Lunch times mean different things to me depending on the day of the week. If I’m at work then I know I have to be prepared and think of lunch times in the morning or the night before. The days that I am at home, I am a little more relaxed on what I make for lunch, but these are the days that I can lack the inspiration needed to provide me with a filling lunch.
When our sandwich toastersandwich toaster stopped working, we never replaced it for some reason, but just lately I have found myself making toasted sandwiches via different means in the kitchen because I am lacking my sandwich toaster.
There are a few different ways of making a toasted sandwich. You could use toasted sandwich bags or even a health grill to give you the same toasted sandwich finish. I have been making mine on my health grill which is proving an easy option at the moment. To make a toasted sandwich in your health grill, take your bread and toast one side of it on the grill before adding your filling to the toasted side. Make into a sandwich and place back in the grill to seal together. If you angle the bread you will get nice diagonal lines onto the sandwich when it is cooked.
But what to put in your toasted sandwich? It can be easy to be stuck in the routine of making a toasted cheese sandwich, which is one of my favourites, but it can get boring after a while, so I have been scouting around for some easy toasted sandwich ideas.
To make my cheese toast more interesting, I have been adding red onion or spring onion. Eating it tastes like eating a pizza, which for me is heaven in my mouth.
Other ideas for your toasted sandwich could include
- Bacon and egg (cook the egg first)
- cheese and tomato
- ham and cheese
- bacon and brie
- chicken and pesto
- tuna and cheese
- roasted vegetables with chicken
- tomato and mozzarella
- cheese and Marmite
- sausages and barbecue sauce
- cheese and chutney
Something sweet perhaps?
- chocolate spread
- banana and chocolate spread
- banana and honey
I am more of a savoury person rather than sweet but I have plenty of ideas to keep me going when I really crave the comfort food that is a toasted sandwich.
What would you fill your toasted sandwich with?
