Making asparagus ”breadsticks”
“Dip the asparagus first into the flour, then the egg and finally into the bread crumb mixture.”
I’m skeptical that flour will stick to a smooth asparagus.
Flour will stick to meat, maybe because of surface moisture— though doubt wet vegetables would get an even flour coating. Maybe flour is lipophilic?
Getting back to breading the asparagus—should I try the egg first? Or maybe coating asparagus with butter then doing flour, egg, breadcrumb?
