Ingredients

4 slices ham

4 slices pumpernickel bread

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 bunch pencil-thin asparagus, cleaned and thinly sliced 

1 cup shredded Taleggio cheese

Directions

  1. Fry the ham in a medium skillet until nicely warmed; set aside.
  2. Spread the pumpernickel slices with the mayonnaise.
  3. Place 2 slices of bread, mayo-side down, in the hot skillet. Divide the ham, asparagus and Taleggio between the slices. Place a second slice of bread, mayo-side up, on top. Cook, pressing down with a spatula, until golden brown on one side; flip, and continue cooking until golden brown on the reverse side and the cheese is melted.
  4. Cut in half and serve
