Martha Does it Again

Martha Stewart is often the butt of jokes to people who just don't understand her.



They see her as a Stepford Wife . . .


. . . or a money-hungry powerhouse.


Personally I could care less. She has a nice aesthetic and a wonderful taste. More than once she has done me well with a new recipe: like these asparagus with breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. Now that spring has come and asparagus doesn't cost $6/lb (I won't pay more than $3/lb) I buy it as often as possible.

So I bought a pound and wasn't sure what to do with it. So I Googled"Martha Stewart Asparagus" and found this delicious recipe. Here is her original and below is how I altered it (slightly).


I couldn't find the picture I took of the asparagus I cooked
so I borrowed this one from here.
Asparagus with Breadcrumbs and Parmesan

Ingredients:
1 lb asparagus
2 cups panko bread crumbs
1-2 cups grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Snap ends of asparagus.
2. Mix bread crumbs, parmesan and salt/pepper
3. Lay asparagus down on baking sheet, sprinkle with breadcrumb mixture
4. Put into preheated over (450*) for 10-20 minutes (depending on the thickness of asparagus) - asparagus should be fork tender and the breadcrumb mixture should be golden brown.

Serve hot.

  1. Yum that looks delicious! I may definitely have to give that recipe a try.

    I adore Martha. She has amazing taste and tasty recipes! As far as I'm concerned she made a mistake and she paid for it. I think its about time people let it go.

    Happy Wednesday!
