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.

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.
