Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease or line with parchment a large baking sheet.
In a wide shallow dish or bowl beat eggs and milk together. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl toss the cheese, bread crumbs and lemon together. Add half to a separate wide, shallow dish (add more from the bowl as needed - if you don't use them all you can save them for another use).
Working a few at time dunk the stalks in the egg, allow excess to drip off then coat with crumbs using your hands to pat them on. Set on baking sheet.
Bake until golden brown and fork tender 20 - 25 minutes. Serve as is or with lemon vinaigrette.
To make the vinaigrette pulse the oil, lemon juice and mustard together in a food processor, mix in garlic and season to taste with salt and pepper.
