Here is a preview recipe!

These are like popcorn or potato chips. You can't eat just one. Mathgeekboy and I stood over the stove, burning our fingers, eating them fresh out of the pan:
  1. Preheat broiler to 500F. Set top rack about 4" from heating element.
  2. Break off woody ends of asparagi. Toss with olive oil, salt, and lots of pepper in a roasting pan.
  3. Broil for 4 minutes. Shake the pan. Broil for 4 more minutes.
  4. Let cool enough so that you don't burn yourself.
The tops get fried-crunchy and the bodies are tender-crisp and delicious. You can add spices (on the second batch, we tried rosemary and thyme, and it was good) or I bet sesame seeds would be nummy. Something other than olive oil would be good (just keep in mind smoke points; butter may or may not burn). The hardest part is the "waiting for them to cool enough" part.

Recipe from The Best Recipe cookbook by Cook's Illustrated.

I am not sure what the makeup of this community will end up being, so if you need more cooking details or explanations, I am happy to provide them.
