Adjust Servings

Original recipe yields 4 servings



  1. Bring about 2 inches of water to boil in a saucepan. Add the asparagus, and cook for about 3 minutes. Drain, and pat dry.
  2. Heat enough oil to cover the bottom of a large heavy skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Whisk the egg in a small bowl, and place the cracker crumbs in a separate bowl.
  3. Dip the asparagus pieces into the egg, and then coat with cracker crumbs. Fry in the hot oil until golden. Turn frequently for even cooking. If they are browning too quickly, reduce the heat a little. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate before serving.

I'm glad I didn't waste a whole bunch of asparagus on this recipe. I used maybe 10 or 12 lengths, chopped them as instructed, and followed the directions. The crumbs would NOT stick to the asparagus, even after being dipped in the egg. I tried shaking excess egg off, even THAT didn't help. I came away with greasy asparagus and greasy, fried cracker crumbs. I'll stick with grilled or pan-fried asparagus with butter, but thanks anyway. :)

I only tried it with a couple of stalks just in case, and the others are right, this isn't worth the time and is a great waste of fresh asparagus



This was a great recipe! The kids loved it. I added some parmesan cheese to the crackers and that came out good too.
