Baked parmesan asparagus fries


  • 1 cup Panko* (Panko is a Japanese-style breadcrumb which you’ll find in your local Asian supermarket or some well-stocked regular grocery stores)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine Panko and Parmesan; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.
  3. Working in batches, dredge asparagus in flour, dip into eggs, then dredge in Panko mixture, pressing to coat.
  4. Place asparagus in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.
  5. Serve immediately.
