Cheesy Air Fryer Asparagus is now our new favorite side dish!
Sounds a little odd getting excited about asparagus, but this one is covered in lots of ooey gooey melty cheese!
So it truly deserved all of the “Ohhhhh’s” and “Mmmmmm’s” at dinner last night.
I especially love making side dishes in the air fryer because it frees up the stove and oven for whatever else I’m making.
Plus it gets veggies very crisp, which is our favorite way to have veggies.
Here is how to make Cheesy Air Fryer Asparagus
This is a pound of asparagus that I trimmed the bottom inch or so off the bottom.
The bottom of asparagus can be tough so that’s why its best to trim them off.
Then I coated it in olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Next up place it the asparagus in the air fryer basket in a single layer.
Set the air fryer to 400 degrees for 8 minutes.
After 8 minutes cover it with a cup of shredded mozzarella cheese and Italian seasoning.
And back into the air fryer at 400 degrees for 2 more minutes.
As you can see, the cheese melts perfectly over the asparagus…YUM!
Cheesy Air Fryer Asparagus is already on the menu again for next week 🙂
I am pretty lucky mom that my kids will eat their veggies.
I don’t think it hurt though that they were covered in melty ooey gooey cheese 😉
