    Annacia's Note:

    It was lunch time, I looked in the fridge and found left over cooked ham and asparagus. Hummm, why not! It turned out great and lighter than the usual grilled sandwich.

      Loved it! Made as posted. Going into my "cookbook for two". Great way to use leftover asparagus! Did ours in Foreman. Thanks for sharing Annacia.
