Fave Toasted Sandwich combo???
May 19, 2008 04:18AM
Quick and easy for lunch on the weekend etc, being a non-meat eater for me usually means cheese and???(leftover mashed potato and cheese, yum!). Being nosey here and want to know what others might put together as a quick gastronomic treat? Is the humble toastie NZ unique? Remember having grilled cheese and banana on toast at a cafe` in Surfers many years ago, and have done that combo as a toastie too.
...Off to fire up the frypan,

Nothing gastronomic about this one but I love creamed corn and cheese!

Somtimes I also do caramelised onion jam with mozzarella cheese and ham.

peanut butter and banana - but only with vogels (a la Elvis)

cheese and beetroot

or egg and s&p


and the most popular toasted sandwich at our resort was tuna cheese and onion

Funnily enough I just finished a toasted sandwich for lunch, Helen's favourite, sweetcorn and cheese, plus I added a bit of baby spinach on health grounds! I also love just plain old cheese and tomato.

In the old toastie machine that seals the bread, I love an egg with S & P, and in the sandwich press I love cheese onion/bacon and ham

Our kids love spaghetti (from the can), with a bit of cheese too.

I've recently tried egg, and love that, and so does DH. Just have to cook it slightly longer, until its a dark golden brown, so that the egg isn't too runny and falls out, when you bite into it.

When we use the sandwich press and are hankering for egg, we lightly fry our eggs in a non stickk pan and ad them into the sammie with bacon/ham etc. The final little bit of cooking finishes the egg. We dont like runny eggs in our toasties.

Just thought I'd revive this thread as I have just bought a new toastie (jaffle) maker and thrown out my old never-shuts-properly, hard-to-clean, pushes-the bread-forward-as-you-close-it jaffle maker. I LOVE my new one. It just shows you what a role good design can play, even in a humble jaffle maker.

My fave filling is an egg cracked directly onto the bottom slice of bread and with a shake of salt & pepper over the top before you put the other bit of bread on. I suppose you could add lots of other things to it but I love the way the jaffle maker cooks the egg perfectly and it's so easy.

I made some peach pies with a sheet of puff pastry in the jaffle maker last night - drained, tinned peaches, cardamom and a sprinkle of brown sugar. It cooked so quickly, and without having to heat the oven.

For me the egg must have a splodge of tomato sauce on the bottom slice.
As for the pies, I love the way they puff up as soon as you open the toastie maker. Even something as simple as a spoonful of jam makes a yummy quickie dessert.

i personally love thinly sliced onion, chopped tomato and cheese and ham.

Or creamed corn and cheese..

Salami, feta and olives are my favourites. My toastie maker is an old one and it doesn't cut the sandwich in half as you close it. I can get in heaps of filling. And to answer Jen's question back in the first post, no toasties are not uniquely NZ. I remember as a teenager sitting in front of the fire on a winter's night, making toasties using our long, dark red wooden handled, round headed toastie pie maker. This was in the UK, in a then small village called Stanwell, on the edge of London Airport.

Cheese & Mushroom, cheese & Baked beans, cheese & sweetcorn, I think these would be the favourites in our household.
