These Asparagus Fries are a great alternative to regular fries. They're oven-baked, extra crispy, and easy to make.


  • 1 lb asparagus spears
  • ½ cup flour (I used a gluten-free blend)
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup breadcrumbs (panko or regular)
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp garlic granules or powder
  • ½ tsp onion granules or powder
  • ¼ tsp paprika powder
  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika (optional)
  • ¼ tsp fine sea salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • Avocado oil in a spray
  • Dip: House Sauce, ketchup, or other dipping sauce


  1. Preheat your oven to 425F (220C). Line one or two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Snap off the woody ends of the asparagus by holding the spear on each end. It will snap in the spot where the good asparagus ends and the dry part begins.
  3. Add the flour to a large plate or a low bowl and whisk the egg in another one. You want them to be wide enough to fit the whole asparagus spears.
  4. In a third plate or bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, parmesan, garlic, onion, paprika, smoked paprika, sea salt, and pepper.
  5. Dip each spear into the egg mixture first using a fork, drip any excess off, then move it over to the flour and coat lightly, then the egg again, and lastly the breadcrumb mixture. Be sure to drip off the egg well every time. If the breadcrumbs get too wet, they won’t stick to the asparagus as well. You want to press them onto the asparagus rather than rolling the asparagus around the bowl too much.
  6. Add the asparagus to the prepared baking sheet with enough space in between each spear.
  7. Roast the asparagus for 10-13 minutes or until slightly golden and crispy.
  8. Repeat with more asparagus if they all didn’t fit on one baking sheet. Keep the cooked asparagus on a large plate while you finish cooking the rest. Try not to overlap them too much while they cool so they don't lose their crispiness.
  9. Serve with house sauce or any dipping sauce of your choice.
