It’s hard to beat the staple French fry, but these Parmesan asparagus fries are guaranteed to give the classic a run for their money. We coated asparagus in a cheesy Parmesan and panko mixture before baking, resulting in extra-crispy, golden-brown fries perfect for dipping in your favorite creamy, savory sauce. Whether you’re looking for a low-carb alternative to your favorite side or a Super Bowl snack to complete your spread, once you try a bite of these crispy bites, don’t blame us if you’re kicking potatoes straight to the curb.
How do you make Parmesan asparagus fries?
It’s the same process as our recipe for avocado fries: You’re going to dip your trimmed asparagus into flour, then egg, then a Parmesan and panko mixture before baking. If you’d prefer to use your air fryer, cook your fries at 400° for around 5 minutes before flipping and cooking for an additional 5 minutes (or until golden and crispy).
Serve these fries as a game day appetizer with homemade Caesar dressing (like we did here) or ranch dressing, or pair these as an easy side dish to your weeknight dinner! Serve alongside our crispy gnocchi and mushrooms, baked salmon or air fryer chicken Parmesan to double the cheesy factor.
Storage and reheating.
We’ve gotta be honest: These fries are ultimately their best right after serving. But, if you have any leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for around 3 days. When you’re ready to reheat, place in a 350° oven and bake until crispy again, around 10-15 minutes. Alternatively, toss in your air fryer to crisp them right back up!
