working in batches, dredge asparagus in flour, dip into eggs, then dredge in Panko mixture, pressing to coat.
Arrange asparagus in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet.
Put into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.
Note *Panko is a Japanese-style breadcrumb and can be located in the Asian section of your local grocery store.
