Grilled Parmesan Asparagus

Rated as 4.73 out of 5 Stars

"Delicious crispy asparagus grilled on an open flame releases the flavor and makes kids love their veggies! You can add or reduce cook time to your liking. Less time will make the asparagus snap more easily, but cooking longer will make them extra crispy and delicious for dipping. Use 1/2 cup melted butter for dipping."

Fast and easy to prepare. All you need is asparagus as you most likely have all the other ingredients in the pantry.

Grilled Parmesan Asparagus Haiku: "The timing's too long. But this was still delicious. I'll do this again!" Had the grill fired up for Fathers' Day steak (for the Dad) and pork tenderloin (for ...

Very good! I added a touch of salt and felt it doesn't even need it, the parmesan does enough! Also added some black pepper. Very good :)
