Roasty toasty broiled asparagus

Want the most delicious way to give yourself stinky pee?  Broiled asparagus is the way to go.  Asparagus season is so short, and I try to enjoy every second of it.  This method guarantees a tasty dish, and better yet, it takes less than 15 minutes to put together.

Broiled Asparagus
-Asparagus (duh)
-1 to 2 tblsp of olive oil
-1 tblsp McCormick’s Montreal Steak Seasoning (we get it at Costco and use it on everything)

1) Put the oven rack as high as it can go, and set your oven to broil.

2) Hold one stalk of asparagus, and try to snap the end off.  Where it snaps is the natural breaking point.  I then cut all the ends off at about the same point.

3) Put the asparagus on a baking sheet, and drizzle with olive oil, and then the steak seasoning.  Use a spatula or wooden spoon to “toss” the stalks to combine the olive oil and seasoning.


4) Broil until the tips are crispy, and the stalks are sizzling.  It typically takes about 7-10 minutes depending on the width of the stalks.

Pair with any side dish.  Or, if you are like my sister and me, just stand in the kitchen over the pan and eat them straight from the oven.

You know, hypothetically.

  1. This is my favorite way to fix asparagus, too. And I may or may not have eaten an entire pan, snatching at steaming hot spears with bare fingers as they were right out of the oven. May. But I’m not admitting to anything.

  2. That’s my favorite way to make asparagus. Have you ever tried Morton’s Natures Seasoning? It is the best seasoning ever. Really. We go through a canister every two weeks. I put it on absolutely every savory dish I make.

  3. First time I ever tried asparagus was about 5 or 6 years ago at my part time job and I’ve been hooked. It’s so delicious. I have not bought it fresh to cook it (actually, I’ve only cooked with it once, from a can), but this way sounds like a great way to make it.

  4. A drizzle of balsamic and oil is pretty great too.

  5. Mmmmmm this is my favorite, favorite way to do asparagus!! I use sea salt and garlic powder though, and looove to throw it on the grill in the summer!! Totally worth hearing my husband and children say, “my pee smells funny” afterword!!

  6. I make this exact recipe, except with McCormick’s Montreal Chicken Seasoning – haha.

  7. S&P with Garlic and a sprinkle of Parm at the very last minute is how we do it at our house, and I am totally guilty of eating over the pan too!
