I make this for just about every holiday. The most recent time was Easter. We also just make a Costco sized bag of it for dinner sometimes, and eat the whole tray!!
First off – does everyone know you have to cut or break off the ends of the asparagus? Well you do, the ends are tough and “woody”.
I have always been told that asparagus “knows” where to break.
I had Russell help, for the sake of pictures for the blog. Check out those tough working hands!!! HUBBA HUBBA
Lay the asparagus on the tray – because I am annoying, I make sure they are all going the same direction.
I just sprinkle with Salt and Pepper and then olive oil.
Place in 400 degree oven. Check every few minutes, but it typically takes about 25 minutes. I sort of stir them around every so often though – I probably like them browner than most people…but they get so crispy and yummy when they are brown!
