I just bought a sandwich maker on Sundy. So far all we have done is PB&J (which as really yummy hot) and Cheese and Bean.

I also created a really yummy dessert for the boys by putting fresh blueberries between two pieces of whole wheat bread. The kids loved it. It was like a turnover - minus all the sugar.

So - does anyone have any good ideas for healthy snacks or meals you can make with a sandwich maker?

Nothing that is really healthy LOL. But, I like your ideas. I've never thought of doing pb&j.

You might not be keen on this, but we use rolled puff sheets of pastry, and stick assorted fruits in them:

- banana slices
- peach slices

etc. You can throw in some cinnamon aswell.

Our favorite is pizza. Just put sauce and cheese (we use vegan cheese) between some bread and close it up. We add toppings when we feel like it. Emily likes it because she can hold the pocket easily in her hands and doesn't need a fork to eat "pizza"

Hi. I mainly use mine to make 'pancake puffs' - my ds loves those, and also eggs to make a sandwhich with (but I don't put the bread in there for the egg sandwhich). I've also done the pg&j and grilled cheese sandwhiches in there too. I'd love to get some new ideas for it too since I got mine as a gift not that long ago and its fun to use.

How do you make pancake puffs? Do you just poor the batter in the sandwich maker?

Oh and same with the egg - do you just crack an egg into it? How long to cook?

Hi. Yup, you just pour the batter in there or crack the egg in there and let it cook. You do have to pierce the yolk of the egg though, and also don't latch it - just close it, for both.

I'm not exactly sure how long to cook... I just peek every couple of min. to see if they're done or not, and use a plastic spatula to check the bottoms. hth.

dotcommama,

how do you make those been and cheese sandwiches?

fil gave me one of those makers a few years ago and I have only used it once, so I love the fact you started this thread.

Very Easy -

You can use either bread or tortillas - either will work in the sandwich maker - put one tortilla down then put about a tablespoon of refried beans and as much cheese as you like and then put the other tortilla on top. Takes about 3-4 minutes to warm through.
