"Great recipe for the air-fryer, but can also be baked in the oven. I've classified as an appetizer, but also makes a good side dish. This is one of the few recipes where it's ok to use the canned green stuff they call parmesan cheese. LOL... Recipe from Skinny Taste"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Prepare the asparagus by breaking off the tough ends. Not necessary, but if desired, shave the tougher skin off the thickest part of each spear.

Step 2

In a large shallow bowl, combine the panko and parmesan cheese. Set aside.

Step 3

In another large shallow bowl, combine the eggs and flour. Whisk well.

Step 4

Dip one spear at a time into the egg/flour mixture, turning to coat. Then dip in the panko mixture, turning to coat. Spray generously with olive oil and place the spear in the air fryer basket.

Step 5

Repeat with remaining spears, making sure they are placed in an even layer in the basket.

Step 6

Turn air-fryer to 380 F, then air fry the asparagus for 6-7 minutes, flipping halfway through. Fry until golden and tender.

To Oven Fry:

Step 7

Preheat oven to 425 F while preparing the asparagus. Spray a sheet pan with oil and place the breaded asparagus on it in an even layer. Spray the asparagus with olive oil and bake 12-14 minutes, turning halfway through, until golden and tender.
