Garlicky Baked Asparagus

Well, well, it’s time for this month’s Fantastical Food Fight!  I didn’t participate last month, I totally had a recipe ready to go, then I completely flaked out and didn’t post it at all.  Ahh!  Silliness!

Anyway, I’m back and ready to go for this month’s Asparagus food fight! 

I love asparagus.  The kids…not so much.  They’ll grudgingly eat it, but still call it “ick-sparagus” Haha – we’ll get there one of these days!

Normally, I just sauté asparagus and season it with salt and pepper, because sometimes simple is best.

For this challenge I went for oven roasted, plus garlic and fried onions!  It was definitely delicious and the kids judged it “a bit better than usual” haha – tough crowd!

Check out the rest of the wonderful asparagus dishes after the recipe!

  1. Love the addition of french fried onions. Going to have to try that.

  2. I never thought about adding fried onions. This looks good. Is that a Silpat mat you are baking on? I love mine.

  3. Ooooh, your asparagus is such a lovely color, and you had me at fried onions! I'd eat them on dessert if I could (almost).

  4. I love roasting asparagus but never thought to top it with fried onions.

  5. I love oven roasted asparagus - it's probably my favorite way to prepare it. Always with s&p, garlic, and dried minced onions, but I will for sure have to try French-fried onions - YUM!

  6. Adding fried onions to anything and I am over the moon! I am going to try this!
