For me, asparagus is not only a sign that warmer weather is on its way, it's also a memory. My grandpa knew where to find wild asparagus – which he jokingly called "asper-grass" – and if we visited during the spring he would take us along on his treks through the wilds of the western Minnesota prairie.
This week, make some memories of your own by whipping up a batch of this delicious breaded asparagus. My family loved it, and I loved telling them stories about my charming and delightful grandpa. If you can't take a prairie trek to find some wild asparagus, just take a trek to the grocery store and get wild by using purple or white asparagus!
