    FloridaNative's Note:

    Toast Hawaii is to Germans as Grilled Cheese is to Americans. Universally understood, you could order this little snack in any restaurant, even if not on the menu. The version of Toast Hawaii shown here can be dressed up if you wish, but it is tasty plain, too. Serves as many as you want. Count on one or two sandwiches per person. From about.com and posted for ZWT6.

      Toast Hawaii or Hawaii toast as we say in Germany, really is a universal staple. At my favorite restaurant in Germany they used a bit of yellow mustard to give it a bit of a zing. It's great either way.

      I am German and grew up on this , I just wanted to add that you can please the person who does not like cheese and pineapple...like my Italian husband ,making Toast Hawaii by switching out the pineapple with fresh slices of tomato .You could even switch out the ham with pepperoni or salami, I prefer salami, we used to make this in Germany and called it Pizzabrot.

      I split 2 wholemeal/wholegrain rolls and the DM and I thoroughly enjoyed this for lunch today. Loved biting through the sharp cheddar cheese I used with the sweetness from the pineapple and that slight smoky salty taste of the ham with the soft warmth of the bread roll and that little punch from the herbs - delicious. Thank you FloridaNative for a great lunch and Alligirl for the recommomendation - made for I Recommend.
