      I was frying up pork chops and didn't want all that hot oil in the deep fryer to go to waste, so when I checked the fridge for another side dish to go with our broccoli. Then I immediately saw the asparagus spears and searched for a recipe like this one. They were a delicious change to my usual 'roasted-in-the-oven variety'. I used seasoned Italian breadcrumbs and didn't even need to blanche the asparagus first. Even my 5yo enjoyed them - now that's a good review! Thanks so much :)

      This is the very recipe I have in a cookbook dating from 1947.
