We’ve had this funny little sandwich maker for years. Paul received it as a housewarming gift when he bought he first house, over 10 years ago. I thought about giving it away to charity several times – it is one of those odd gadget machines that only has one purpose. Kind of like the “quesadilla maker” that was on TV a few years ago. But I reasoned that when we had kids it might be fun for them.
The kids are finally at the age where they will eat sandwiches. Sometimes. Sean likes PB&J and nothing else. Audrey will not eat peanut butter, but likes ham and cheese. In any event, it’s still fun for Paul and me. I decided to break out the old sandwich maker today for lunch.
Audrey ate hers. Sean picked his apart to get the ham out. Oh well, maybe in a few years! It’s certainly a lot better than Hot Pockets from the freezer.
I did a little searching and found that Magic Chef doesn’t make this appliance anymore, but you can get practically the same thing from Procotor Silex on Amazon.com for $19.00 or for $9.00 used on eBay. I even found a site with a list of sandwich toaster recipes beyond the basic deli meat and cheese. Someone suggested making turnovers with pie filling. Yum! I may have to try that one.
