Whether it’s the simplicity of two slices of bread, butter and a filling, the fact you can have them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (and even dessert), or that the thought of ooey-gooey melted cheese can make anyone salivate… but, no matter what the secret ingredient is, toasted sandwiches rock!
They are a quintessential camping staple, the ideal morning grab and run eat-in-the-car snack, pack and toast at work lunch, and even a gourmet stylish Sunday night meal matched with the perfect wine.
Some call them Toasties, but they are also fondly known as a Jaffle, Croque Monsieur, Grilled Cheese or simply a Melt. Whatever you call them, at Beerenberg we make dozens upon dozens of chutneys, relishes, sauces, jams and condiments that go 100% amazingly with the toasted sandwich.
