Breaded Asparagus

Ingredients

  • 1 head grilled garlic
  • 3/4 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1lb asparagus
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons parsley flakes
  • 1/3 cup shredded parmasan

Directions

Step 1
Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves into a medium bowl. Add the mayonnaise and lemon juice, mashing with a fork until combined. If needed, put in a food processor to mix the aioli. Season the aioli with salt and pepper to taste.
Step 2
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Whisk together the egg whites with the mayonnaise. In a separate shallow baking dish, combine the Panko breadcrumbs, chopped parsley, Parmesan cheese, and chives.

Dip each asparagus spear in the egg mixture to thoroughly coat each spear. Mix it in the breadcrumbs making sure to firmly press so the crumbs stick well. Place the breaded asparagus on a cooking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spray all the spears with cooking spray to help the crumbs brown during cooking.
Serve with the aioli.
