  2. Dip asparagus in beaten egg.
  3. Roll and coat asparagus in a layer of breadcrumbs.

  5. Stir mayonnaise, green chilies, and hot pepper sauce together in a small bowl for dipping sauce.
  6. Heat vegetable oil in a fry pan over medium heat.
  7. Fry coated asparagus in the hot oil until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Serve immediately with dipping sauce.

You lose too much of the asparagus flavor. I'm sure to make the dip for get togethers again, it was delicious.

So good!! I also used seasoned bread crumbs and i added garlic powder to the flour

Very nice twist on asparagus.I did make two substitutions though.I used Panko bread crumbs and for the sauce I used 2tbls. Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce instead of green chilis.It was awesome!

I also seasoned the flour with seasoned salt and onion salt. Used 1/2 breadcrumbs and 1/2 Panko mix. It was fabulous! Dip in ranch dressing for a great appetizer!!!

Excellent! But really how can you go wrong with breading and frying something? My asparagus was very young and thin so it cooked quickly and was delicious. I will do this again. Thanks!

Didn't change a thing and it was soooo good! My husband says this one is definitely a keeper.

Great taste and directions. It was the first time I could get my toddler and husband to each asparagus! Thank you!

We didn't think we liked asparagus, but now we know we do! I didn't have bread crumbs, so I had to toast whole wheat bread and crumble it up. It still turned out really well.

It was delicious! The only thing I did different was add seasoning and garlic salt to the flour! ??
