If you like a ploughman's lunch, you might like these. Russ made them for our lunch today and I want to make them again! My Jaffle maker is electric and toasts two sandwiches at once. In Aus, we can also get long handled jaffle makers use over a camp fire. You could also make this in a panini press. ..
- 4 slices bread (we used multi grain)
- 4 teaspoons butter
- chutney, your chocie of flavour (we used an apricot one)
- 60 g leg ham, shaved thinly
- 80 g cheddar cheese
- 1 pickled onion, thinly sliced (we used chilli one)
- Heat jaffle maker.
- Butter outside of bread slices with one teaspoon butter each.
- Place bottom slices in jaffle maker.
- Divide and lay ham, cheese, pickled onion on top, Spread chutney on underside of remaining two slices of bread, lay on top of fillings butter side out.
- Cook until golden brown and cheese melted.
We really loved this, Dave wants another one but I've run out of ham. I used Chilli Chutney which I made a few weeks back and the sweetness of the sultanas was really nice. Will be making these again.
I can't really post accurate stars because I didn't stick to the recipe. I had no chutney so I used raspberry jam. We don't have pickled onions (at least, generally at the market) around here so I used the onions fished out of the bread-n-butter pickles. And finally, our ham was not shaved thinly. However, after saying all that, these came out pretty darn good tasting and I will continue to experiment. Also, thanks for giving this American a name for stuff that comes out of the sandwich maker - it isn't quite grilled, or toasted, or panini-ed - what the heck could I call it that sounded interesting but not made up? No I will tell the kids "Your jaffles are ready!" and see what they say.
