“Still trying to find a way to get my husband to eat asparagus. He loves fried foods, so maybe this will work! Recipe from Paula Deen. Serve with Creole Mustard Sauce. Says it makes 12-15 servings, but that seems a little high to me. If you try this, please approximate how many servings you got out of it.”
