Fried Asparagus

I’ve never had asparagus fried before – I tried this recipe and loved it!

1 pound of asparagus, trimmed.
1 medium egg.
4 ounces of freshly-grated romano cheese.
1 cup of fine dry breadcrumbs.
1 tablespoon of milk.
Olive oil, for frying.
Salt and pepper.

In boiling, salted water, cook the asparagus spears until just tender.

Drain on paper towels.

In a bowl, beat the egg with milk.

Dip the asparagus in the egg/milk mix, then into the breadcrumbs.

Heat enough olive oil to cover the asparagus in a deep fryer or a large skillet.

Fry the asparagus until lightly browned.

Drain on paper towels.

Season with your desired amount of salt and pepper.

Sprinkle with grated romano cheese.

Welcome to Food Recipes Online

Thanks for visiting my new blog! On here I’ll be posting some free recipes that I’ve found and tested. My first entry will be for the delicious dark chocolate cake I had earlier today:


4 large eggs.
3 cups of flour.
2 ½ cups of granulated sugar.
2 cups of water.
1 cup of unsweetened cocoa.
1 cup of butter.
2 teaspoons of baking powder.
½ teaspoon of salt.
½ teaspoon of baking soda.


Preheat oven to 350F.

Grease cake pans or cupcake moulds.

Cream the butter and granulated sugar.

Add the cocoa to the cream.

Add the eggs, one at a time, creaming well after each is added.

Sift together the dry ingredients.

Add half of the dry ingredients and mix, then add the water, then add the remainder of the dry ingredients. Mix until blended.

Pour into pans or moulds and bake for about 40 minutes.

Allow to cool before turning out and serving.

I found this dark chocolate cake recipe at Chocolate Recipes .biz – try their Missippi mud cake recipe too – it was delicious.
