Hello World!

Earlier this week, I was astonished to find out that jaffle irons apparently don't exist in the US. An Australian soldier serving with the US Marines in Iraq reportedly mystified his comrades when he cooked his sandwiches using a jaffle iron, as they had never seen one before. How do you live?

Jaffle irons are wonderful things, because they have so many uses. All you do is place two pieces of buttered bread inside the jaffle maker, and stuff them with whatever filling you desire. For instance, you can just bung last night's leftover spaghetti bolognese in between two pieces of bread, close the jaffle iron and in a few minutes you'll have a hot snack. My personal favourite is a cheese and tomato toasted sandwich with BBQ sauce. The sauce adds an extra zing to the sandwich, and it tastes great when it's been bubbling away for a while.

This web site lists their many varied ways to make all sorts of wonderful tasty treats.
