The Humble Jaffle, a toasty with edges pinched to keep in the goodness. It is known by many names but is beloved across the globe. Us Kiwis call it an old-school toasty but it's known as the jaffle in Australia, in the UK a pie iron or pudgy pie iron and in South Africa a ‘snackwich’. A great option for many styles of business and service as it does not take up much space to produce an awesome end product. Make it as simple or decadent as you like. Good honest food with endless flavour possibilities... creating pockets of deliciousness.
Pulled pork, tasty cheese & jalapeños sandwiched into buttered bread and toasted in a shaped press, pinching the corners to create a pocket.
