Using your sandwich toaster

Recipe ideas
Making toasties is easy and fun, they can be as creative or as simple as you like and make great snacks whether eaten at home or on the go.
Using basic ingredients delicious sweet or savoury meals can be made in minutes, perfect for any time of the day. Here are some classic toasted sandwich recipes that you may wish to try.

  • Tuna Melt (tuna, onion, mayonnaise and cheese)
  • Cheese and tomato
  • Cheese, beans and ham
  • Turkey, stuffing and cranberry
  • Ham, Brie, mushrooms and rocket
  • Steak and mushrooms
  • BLT (bacon, lettuce and tomato)
  • Bacon and cheese
  • Chicken, red pepper and Brie
  • Sweet chilli chicken
  • Sausage and scrambled eggs
  • Camembert and cranberry
  • Chocolate and banana
  • Banana and plum
  • Toffee and apple

For best results, use a supermarket own-label, medium, white sliced bread. For variety, why not try using wholemeal bread, Danish-style bread, seeded breads, sour dough and fruit breads.

Classic cheeses that melt easily like Cheddar, Gruyere and Emmental make excellent toasties. We’ve included some different cheeses in our recipes but why not experiment and get creative with your own favourite cheeses!

The perfect toastie
Even if you are already familiar with using a sandwich toaster, it’s worth following the guidelines below.

  1. Plug your sandwich toaster in to the mains supply socket and switch the socket on if required. The green power light will come on and your sandwich toaster will start heating up.
  2. When your sandwich toaster is fully heated the amber ready-to-cook light will come on. This light will come on and go out during cooking.
  3. Spread the OUTSIDE of the bread with butter or a spread suitable for cooking. Don’t use a low fat spread or one which has a high water content.
  4. Place the two lower slices of bread onto the bottom plate ‘buttered’ side down. Face the crusts of the bread to the left and right as shown below.
  5. Add the filling. The deeper cooking plates allow you to use more of your favourite ingredients but always allow a 2cm gap around the filling as shown below. This will allow your sandwich toaster to form a good seal and prevent the filling from leaking out.image 3
    For best results, the maximum amount of cheese, when used as a single ingredient, should not exceed 60g. If you add other ingredients, reduce the amount of cheese to compensate for them.
  6. Place the remaining bread on top with the buttered side on the outside (this will give your toastie a lovely golden colour during cooking).
  7. Close and latch the lid and allow to cook for approx. 4-5 minutes until golden and cooked. Leave the sandwich in the toaster for more or less time according to taste.
  8. Release the latch and open the lid. Watch out for escaping steam—use a tea towel or wear oven gloves. Remove the cooked sandwich with a non-metallic spatula. Don’t use a metal blade as this can damage the non-stick surface of the plates.
  9. Once cooked, take care when eating as fillings, especially fruit or tomato, can be very hot.

Important Points: 

  • Always allow a 2cm gap around the filling.
  • Never overfill your toastie.
  • Too much filling can leak out and also make the latch difficult to close.

  1. Dust your work surface with flour and roll out half of the shortcrust pastry, this should be large enough for 2 sandwich plates. Repeat again so that you have 4 squares. You can remove the top plate from your sandwich toaster and use it as a template (rather than pressing the plate onto the pastry).
  2. Place some of the steak filling in the centre of each of the pastry triangles (don’t overfill). Place the remaining pastry triangles over the pastie and seal all the edges.
  3. If removed, refit the sandwich plate and switch on, allow the machine to heat. Brush the plates sparingly with some vegetable oil or butter if you prefer.

  5. Cook for approx. 6-7 minutes until golden brown and piping hot.

1 tbsp chopped toasted hazelnuts Honey (optional) 60g brie, sliced

Brioche (although smaller than supermarket bread) will seal and toast beautifully.
