My sweetheart bought a sandwich toaster a few weeks ago. I can't imagine what prompted her to do so, and as with most of those sold during the late 70s or whenever they flooded the market, it was used once and spends it's time cluttering up the kitchen. However this evening, in a moment of inspiration, I put it to good use, and was very pleased with the result. I was cooking lamb chops with sweet potato, French beans and a thick, blue cheese, mustard and onion sauce, but I made far more sauce than I needed. I pondered over making a Welsh rarebit starter, and then I remembered the sandwich maker. So ok, here's what you do if you have one. Pop 4 slices of bread in a normal toaster and cook them without cremating. Butter them whilst hot so the butter melts and soaks in. Now turn the bread over and spread it on the dry side with the cheese and onion sauce. Slice a couple of mushrooms and lay them on top of a couple of he slices and then complete the sandwich. Have the sandwich toaster ready to go and whack it in for about 5 minutes, maybe less, maybe more. I guessed, checked how it was doing and gave it a little longer. Having the butter on the outside lightly fries the toast, making up for the loss of flavour you'd get by browning the cheese. It occurs to me it would be a great way of using up leftover cauliflower cheese, if unlike me, you find you have time for breakfast.
