    What with the current working from home, and the encoldening of the days, the old toastie maker is seeing some action.

    Currently enjoying cheddar with chilli, and a smear of mango chutney. Gis ya recipes.

    Cheese, tomato and red onion slices. Lots of butter on both sides of the bread of course.

    Toasted sandwiches are great!

    The faff of cleaning the sandwich maker after outweighs the greatness though! 🙂

    Could I introduce you to our latest culinary discovery….

    One of those things that you laugh mockingly at and snort with derision at what a ridiculous idea it is….

    Right up until the point when you try them. They toast the bread and sort of half-melt the cheese so it doesn’t reach the molten lava stage of the heating process. And none of the mess. You just run them under the tap afterwards

    They’re ace. Seriously.. they’re literally a couple of quid. Give them a go

    Love a toastabag. Pain in the arse to clean if you overcook it though.

    Turning them inside out without tearing them is an art form.

    Marmite and mature cheddar.
    It’s the bomb 👌

    I’m not getting the mess thing TBH, half the time the (non-stick) plates in our toastie maker barely need a wipe, never mind a wash.

    Don’t forget to butter the outside, keeps it nice and crispy and golden brown. Makes even more of a mess though!!

    And I’m not a fan of buttering the outside, cos then you’ve essentially got a fried bread sandwich, not a toasted sandwich.

    Different strokes for different folks though.

    No, I’m a convert to buttering.

    And in perfect timing:

    Simple cheese, tomato and ham for me. The tomato is always hotter than the surface of the sun, though!

    Cheese and samosa is very nice.

    Cold leftover burger cut in half horizontally, with cheese and tomato sauce was alright.

    Cheese, srichacha and peanut butter is nice too.

    I’m strongly in favour of all those individual constituent parts, but sceptical if they’ll work alongside one another. It’s lunchtime now so I’m going to go and try it in the name of research.

    Lived off them since working from home started, red onion relish, flavoured chicken and cheese. Every single day, the George is getting more use than ever before. Never thought I’d miss the work canteen so much. Agreed that it only needs a quick wipe, very little fuss.

    Had posh brie with ham, black pepper and sun dried toms yesterday, dipped in a bowl of tomato and basil soup.

    My kind of soup and a sandwich.

    We have a Breville one bought as a wedding present in 1990 and its been used weekly since. It takes up to 8 slices of bread and seals the edges to the toasties.
    Bread is always buttered on the outside and my best filling has to be red Leicester cheese, chunks of corned beef and Branston pickle.
    Still the go to snack after a wet, cold, windy day out in the hills

    Cast iron grill pan for toasties. Everything tastes better with lines burnt into it, and it’s compatible with your oddly-shaped hipster bread.

    Eh? Only if you use a ridiculous amount of butter, otherwise it just helps crisp the outside a bit more.

    Current favourite is the cheese (mature cheddar), baked bean (just a few, don’t overload it) and tobasco.

    Pressure’s on, but try the cheese, srichacha and peanut butter combo and thank me later

    I’ve discovered that mayo works really well on the outside. Easier to spread than butter and adds a bit of a tang. On the inside, pulled pork and BBQ sauce with a bit of cheese for me today.

    Harissa

    German Sausage

    Brie and chorizo chunks (we use a George Foreman grill – just wipe off if there is any seepage)

    heat toastie machine first and a small bit of butter spread onto the cooking plates in the machine works well.

    toastie machine good for cooking home made waffles as well, buttering the machine as above first

    sliced mars bar goes well as a sweet option

    vial stuff

    That the Big Pharma version?
