Recipe Tips

  • There are hundreds of different fillings you can have in a toasted sandwich, mix it up, and try something new.
  • You can toast the sandwich without butter if you want to be slightly healthier.
  • For a super simple toasted cheese sandwich, just use a nice cheddar, butter, and bread. This combination will give you a lovely toasted, gooey cheese sandwich.
