Best Asparagus Recipes for Easter

Asparagus is super versatile. From fries to frittata, there are a ton of dishes you can make. 

Smother them in cheese, and everyone will devour them. Or bundle them in puff pastry for a decadent appetizer. 

With asparagus, you have plenty of options to make your holiday delicious. 

So what are you waiting for? Add a pop of color and flavor to your Easter with these asparagus recipes.

1. Asparagus Casserole 

Leave the green bean casserole for Thanksgiving. Easter is all about this asparagus casserole. 

Fresh asparagus melds deliciously with a creamy mushroom mixture.

Oh, and every forkful is also super cheesy. It even comes complete with crunchy fried onions on top.

You might be thinking it sounds an awful lot like classic green bean casserole. And you’d be right. 

But asparagus aside, there is another major difference. This recipe ditches the soup for milk and a bunch of butter. 

2. Asparagus Stuffed Chicken Breast 

Say goodbye to ham, and shake things up this Easter with this stuffed chicken breast. 

Your friends and family will marvel at this main course. 

On the outside, you have juicy chicken seasoned with paprika, garlic, and Italian seasoning. 

But a tantalizing combo of asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes, and mozzarella sits bundled up inside.

You might want to implement the use of a few toothpicks. They help keep everything together while it bakes.

3. Grilled Asparagus Caesar 

This isn’t just another easy asparagus recipe. This is one of my favorite ways to prepare asparagus!

It takes the best parts of a Caesar salad and piles it on grilled asparagus. 

The croutons are made from grilled sourdough bread. And the Caesar dressing is homemade. Doesn’t that sound fabulous?

Forget taking the regular Caesar salad route. Grilled asparagus Caesar is the twist that your Easter table needs.

4. Asparagus Puff Pastry Bundles 

Dress asparagus in its Sunday best with puff pastry. 

Puff pastry is a magical ingredient. It instantly turns any appetizer into an impressive bite. 

Just take it from these delectable bundles of goodness.

The flaky, buttery pastry houses a toothsome filling of Gruyere, prosciutto, and asparagus inside.

And it couldn’t be any easier to make!

Serve them warm out of the oven and stand back. This tasty Easter appetizer disappears fast. 

5. Garlic Shrimp Asparagus Skillet 

Are you keeping Easter low-key this year? Ditch the feast and keep it simple with this skillet. 

It’s special enough for the holiday, without all the fuss. 

Packed with succulent shrimp, fresh asparagus, mushrooms, and garlic… it’s a mouthwatering meal.

Ready in 25 minutes, it feeds a family of four, and you make it in one skillet. And you know what that means- fewer dishes to do! 

6. Sautéed Garlic Asparagus

This one of the best Easter sides. But it’s also one of the best sides for any occasion. Or a regular weeknight. 

From poultry to seafood, it pairs with a variety of proteins. And, it’s easy enough for those hectic work weeks. 

Saute the asparagus with garlic and top it with parsley. 

For a vegan version, cook it in olive oil. If you want it a little richer, add butter.

I like to top mine off with a squeeze of lemon. It accentuates the sweetness of the asparagus. 

7. Lemon Asparagus Pasta

If you only plan to make one dish for Easter, make it lemon asparagus pasta. 

Bright, cheesy, and creamy, this pasta is a prime example of spring comfort food. 

Use a whole bunch of fresh asparagus, and do not skimp on the butter. You need it for the roux and cooking the asparagus. 

It yields four big bowls or six smaller servings. 

If you’re feeling indulgent, add bacon or prosciutto. Either way, the family won’t have any complaints. They’ll be too busy eating. 

8. Cheesy Parmesan Asparagus

Everything tastes better with cheese. Asparagus included. 

It’s an easy trick to get the kids to eat their green veggies. Plus, adults love it too. 

Those tender spears smothered in a mess of gooey cheese are absolutely delish. 

Plus, it’s no strain on you. This eight-ingredient side is easy to throw together in a snap. 

Speaking of snap, roast the asparagus just until it softens. You want it to still be firm, not mushy.

9. Spring Vegetable Frittata

Don’t miss out on frittata this Easter!

I love this frittata for so many reasons. Aside from being delicious, it’s easy, wholesome, customizable, and packed with asparagus. 

The vibrant green veggies are a feast for the eyes. Just look at how ravishing they are suspended in fluffy eggs.

And the frittata is dotted with goat cheese for additional flavor. 

I’m serving it for Easter brunch. Yet, it also works for breakfast or as a dinner side. 

10. Baked Asparagus Fries 

These fries double as a side dish and appetizer alike. 

For the latter, pair them with the mustard dipping sauce. If serving them with dinner, drizzle the sauce on top.

Each thick stalk has a crisp coat of breadcrumbs, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese. So there is plenty of texture and flavor.

While the directions say to bake them, you can use the air fryer too. 

No matter how you cook them, they’ll be a hit!
