Baked Asparagus with Goat Cheese and Bread Crumbs
A quick and easy 4 ingredient asparagus recipe that tastes like you spent hours preparing it.
- 1-1/2 lbs jumbo or extra large asparagus, trimmed
- 2-1/4 tbs butter, melted, divided
- 2 oz fresh white goat cheese, crumbled into bits (about 1/2 cup)
- 1/2 cup fresh, white breadcrumbs
Coat asparagus spears with 1-1/2 tablespoons melted butter, then salt lightly. Arrange in an oven-to-table shallow baking dish large enough to hold the asparagus, then sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon melted butter over breadcrumbs.
Bake at 400F. until asparagus is tender-crisp and the breadcrumbs lightly browned about 10 minutes.
