Asparagus spears are dipped in an egg white-mayonnaise mixture, then coated in Parmesan and panko breadcrumbs before a trip to the oven to bake into a crunchy, delicious side dish. Very easy and delicious!

we tried this against the asparagus with sliced almonds and parmesan recipe from this site. we enjoyed this recipe but, the other just had so much more flavor. so 3.5 stars. if the compition wasn't so strong maybe 4 stars.

Make sure your asparagus is very dry to start or egg white will not stick therefore your crumbs will not stick. I mixed Panko with finer ground crumbs for extra crunch. I found finer ground crumbs stick better than course crumbs. Panko and Parmesan is the best. I've tried different green and yellow squash, carrots and other veggies. I can hardly wait to try it on the outdoor grill.
