Why has nobody ever told me about this!!
Best. Thing. Ever.

If you have a sandwich maker what do you do in it that isnt sandwiches or eggs?

Im wondering about cake grin

Just a normal toasted sandwich maker? Like a breville?
Just put normal pancake mix in?
What does it come out like?
Ahhhh, is it like waffles????

Chasingsquirrels Sat 05-Mar-16 09:55:28

And sorry, eggs??

PirateJones Sat 05-Mar-16 09:56:16

also Eggs?

Ginmakesitallok Sat 05-Mar-16 09:57:20

Mind blown. Eggs? Pancakes?

Arfarfanarf Sat 05-Mar-16 09:57:31

Yes. Normal sandwich maker. Normal pancake batter and it comes out beautifully. Like pancakes but tastier.
And i do eggs in it. Just crack them in. They are delicious.
I also do mini omelettes and they are fab too.

Gorgeous!

Aren't they just called waffles?

I never got the point of a separate waffle maker. Just put American pancake mix in a sandwich toaster, and voila, waffles.

DottyBee Sat 05-Mar-16 10:01:45

Oooh. I love pancakes.
Is it a deep sandwich maker or a regular one?

LastOneDancing Sat 05-Mar-16 10:02:36

Mind. Blown.

My teenagers do entire meals in the sandwich maker - chicken breasts, veg, fishfingers, wedges (anything from the freezer really).

They aren't great at cleaning it which makes from some rather odd flavours though - toasted sweet chilli and garlic flavoured peanut butter sandwiches anyone?

[bleurgh]

Arfarfanarf Sat 05-Mar-16 10:04:53

I dont know. Ive never made waffles.Is it the same recipe as pancakes?
It's a deep one.
They are gorgeous.
Nobody has told me yet if theyve ever tried to make cake. Im going to have to try it out arent i?

This thread is a revelation. We had a sandwich maker as a wedding present. I don't think we ever used it until last October when DS2 had one (married in 1998, since divorced). It hasn't been used since.

On holiday last week I had waffles made at the egg station, totally yummy. I now what breakfast tomorrow is now!

You can make puff pastry triangles too. Squares of bought puff pastry, filled with all sorts of sweet or savoury stuff - DH thinks it is magic smile

GreyAndGoldInTheMeadow Sat 05-Mar-16 10:25:36

Oh I thew mine out sad it did have cheese melted into all its orifices though.

Thelwell Sat 05-Mar-16 10:26:27

OMG.

op-don't mean to be pushy but can you go do the cake test now and report back (am low-carbing else would do it myself). thanks.

DoreenLethal Sat 05-Mar-16 10:29:01

So you could grate cheese into the pancake batter and have cheesy pancakes? Whoa!!!

Bulletpr00f Sat 05-Mar-16 10:32:24

Try the cake now. We need to know.

Arfarfanarf Sat 05-Mar-16 10:33:35

I am going to do that right now.

DoreenLethal Sat 05-Mar-16 10:36:17

Mine are in as we speak...

ChasingPavements Sat 05-Mar-16 10:36:30

<sobs>

I think that I have the wrong sort of sandwich maker - the flat one. Am loving these ideas sad

MummySparkle Sat 05-Mar-16 10:38:13

Oh sad

We have a flat plate toastie maker, great for sandwiches, but the mixture would just run out
