Now I'm thinking asparagus poutine...

Asparagus season is only 6 weeks, so I tend to think to savor it as steamed asparagus.

S&P - looks awesome! A couple of questions. I have seen another recipe where they used on the egg white. Do you use the whole egg? Just be sure - you bake it after the breading - correct?

Interesting, but there is a part of me that says "why would you do that to asparagus when it is so very good steamed al dente?"
I like asparagus most any way you can make them.
Tossed with EVOO salt pepper and a super hot grill taking first place for me.

I also will try this dish. Thanks S&P.

The only way I won't cook it is with water. Even with steaming, it stands to reason you get asparagus flavored water that way.

I saw this done on either America's Test Kitchen or Cook's Country, using the egg whites and panko crumbs. Looked interesting but....

Sorry, I also thought why they would cover the flavor of fresh asparagus at this time of the year. Love it steamed, also love to have it hit boiling water for less than a minute and shock it in ice water, drain, and use it on a fresh veggie tray.

I might try that with out of season asparagus but right now it's fresh steamed only here.

Here are some other ways to eat asparagus.

A Few Bunches of Asparagus, 5 Dinners - Easy Weeknight Cooking

I typically don't buy asparagus--only forage for it. I am going tomorrow afternoon with a friend on her back 40. There are several patches. Should I get enough to grow tired of it steamed, I will possibly grill some and top with a poached egg (I rather doubt that will be the case).

Thank you so much for this.

Asparagus is great no matter how it's fixed.

I usually grill it with a little EVOO & S&P. Steamed is lovely too.

But I'm going to try this because it just sounds really tasty.

I'll bet it's even a good way to fix canned asparagus. I know, I know. Who get canned asparagus? Well I did awhile ago because the price was right.

Going to try egg whites tonight, I'll let you know how they come out.

Egg whites did a better job of coating the panko, crispy outside and tender inside.
For those of you who only eat steamed, you don't know what your missing. I eat them so many different ways and the are always tasty. When I pick a batch, I boil them for 1 minute, then shock them in ice water and finally seal them in the food saver. Works for me.
