8 Unique Asparagus Recipes

My husband loves asparagus. I swear, I think he would eat it for every meal. However, sometimes we both get tired of eating the same, old thing. I am always on the lookout for new recipes. I have curated this list of 15 unique asparagus recipes that will you and your family will sure to love. We have tried them all, and I can assure you that none of them will disappoint!

1. Crack Asparagus

I have tried this recipe, and I love it so much! Bacon and ranch?? What could possibly be wrong about! It’s so savory, easy and delicious.

2. Asparagus Gruyere Tart

This one is so good. I made this recipe one Saturday morning for a late breakfast/early lunch. However, I didn’t use gruyere cheese. I used a mixture of mozzarella and parmesan. The recipe calls for any white cheese. It was still delicious. Right when it came out of the oven, I sprinkled it with coarse sea salt and cracked black pepper. I also brushed it will melted butter. That really complimented the warm puff pastry and cheese!

3. Garlic Asparagus Pasta Recipe

I made this recipe one night as a main dish for dinner. I actually used penne pasta and it worked just fine. Its a really simple, and quick dinner meal. I served it with a side, Italian salad. It turned out to be a really delicious meal, and something I’m keeping in my queue for a quick weeknight recipe.

4. Asparagus Egg and Bacon Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette

I honestly think of all the recipes in this list, this one was my favorite. It can seem somewhat daunting and complicated, but its actually a very simple recipe! This would be perfect to make for hosting a dinner party if you want to “wow” your guests!

These are really tasty and easy to make. I took these over to a dinner party one night as just an appetizer/finger food. They were a big hit! They are just a little more creative than just your average sausage balls and chips and dip.

6. Creamy Italian Baked Asparagus

This is a very delicious twist to a traditional asparagus side. I served this along with filet mignons that my husband grilled in our broiler. It was a perfect feel-good side. I mean, anything with that much cheese and heavy cream has no choice but to be delicious. I actually may or may not have had two servings.

7. Asparagus Casserole

This is a perfect twist to grandma’s classic green bean casserole. It’s actually a lot more decadent than you’re average green bean casserole. The base or “roux” is homemade with flour, so there is not any cream of chicken or cream of mushroom needed! The swiss cheese adds a unique sweetness to the casserole as well.

8. Baked Parmesan Asparagus Fries

These fries are actually really addictive. My toddler even approved of these! I served them with some baked chicken strips one night for a weekday dinner. I accompanied them with some homemade ranch dressing and it was perfect!
