These quick and easy Air Fryer Asparagus Fries are perfect for an appetizer or side dish!
The more and more that I play around with my Air Fryer, the more and more I’m loving it.
Take these deliciously crispy Asparagus Fries for example. It took me just a few minutes to coat the asparagus spears in flour, dip in some eggs and roll around in breadcrumbs, then off they went into my air fryer for just a few minutes.
Air Fryer Asparagus Fries Recipe:
- Start by washing your asparagus in water and giving them a quick pat dry. Roll them around in some all purpose flour to coat.
- Dip the asparagus into some beaten eggs, then roll around in some seasoned breadcrumbs.
- Place the asparagus fries into your air fryer in a single layer and cook just 7 minutes!
How To Cook Asparagus Fries in the Air Fryer:
- You’ll want to make sure your asparagus is in an even layer in the air fryer, leaving just enough room between the spears so they don’t touch.
- No need to spray them with oil, they will get nice and crispy in the air fryer on their own.
- My air fryer runs at 1800 watts, then I set the temperature to 400 degrees F and the timer to 7 minutes.
- Carefully remove asparagus fries with tongs as they will be very hot. Enjoy right away for best texture and taste.
Can I use my oven instead of an Air Fryer?
- Yes! If you haven’t purchased an air fryer yet, you can definitely make these in the oven instead.
- Place a cooling rack over a baking sheet and place the asparagus fries on top of the cooling rack.
- Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spritz the asparagus with non-stick spray and bake for 20 minutes, until the asparagus is crisp on the outside.
- Rotate the asparagus halfway through cooking for best texture.

I seriously could not stop eating these delicious little fries! It may sound weird, but I did dip them in ketchup, which was pretty good. But then I made a quick fry sauce, which I think was even better.
Asparagus Fries Dipping Sauce Ideas:
- Quick Fry Sauce: equal parts ketchup and mayo, plus a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce!
- Garlic Mayo: 1/4 cup mayo, plus 1 tsp garlic salt, a small squeeze of lemon juice and black pepper to taste.
- Ranch dressing!
- Can’t go wrong with just plain ol’ ketchup either.
