  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: German, Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 3 lb White asparagus
  • 2 qt Boiling water mixed with
  • 4 ts Salt
  • 1/2 c Unsalted butter
  • 2/3 c Fine,soft white bread crumbs
  • 1/2 ts Freshly ground black pepper


SNAP OFF THE WOODY ENDS of the asparagus and discard them or save them to
make soup. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the asparagus spears. Lay them
flat in a large skillet, pour in the boiling salted water, set the pan over
moderate heat, cover it, and cook the asparagus for about 5 minutes, just
until they are tender, but still crisp. Meanwhile, lightly brown the butter
in a medium skillet over moderate heat. Add the bread crumbs and pepper and
lightly toss them to mix. Reduce the heat under the skillet to low, to keep
the crumbs warm. The instant the asparagus are done, drain them well, then
return them to the skillet and shake them over moderate heat for 30 seconds
or so to dry up any excess moisture. Transfer the asparagus to a small
heated platter, then artfully arrange the crumb mixture on top.
