  4. Sprinkle with garlic salt and paprika, then with parmesan cheese and bacon.
  5. Roast on middle rack of fryer for 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Use whatever spices and seasonings you'd like for your asparagus. It's all up to preference!
  • Serve alongside the famous air fryer schnitzel for an all-around easy German meal.
  • Traditionally the asparagus would use plain salt, but I like the extra flavor of adding garlic salt.
  • I know parmesan cheese isn't German, but it really fits well here. Omit if you'd like.
  • If you have a different air fryer, follow the manufacturer's recommendations for adjusting temperatures and times.
