How Do you Cook Asparagus?

Asparagus may be baked, pan-fried, steamed or boiled. Though there are several methods for preparing asparagus. Oven baked asparagus is my favorite. The prep time is minimal with great results.

How to Make Baked Asparagus?

  • Trim ends of asparagus, layout onto a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Drizzle olive oil over asparagus, season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
  • Top asparagus with Mozzarella cheese, butter, Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs.
  • Baked until the asparagus is desired tenderness.

How to Pick Asparagus?

For best results, look for asparagus that is straight and firm and not mushy and soft. They should be a rich green and may have purple highlights.

What Kind of Cheese Can I Use?

Though we used Mozzarella in this recipe, Colby Jack, Provolone or Mexican will all work.

    These are so delicious and I don’t even like Asparagus. They are so crunchy yet so soft and the cheese adds the best flavor!
