The Jabberwocky's Best Toastie RecipesCheese is important
As we have so many toasties in our arsenal these days, it seems only right that the best toastie recipes should be shared with the world, so that we can all get together in cheese harmony and make the world a better place. Or just have a tasty snack.
Either way. For those of you who have lived in a well on the moon, a toastie is a sandwich that has been toasted. If you are a resident of the United States, you may call it a grilled cheese or, depending on your area, a panini or melt. While none of these are inaccurate, a toastie is generally squashed around the edges, to reduce ingredient leakage. The specific ingredients vary wildly, but it all starts with good bread, decent cheese and what ever else you can find.
See that search bar over on the left? Put an ingredient in there, chances are we have toasted with it at some stage.
If you do find that one of these recipes tickles your fancy, please show your appreciation by hitting a social media button. It’s just the nicest way to use the internet. If you cannot find anything that speaks to you it’s possible you’re a vegan. Sorry about that.
Got an ingredient you want to toast? Challenge us! We have around 70 different combos, and are always looking for new ideas. Throw you idea on Facebook, we will get back to you as soon as possible.
We haven't had a toastie experiment since January. I'm not even sure how that happened, but a fresh toastie is long overdue. As it happens, part of the fallout from the Mock Turtle was that Barny came up with a recipe for BBQ sauce. This was originally to go with the...read more
There had to be a new, filthy triple-decker at some point this month, and while the Full Monty is magnificent in it's breakfastness, it is not an all day toastie. It follows then that we save the most obscene for last. If you can make a surf and turf toastie work, I...read more
We have only tried one sweet toastie so far this month, and due to a fortunate series of events we had some desserts going spare, and decided to try the creme brulee (technically crème brûlée) toastie. In the wild this should be a set custard with a caramelised sugar...read more
Yesterday we received more ingredients for the Sandwich Awards. Time to enter is running a little thin, so we thought it best to crack on with an ingredient that just keeps crossing out path. Mexicana cheese has been haunting us for a while, so we decided to give it a...read more
Once upon a time, way back in the time before toasties, we used to sell a scallop gratin. It was only one for one event, and was surprisingly popular. We then discovered toasties, and the scallop dish faded into the past. Now, having realised that that lovely dish was...read more
Lobster toasties, because you only live once. The extortionate price of these crustaceans means it is unlikely these will ever be regular menu features no matter how good they are. Let's just enjoy it while it lasts. With the gratuitous assistance of the Monty Python...read more
I can't remember who first suggested a cheesecake toastie, but it was one of those great, illuminating moments when you hear a word properly for the first time. CHEESE cake. Of course. How could we have missed this for so long? So Barny made a batch of veg soup to at...read more
Seafood. I guess as today is prawn toastie day we can call it a nautical theme somehow, parcelled up with yesterday's Anchovy offering. Still, prawns are tasty and delicious, while in my unbiased opinion anchovies are salty little blights on an otherwise perfectly...read more
It is now officially December, which means that after almost a month of covert Christmas toastie making, we can now deck the halls and get our festive on. This year is our third Advent on toasties, and our third one with the mince pie toastie specifically. It has...read more
This is a toastie with history. It has existed for almost as long as its namesake, the Manwich, but not in any tangible form. The name Candy Manwich was suggested by the Rolles Royce Regulars, who have been road-testing toasties in the wild for years now. Their...read more
There are times when you have to try something out just to make sure you're not missing out. The nature of our street food calling does mean that we spend a lot of time receiving suggestions for toasties that will make us our millions, but the reality is that everyone...read more
Selling out might be a right pain for the consumer, but for us it is a triumph. Especially when the toastie that sells out is the most expensive one on the board, and especially when people see it, stare at it, and then come tell you they simply couldn't resist it....read more
We have spent the last two weeks testing Christmas toasties, attaching clips to the van and buying rope lights. When Christmas comes we intend to be ready for it. If there is any funny business I'll be making a playlist as well, and it will have the Pogues. It won't...read more
For the foreseeable future I think we need to accept that toasties will be a better option that street food. It's faster to prepare, easier to serve, has a wider appeal and can be explained in less than a tweet. It's not, although this is a personal choice, cheaper....read more
The Manwich has deserved its own post for a long time now, as we are indebted to it for our survival as well as for being the greatest use of steak known to humankind. It's caused happiness, cheese comas and a bit of controversy, and besides the ham and cheese is the...
Yesterday we had a bit of a revelation on the filthy snack food front. What should have been an inappropriate mess of scotch egg toastie turned out to be really quite interesting. Sufficiently interesting that we decided to have another go at it today, rather than...
The Cuban toastie is one of these classic American sandwiches that everyone should have tried once. As we're now almost half way through Toastuary and things have been a little heavy on the seafood it's probably about time we serenaded you with a little bit of good...
Fun Fact: The toasted sandwich burger actually exists in the US, although it is not traditionally this big. It's known as a "Patty Melt". While happily adequate for the normal appetite, it doesn't really address the fact that a burger is filled with delicious foods...
Truly, all things have a master. In the Halls and Shrines of the Great British Toastie, that master is surely the Banoffee Toastie. I shall introduce you, and then we shall talk some more. For the Banoffee Toastie you will need: 2 slices of fresh bread per person some...
