Baked Asparagus Fries with Garlic Aioli Sauce

There is nothing better than good food and friends, and this week’s Progressive Dinner includes just that. I’m very excited to be sharing these great foods with you. Mine is all the way down below, but let me share theirs first.

Jen from Juanita’s Cocina will have her Portabella and Goat Cheese Tart waiting for us.  Mmmm… I am in love with Portabella’s.

Then Pam, over at  The Meltaways is serving her Slow Cooked Lasagna Soup.  Sounds so delicious! (sorry link is no longer available because blog is gone)

My friend Angie, from Big Bears Wife, who I also host This Week’s Cravings with each week,  is treating us to her Crock Pot Roast Beef.  Her recipes are always amazing, so I’m sure this one will be so good!

I’m bringing the side dish… Baked Asparagus Fries with a Roasted Garlic Aioli.  You’ll find that below. I know the photos are terrible, and I hope to update them one day. But don’t let them deter you from an absolutely fab side dish. They were incredible!

The perfect ending to a perfect meal around your table, should always end with a fabulous Dessert.  Carla from Chocolate Moosey was the obvious choice for Yummy Banana Cupcakes.  Mmmmmm….

Baked Asparagus Fries with Garlic Aioli Sauce

Baked Asparagus Fries with Garlic Aioli Sauce

Yield: 2 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


For the Asparagus Fries:

  • 1 bunch asparagus, washed and trimmed
  • 2 egg whites, beaten lightly
  • ½ c. flour
  • ½ c. panko bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 Tbs. grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil

For the Aioli Sauce

  • ¾ c. mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbs. minced garlic
  • 2 ½ Tbs. lemon juice
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper


For the Asparagus:

  1. Brush your baking pan lighting with olive oil to prepare it, and set it aside.
  2. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  3. Place the lightly beaten egg whites in a shallow dish.
  4. In another bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Roll each asparagus spear in enough egg whites to coat the entire stalk and then place it directly into the next bowl of dry panko mixture and roll the spear until it’s completely covered with the panko mixture.
  6. Place each spear your prepared baking dish.
  7. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until the asparagus is crispy on the outside but still slightly firm on the inside. It might need a little more time depending on the size of the asparagus spear.

For the Aioli

  1. Mix mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a bowl or in the blender. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving to allow all the ingredients to marry the flavors together.
  2. Serve with the Baked Asparagus Fries or any anything else you feel like dipping! So yummy!

Your recipe is very similar to mine but I have always fried my asparagus spears. Will definitely switch to your method because it is lower calories. Thanks.

We've deep fried asparagus before and it was insanely good, just not kind to the waistline. These look just as good without all the guilt!

Isabel, you simply must try them. They are very easy and so delicious and full of fresh flavors. Love them. We probably eat them a bit too often, but since my kids love asparagus done this way or roasted with pepper, I'll keep making them to get those veggies into their growing bodies. haha xoxo Thank you for hosting #SundaySupper - it's always such a blast and I get some of the tastiest recipes to try from the others.

I love doing this with different veggies, but asparagus is by far our favorite. Thank you so much for stopping by and I look forward to our next #SundaySupper, Carla.
