Roasted Asparagus with Lemon-Rosemary Breadcrumbs
Fresh, homemade breadcrumbs might just be the most life-altering culinary discovery of my year.
Add those to one of my favorite veggies and we gotta home run.
Roasting asparagus brings out its natural sweetness. The yumminess starts with a simple toss in olive oil, a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
And the fresh breadcrumbs. Oh yes..yes..yes.
I use my Cuisinart for homemade breadcrumbs. SO easy and quick! Throw in a couple slices of any bread you prefer, lemon zest, some chopped rosemary (or any fresh herb), salt, pepper, a clove of garlic...and yep, a pat or two of BUTTER. And...mix!
Just don't leave out the butter. Just don't.
Sprinkle your gorgeous homemade breadcrumbs on top of the fresh asparagus. Roast in a 425 degree oven until golden. Finish off with an extra grate of lemon zest and eat up immediately!
Wonder what my favorite side dish was for our Easter dinner...hmmm..
