Bite the ends of a Tim Tam choc biscuit and suck a cup of tea through it.....

Trick is to catch the Tim Tam before it dissolves completely, and slurp it down.

Tim Tams are more-ish on their own...

Nah, with whisky; mind you I won't use a single malt.

It may be a good way of using up the deteriorated dregs in all those near empty bottles .

Re: My favourite 'toastie' is......

Green chili and cheddar cheese can be eaten all day.

Maybe not at true toast, but unbelievable great

Wheat tortilla folded and heated on a pan.

Inside:

thin roast beef slices, cheddar cheese, jalapeño peppers - heat until the cheese melts but keep the tortilla soft.

Serve with a pickle and potato chips and COLD beer

Make two - one is not enough

Re: My favourite 'toastie' is......

Well, if we're going to accept "one-sided" toasties, aka as 'melts, then my fave is wholemeal grainy bread, toasted, thinly spread with Sacla Basil/Pine nut Pesto, then layered with Hungarian or Italian salami, and any combination of sun-dried tomatoes, preserved marinated artichokes, anchovies and black olives, covered with thin slices of a good cheddar and topped with a thick sprinkle of grated parmesan, ground black pepper and rock salt.

Placed under the grill to melt and lightly brown the cheese.

Heaven on a plate.

Haven't tried it, but should work equally well as a Breville.

That and Carsten's roast beef and melted cheese suggestion are making my mouth water .

I am becoming more and more convinced that just about anything with melted cheese is a winner .

I dunno... I reckon there's an efficiency gain with the square one that can't be ignored.

Efficiency is not the driving force for connoisseurs. Cutting off the eight pointy bits of crust is a 'make it or break it' step resulting in the difference between a two and three star result .

Re: My favourite 'toastie' is......

I cut the crusts off completely after they are finished. Pleb, I can hear you all scream. My toastie, my pleasure, my method.

Wait a minute... I smell a rat. All this purist cruisers talk of living off the sea, eating only what you can carry for six months away from land in a boat 18 feet long with no fridge and a kero lamp for cooking... and you are CUTTING OFF THE CRUSTS! What kind of decadent land lubber are you!? Someone call the mods! An imposter in our midst.
