J1 we called them a Jaffle iron, you can still buy them in camping stores. Toastie Pies are great and we often have them for lunch in the winter.

A Jaffle is a toasted sandwich. It is what I grew up knowing them as. I imagine it is the same as a Jiffy. Here is the link to the Jaffle iron.

Yep, my Jiffy iron looks just like a Jaffle iron.

In Canada they're Bush Pies. Following that logic, ours would have to have been Lounge Pies smiling bouncing smiley

In America it's the Pudgie Pie [community.deergear.com] but also called the Hobo Pie.

APPARENTLY, Jaffle is the Australian term....... [en.wikipedia.org]

In my family in the sixties we called them toasties. The fillings were creamed corn or whole egg or cheese and bacon.

Still got two "toastie pie" makers here. Inherited my Mum's and bought one at a garage sale when the kids were small. Fillings, cheese and pineapple; egg and bacon; creamed corn, cheese and ham; or apple sprinkled with icing sugar.
Yes I'm familiar with "Jaffle" as an Aussie term, I thought it was a brand name for an electronic version of a full, sealed around the edges, toasted sandwich.

We had a manual one in England and we called them toastie pies, I'm sure. Ours had a round head, long handles and maroon enameled handles. The shape was very reminiscent of the old fashoined warming pans they used to put coals into then run them up and down between the sheets before getting into bed on a cold winter night! I've still got my first electric toastie-pie maker, a square, double-headed one that doesn't cut the toasties in half (can get more filling in!) It's still going strong, especially in winter. I often use some of last night's left over casserole or roast and make a toastie-pie and perhaps some soup to go with it. Yum!

I don't think we still have our old toastie pie irons, unless they are lurking somewhere down in the garage. My husband always used to call them Quixies, I never got used to that name and refused to call them as such. Occasionally I would use pastry instead of bread and thought they tasted something like the Georgie Pies.

Ah well there we are, we have another name for them now too except it's apparently spelt Quicksie (instead of Quixies):

Ignoring my typo, obviously my husband had picked up the word from his father and I was thinking it must have come from his soldiering days. Thanks J1. I think I'll still call them toastie pies. smiling smiley

Mince on toast smiling smiley? You all are talking about a dish which is not invented in Poland yetsmiling smiley. For toasts we still use cheese, ham and mushroom.

The Guardian ran an opinion piece on it - NZ pops up - "And so it took a friend, an ally, to stand up for the maligned, forgotten mince on toast. New Zealand, land of lamb mince and friendly Hobbit-sized bakers, laid claim to the dish on Wednesday. With tears in their eyes, bursting with national pride, Aucklanders and Wellingtoners posted pictures of their many mince-on-toast meals: breakfast mince on toast with egg; chilli mince on toast for the experimental; venison mince on focaccia for the New Zealand version of Jay Rayner. Such ingenuity, such vision, put us sneering Brits to shame."

I did enjoy reading that, J1.
I will send the link on to my Paris/London based niece who has lived there for many decades. She will love it.
