NJ Top Docs Presents October’s Healthy Recipe – Parmesan Baked Asparagus Fries

Parmesan Baked Asparagus Fries
















Our Marketing Coordinator, Jessica, just recently made this easy and healthy alternative for french fries this past weekend and HIGHLY recommends!

We all know you’re picking up the kids and cabbing them around to their sports and activities during the week.  Sometimes, it seems easiest to give into the allure of a quick, greasy fast-food drive-thru meal.

Replace those salty french fries with these Panko/Parmesan Baked Asparagus Fries, and you’re kids will beg for more!

  • Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper, To Taste
  • 1 Pound Asparagus, Trimmed
