Baked Asparagus Fries, a yummy, healthier version to french fries with a delicious mustard dipping sauce! The perfect recipe for an appetizer, side, and more!

Overhead close up of Baked Asparagus Fries.

I LOVE asparagus, it is one of our favorite veggies. But, sometimes just sauteing it can get boring, I mean who doesn’t like to switch up their recipes from time to time.

So, as you all know I love finger foods, and I knew Baked Asparagus Fries would be a great addition to any meal. Especially now if you’re counting those calories and trying to shed a few pounds.

Baking the asparagus like this makes them have a crunchy outside and pairing it with a whole grain mustard dipping sauce just makes them even more irresistible!

These are a go-to snack, appetizer, or side dish for us with so many different meals. They are super easy to put together and take minimal ingredients.

They also taste amazing as well, so there is always the perk with that one. Easy and flavorful, how can you go wrong with that combination? You really can’t.

Some of my other favorite hand-held foods we have on our site include: Parmesan Potatoes, Easy Deviled Eggs and Twisted Chorizo Breadsticks.

ARE THESE STILL CRISPY AFTER THEY ARE BAKED?

Yes! They will still be crispy with the coating but the asparagus will be cooked through but not soggy. 

It is the perfect combination of crispy and tender altogether.

DO I HAVE TO USE PANKO BREADCRUMBS?

No, you do not have to use panko, we use panko because it provides a really crisp outer coating on these. You can use regular breadcrumbs but it will just not be as crisp.

CAN I DOUBLE THIS RECIPE?

Absolutely, if you are planning on doubling this recipe I would recommend using a larger pan or baking these in batches so they are not overcrowded.

We want the texture to stay the same with each fry so if you overcrowd they will cook unevenly.

HOW TO STORE:

These can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator where they will keep for up to 2-3 days. They will lose some crispness so I recommend reheating in the oven until heated through and crispy.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • Make sure you trim your asparagus, you do not want the woody ends.
  • You can use regular breadcrumbs, see my tips above.
  • Use your favorite dipping sauces for this.
  • This recipe can be doubled.

    First, thanks so much for the recipe. I’ve made these before and love them. But I’m cooking for a large crowd. Can I prepare these ahead of time and bake them at the last minute?

  6. Joan Doelger says:

    Thank you so much for the reply.
    I’m actually going to serve them in a salad. I’m thinking of adding Dijon mustard to the egg mix for the mustard flavor.

  7. WOAH, now that sounds amazing, I might have to steal that idea, lol!

    😋 I will let you know how it turns out!
