My all time favourite would have to be a fried egg -rather you put a raw egg, add some salt, and this makes a lovely jaffle -especially as I adore eggs and could eat them all day long!
Also like cheese.
Yes, jaffles, yum! And the fillings, where do I start. When we were kids Mum always did them with chedder cheese, these days I prefer mozarella and if I had to choose this would be my favourite. But I also often to crack an egg into them, it soaks through the bread and I love the flavour. Baked beans are good too, or tuna, or ham. Goodness, it's nearly lunc time and this is making my mouth water.
Hi Jonaj, is that not just an electric sandwich toaster? It's NOT a Jaffle iron!
But I know what you mean by cleaning it; right PIA! I just get all the 'spills' etc off it whilst it warm, with paper towel. Then once it's cooled, use a sponge with w/u liquid on it to remove grease. Wipe with wet paper towel, then dry with cloth. Ready for next usage!
Jaffles? Not heard that term before! Judging by the photo, I guess it's what I would call a toastie or toasted sandwich.....
We used to make them a lot but I'm not supposed to have bread or dairy any more so haven't had a toastie in a long time! My favourite filling was tuna, diced tomato and grated sheep cheese, with some mustard. Yummy!
Jaffles are made with a 'Jaffle iron'. You can still buy them, I think, at camping shops. They've a long handle, two iron 'rounds' at the end in which you'd put whatever 'filling' you wanted & hold them over or in a fire! This filling would be totally 'inside' the closed 'irons'.
A modern day sandwich toaster machine is very different!
Nope, not here in Britain at least. You can get sandwich toasters that produce completely sealed toasted sandwiches, exactly like the one in main photo here. So you might have a different name for it but it's still the same thing.
Aaah, no, it's not the same thing! As explained above, I'll add that a 'Jaffle' iron is NOT electric! It goes over a fire! Or if completely iron, including handles, can go in an oven, as I had as a child. Some handles are wooden, so cannot go into an oven, but perfect for over campfire!
An electric toaster, is only, & just that, an electric toaster.
Have you not seen a proper 'Jaffle' iron, VerrityG?
I love a good jaffle! I really enjoy Chicken,cheese and tomato with cracked black pepper.Mmmm !!! I also like all sorts of pizza type fillings. I have enjoyed wonderful Sweet fillings as well,such as apple,sultanas and cinnamon!!
I used to make jaffles, many years ago. Now my husband just likes his bread toasted in the toaster, with a cheese & tomato filling, & I mostly do mine in a pan on the stove, same filling, but also with chutney or pickles.
