Ingredients

  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus
  • 1/3 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup crushed potato chips
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • black pepper to taste
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup gluten free flour I used sprouted oat flour
  • 2 eggs beaten

Instructions

  • Preheat oven 425 degrees
  • Line large baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Rinse asparagus and break off woody ends*
  • Grate parmesan cheese with smallest grate on box grater and add to a mixing bowl.
  • I pulsed the potato chips in the food processor which only took a few seconds and got them the perfect texture**
  • Add crushed potato chips to parmesan cheese, along with garlic powder, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Mix well.
  • Add eggs to separate bowl and beat well.
  • Place flour on separate plate.
  • Starting with flour, roll asparagus into flour, dip into egg, and then parmesan mixture.
  • Lay on baking sheet and bake in preheated oven 15 minutes.
  • Rotate and bake an additional 5-7 minutes.
  • Can be served plain or with a dipping sauce***

Notes

* the asparagus should easily snap at that point.
**could also put them in a plastic bag and crush with rolling pan. Food processor is just much more efficient if you have one.
***I used a dipping sauce that consisted of mayo, dill weed, lime juice and garlic powder
