Jaffles, Toastie-pies, Toasties. Whatever the label, everyone loves them and has their favourite. We asked you recently to send us your fave fillings and boy, did you! We are pretty sure the list below covers most of the basic food groups. There are toasted sandwiches for every meal of the day, sweet or savoury.
We particularly liked Diane Davidson’s Blue Ribbon Beef Sandwich:
Blend spreadable cream cheese with finely chopped parsley and a little mustard. Spread this on the bread of your choice. Season with salt and pepper. Top with thinly sliced silverside or roast beef (from the deli). Sprinkle with a layer of fresh blueberries on the meat and place the second bread slice on top. Toast in a sandwich press.
And Janine Ingham’s favourite: rocket, pear, gorgonzola, and caramelized onion.
