- 1 - 1-1/2 lb. asparagus, trimmed
- 2-1/2 tbsp. melted butter
- 1/2 c. plain or herb goat cheese, crumbled
- 1/2 c. fresh panko breadcrumbs
Toss asparagus spears with 1-1/2 tablespoons butter.
Arrange in an oven-to-table shallow baking dish large enough to hold the asparagus in 1 layer. Sprinkle evenly with goat cheese, then sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon melted butter over breadcrumbs.
Bake at 400º F. until asparagus is tender crisp and the breadcrumbs lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
