Looking for a simple vegetarian side dish or snack? Let me introduce you to baked asparagus fries. These “fries” are baked in the Easy Reach Toaster Oven and couldn’t be easier to make.

Baked Asparagus Fries

First, make a 2-for-1 spread that helps breadcrumbs stick to the asparagus before baking and works as an easy dip for the fries (any leftover spread would be delicious on salmon, burgers, or your favourite sandwich). You only have to dirty one bowl – score.

Baked Asparagus Fries

Mix mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, parsley, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Then brush asparagus with the mayonnaise mixture and roll in breadcrumbs (we used panko because they brown beautifully and add a nice crunch) until fully coated. The Test Kitchen found that thick asparagus work best with this recipe, so steer clear of the pencil-thin stalks you can sometimes find at the grocery store.

Baked Asparagus Fries

Place the asparagus on a baking pan and bake at 425 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes until golden brown. Finish with a squeeze of lemon and you’re ready to dip and dunk.

Whether you need a hand-held vegetarian appetizer for game day, the perfect addition to brunch, or a side dish to serve alongside fish or chicken during the week, baked asparagus fries fit the bill.

If you’re craving apple pie but don’t have the time to make one from scratch, put away the pie dish and satisfy your craving with these easy-to-make bites. They are done in about 20 minutes and are a tasty after-school snack, party dessert, or tailgate treat.

 

 

Using the SmartChop® Food Chopper or a food processor fitted with the chopping/mixing blade, coarsely chop apples (we used granny smith, but use whatever looks best at the grocery store or the cream of your apple-picking crop). With the SmartChop® attachment, the apples pass through holes as they’re chopped and fall into the bowl preventing them from over-processing and turning to mush. Use these perfectly chopped apples in the filling for your bites.

In a bowl, combine apples, cream cheese, confectioner’s sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Then unroll store-bought crescent roll dough (see – super easy) and separate into triangles.

Spread a thin layer of caramel sauce on each triangle then spoon about 2 teaspoons of the the apple mixture on top. Roll (starting from the winder end of the triangle) into a crescent shape and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Get the kids involved and let them roll while you prep the next piece of dough.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 375 degrees, until they are golden brown.

We drizzled extra caramel sauce on top before taking a bite, but you could top them with confectioner’s sugar or even a scoop of cinnamon ice cream.

 

Whenever you’re in need of a quick dessert (or dare we say breakfast) recipe this fall, keep these easy apple pie bites in mind and bring the orchard to your table in under 30 mins.
