Need a quick side dish for you family holiday meal? This is so easy to make but so tasty. Quick Asparagus Fries have just enough crunch to give you the feel of fries but you are really eating your veggies. This would make a beautiful and different addition to your holiday table too. You can make these any day with a burger as well.
I always cut the bottom 3/4 inch of my asparagus before preparing it. You know that sort of dried out bit that’s stringy. And for this recipe I then cut the remaining in half so that you essentially get two fries out of each asparagus stalk. My family gobbled these up real quick, so you might want to double this recipe if you are trying to feed crowd.
I served this with a Spicy Pig burger (recipe from my Burgers on a Weeknight cookbook) and it was the perfect balance. And no one even missed regular fries. In fact there was a little bit of a kerfuffle over the last few on the baking sheet.
Now Let’s Get Cookin’!
