Asparagus, Fontina, and Speck Ham Panini

Speck is arguably one of the most under-appreciated cured meats. This gooey, pressed sandwich is an easy way to appreciate it.

Get ready for panini-perfection. Grab a bunch of asparagus spears, a loaf of Italian bread, grated Fontina cheese, and few slices of speck. Do you know speck? Speck is, essentially, smoked prosciutto ham. It’s totally delicious, for the record, but if you can’t find it, regular prosciutto will still make a very worthy sandwich.
