Come lunchtime when the midday stomach grumbles set in, a quick, tasty bite is just the thing to carry you into the afternoon. Jaffles provide a delicious pocket of cheesy goodness, are a great way to use up leftover breakfast and dinner provisions, and an easy way to create a hot lunch for those on the go.
Better yet, the ingredients required to make delicious jaffles are simple, kitchen staples: think creamy spreadable butter for toasting, two slices of your favourite bread, melty cheese – be it tasty slices, a grated cheese blend or a shaved parmesan, for example – and fillings of your choosing.
