Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan. Pour enough water into the saucepan to reach just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring the water to a boil. Add the asparagus, cover, and steam until just tender, 2 to 6 minutes depending on thickness.
  3. Place the asparagus into a baking dish. Spread mayonnaise over the asparagus; sprinkle with bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the crumbs and cheese are golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Great Idea...but try it with Roasted Asparagus instead of steaming! Awesome! I just lightly oil the asparagus with canola or olive oil, salt and pepper then place in 425 degree oven for 8 min, then take out, lower oven to 375 and then place in glass dish, cover with toppings and back for 15 min. YUMMY

Yumm JZG. I was looking for something a bit different to do with fresh asparagus. I did this exactly as written since I had everything on hand. It turned out great (today it was my breakfast, lunch and the rest will be served with dinner, and I will make another batch for Easter dinner). Oh, and the broiler tip is a must. Thanks for sharing!

This was good but I think I prefer my asparagus simpler, roasted with a little provolone melted on it if anything. I think this recipe is probably pretty good for people who don't like asparagus that much or kids maybe. But for me the "junk" took too much away from the veggie itself, but then again, I am an asparagus lover. I am giving it four stars though because I did enjoy it and so did my husband.
