Cheesy Grilled Asparagus In Foil

This Cheesy Grilled Asparagus In Foil is the perfect side dish to grill up alongside dinner. We grill dinner at least once a week year-round. This is one of my favorite ways to prepare asparagus; we are lucky to get it fresh at our farm stand and the local farmer’s markets!

Asparagus is one of the vegetables the kids will eat regularly, but I can get tired of the old grilled bacon-wrapped asparagus or asparagus with bacon on the stovetop. The first time the old lady did this in the oven, I thought I could do that: don’t the grill!

I made this on my Monument Grils 35633. I shared my full Monument Grill review before (you can see it -> here), but the window is still my favorite part of the grill! You can order one from Monument Grills, Amazon, Wayfair, or Home Depot!

Cheesy Grilled Asparagus ingredients

Asparagus– Using fresh Asparagus is best for this recipe. Grab from the grocery store or a farm stand. Canned or frozen asparagus will not work well for this recipe; it will turn out mushy.

Parmesan Cheese– Freshly grated parmesan cheese will work best since it will melt. The Kraft Parmesan cheese will not melt well over the asparagus.

Olive Oil– You can use Garlic Olive Oil; you won’t need much.

Garlic Salt– Regular or sea salt can be used instead of garlic salt.

Black Pepper

how to grill asparagus in foil

First, you will need to trim your asparagus.  I have found the easiest way to do this is to snap the asparagus where it gives; I typically do this by bending both ends to find its break point. This gets rid of the woody steam at the end of the stalk.

You can use a cutting board and knife and pick a point to cut at; either method of timing asparagus works.

Rinse the asparagus off and allow it to dry. I allow it to drip dry in an over-the-sink strainer. Washing the asparagus removes dirt on the stalk of the asparagus and the feathery part.

Fire up your grill to a medium-low heat. I did this heat while making Grilled Salmon with the asparagus; I didn’t want to cook hot.

Lay out tin foil to make a foil packet for the asparagus. You can use a grilling mat if you don’t want to use tinfoil.

Spray the tin oil or grilling mat with a nonstick spray or rub with some oil.

Trimmed asparagus on Tin Foil

Spread your asparagus out on the tin foil.  You will not want them bunched up right on each other for roasting. You may need to make more than one foil packet.

Drizzle some olive oil over the top of the asparagus.

Sprinkle to taste with garlic, salt, and pepper onto the asparagus.

Make a foil packet to seal in the asparagus. I did leave a bit of a vent, but the packet will allow the asparagus to steam.

Place the packet on the upper rack and cook for 10 minutes.

Remove the packet and open it carefully with tongs or oven gloves.

Sprinkle with cheese and reseal. Put it back on the grill or let it melt off the grill if your foil is hot enough and the asparagus is done.

Remove and serve!

How Long to Grill Asparagus

Your asparagus will only need 5 to 7 minutes on a higher heat.

Since I was doing a lower heat, I did 10 minutes before removing it. I knew it would have the heat of the pack to keep cooking in the heat as it cooled.

If using a grilling mat, I would grill for 10 minutes, add the cheese, and then leave it on the grill for another 5 minutes to allow it to melt the cheese.

How To Store Grilled Asparagus

Allow the leftover oven-baked asparagus to cool properly, then move it into an airtight container or bag. Store in the fridge for up to three days.

How To Reheat Leftover Cheesy Grilled Asparagus

The easiest way to reheat leftover asparagus is in the microwave or an air fryer. If you want, you can heat the oven to 400 degrees and reheat it that way. Either way, I recommend a smidge more cheese to melt; trust me, it will be tasty.
