Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Breadcrumbs

My new favorite thing is making fresh Parmesan Breadcrumbs. You cook fresh breadcrumbs on the stove top with butter and olive oil until golden brown and toasty, then you add in lots of Parmesan cheese and the Parmesan clusters together with the breadcrumbs to create cheesy clusters of hot crunchy bread and cheese. It's good on pasta dishes and great on green veggies! Give it a try on asparagus like I've done here, or on broccoli! It's delicious!

Serves 4

1 pound asparagus, trimmed

1 tablespoon olive oil

salt and freshly cracked black pepper

1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon olive oil

For the Asparagus: Preheat the oven to 400F. Snap or cut the dry steam ends off each asparagus and place on a heavy baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss. Roast until the asparagus is tender, about 15 minutes. 

For the Parmesan Breadcrumbs: Add 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil to a medium skillet and allow butter to melt. Add breadcrumbs and cook, stirring, until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Add in Parmesan cheese, stirring, allowing the Parmesan to marry with the breadcrumbs and create clusters. 

Plate the asparagus and arrange the Parmesan Breadcrumbs over the asparagus. Enjoy!
