Spring Panini Recipe: Celebrate Asparagus Season With This Ham & Asparagus Panini Sandwich

Produce departments are overflowing with spring asparagus. Try some fresh asparagus recipes this year, starting with this easy asparagus and ham panini recipe.

If you don't have a panini maker, simply weigh down the sandwich with a heavy skillet or even a heavy can of vegetables. Weighing the sandwich down helps it get crispy and delicious!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 1


  • 6 stalks asparagus spears, trimmed and steamed until crisp-tender
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 slices ciabata bread, french bread, sandwich rolls, etc.
  • sliced Muenster, mozzarella, Swiss or Gruyere cheese
  • sliced ham (about 1/4 pound)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Place the bread on a work surface. Spread with the mayonnaise and Dijon. Layer on the ham, then asparagus, then the cheese. Top with the second piece of bread.
  2. Cook the sandwich in a panini press or in a hot skillet until bread is crisp and cheese has melted. If cooking in a skillet, weigh the sandwich down with another heavy skillet or push with a spatula.
