Crispy Asparagus with Sriracha Mayo

Fresh asparagus is probably my all-time favorite vegetable.  I usually roast it in the oven and it always turns out delicious. But, sometimes I just need a little more crunch. That’s when I make my Crispy Asparagus with Sriracha Mayo. It’s still roasted in the oven, but it takes asparagus up a few notches.

When I was in Publix a few days ago, I made sure Progresso® Panko Crispy Bread Crumbs was on my grocery list so I could make crispy asparagus.

The Story Behind Progresso

I always like to learn the story behind a product; how it came to be, etc.  Here’s the story behind Progresso®:

In the late 1800s in the small Sicilian village of Salemi, young Giuseppe Uddo grew up surrounded by the authentic flavors and traditions of classic Italian cooking. At age 9, he quit school to help support his family by visiting nearby villages to sell olives and cheeses from a horse-drawn cart.

The Progresso Name

Here’s the condensed version from Progresso’s website, “After World War I, Giuseppe’s operations expanded to include a factory in California, which became the first plant in the United States to make canned foods that were previously available only in Italy. Giuseppe soon partnered with his wife’s cousins and expanded from Louisiana to connect with food-loving Italian communities in New York City. They decided to name their new joint venture Progresso.

Today, more than 100 years after Giuseppe Uddo’s first journey to America, Progresso keeps finding new ways to deliver quality meals that match the unique needs of individuals and families. Progresso’s Heart Healthy soups offer tasty, ready-to-serve options for those with dietary goals.

The Progresso Light line is the only soup brand endorsed by Weight Watchers. The introduction of broths and foods such as Panko bread crumbs also deliver premium ingredients for everyday cooking.

Progresso Panko Bread Crumbs, a Japanese-style bread crumb with larger flaky crumbs, creates a light and crunchy coating that is perfect for breading fish, poultry, seafood and vegetables. It can be used to add a delicious crispy topping on baked dishes such as macaroni, casseroles and even works well on many desserts.”
