Asparagus with Mustard Bread Crumbs

Fresh asparagus is good on its own, but jazzing it up with such flavors as butter, mustard and spices only enhances its tasty goodness. This is a delicious 'jazzy' recipe!

1-1/4 pounds asparagus, trimmed and snapped

3 tbsp. butter

1/2 tbsp. Dijon mustard

1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs

Salt and pepper to taste

1 tsp. lemon juice

1. In a large nonstick skillet, add asparagus and 1/4 cup water. Cover and steam over medium-high heat until just tender (do not over cook).

2. While asparagus steams, melt light butter in a small nonstick skillet over low heat. Whisk in mustard; add bread crumbs, salt and pepper and toss to coat. Saute', stirring frequently, until the crumbs are a light golden color, about 10 minutes.

3. Drain asparagus and toss with lemon juice and mustard crumbs. Yield: 4 servings.
