I'm a bit of a toastie muncher. The first one is my version of good old cheese & ham.
Mature Cheese & Crispy Dry Cured Smokey Bacon with Chopped Black Olives, and or fried mushrooms (always cook & dry the mushrooms before putting in the toastie, or the tasty lil buggers will make your toasty soggy.
Chicken or Minced Beef Curry, left over spag bol sauce or chilli are also nice toastie fillers.
Oh i'm into em alright, i've made a canny few toasties in my time
With semi-solid fillings like spag bol sauce, i reheat the filling in a pan first cos it thins down a bit when it heats up - I then dredge the thick sludge from the bottom of the pan, filling only to the middle area of the toastie, if you venture too far to the outside, it will leak indeedy!
I have to add that a cheese and onion toasty is just awesome with a good, strong white cheese and red onion
Yup leave the nearly raw, slimy mozzies to the Calzone pizzas you get from dodgy high street takeaways! Eeeok!
Mmmm I got the toastie bug earlier - I made a cheese, tomato and basil one before i went out to an appointment. Soooo mmmm! lol
If i wrote a tutorial i'd have to spend time on the computer, which for me is a bit like a busmans holiday.
Have you made any sweet toasties yet? Another marvelous toastie realm to explore: Last time i experimented with em, i used Strawberries (sweetened with icing sugar) for one. Apple (sweetened with granulated sugar) & cinnamon for the other - I cooked em in a pan (constantly stirring) Filled toasties with the thick stuff (a bit like pie filling) and saved the juice. When the strawberry toasties were done i dusted them with icing sugar, and served with a good quality dairy ice cream and finally poured the juice (which i'd thickened slightly) over the icecream. For the apple i sweetened the filling with granulated sugar, added cinnamon, and when cooked and hot i sprinkled them with brown sugar. Had them with ice cream too
