This cheesy and crispy asparagus dish is the perfect accompaniment to any meal.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Place flour in a shallow dish. Place egg in a second shallow dish. In a food processor combine panko, cheese and pepper. Cover and pulse until fine crumbs form. Transfer mixture to a third shallow dish.
Roll each asparagus spear in flour. Dip in egg, then roll in panko mixture to coat. Place 1/2 inch apart on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with any remaining panko mixture and lightly coat with cooking spray.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until asparagus is tender and coating is light brown. Serve warm with Garlic-Mayo Dipping Sauce.
