Our favorite toasted / grilled sandwiches, made with our favorite homemade bread of course…
I distinctly remember when toasties (tosti if you’re Dutch, croque-monsieur for the French) came into fashion with our family. All of a sudden everybody had a ‘hot toasty iron’. Now this was something new and different to look forward to for lunch. Somehow we never got past the cheese and ham ones, except for the apple or apple sauce version,
which was our childhood sweet tooth favorite.
For some time now, I know that there’s more adventure in toasties. I love it when I bump into new toasty ideas. Like recently, out for lunch in Amsterdam, the banana, cheese and sambal mayo (chili paste) one. Sweet and hot, unconventional I grand you, but just give it a try…it’s a great way to use up your not so fresh loaf of bread!
BTW, we make toasties with all kinds of bread, pain rustique, sourdough, baguette, it all goes between the big toaster!
