It’s national sandwich week which of course means sharing some sandwich recipes with you! Not just a standard sandwich, however, not even just one, but three recipes! Three toasties filled with melted cheeses and flavoursome ingredients to make each one a little more special. And since they don’t contain any meat or fish, they’re all suitable for vegetarians as well. Now, one thing needs to be pointed out: if you’re looking for a very thick sort of toastie, you’d be better off pan-frying it. However, that also means that it would potentially be very messy and less practical. Making your toasties in a proper toaster means that they’re slightly easier to eat and you have less of a mess. And less of a mess means less tidying up and more time enjoying the sunshine. Convinced? Then here are the three recipes.
