Every time I type the word Jaffle, it autocorrects to waffle. Well I suppose it’s not an American word. It’s more commonly used in Australia and South Africa. So what is a jaffle? Its a toastie, or a snackwich, or a toasted sandwich and also known as a breville.
When I’m out doing street food, I use a jaffle iron to make these delicious sandwiches, held over a flame until toasted.
The most popular jaffle seems to be my mince (ground beef) jaffle. I use garlic butter on the outside of the sandwich (can never go wrong with garlic), which makes it brown nicely and makes it taste amazing. I tend to cook creatively, which makes it hard to nail down a recipe, however I will try – I do suggest you adjust to taste…recipe below.
I will say one thing about cooking – it is so important to enjoy it and cook with love. I ran an experiment once with some staff. I gave them a recipe to follow. The lady who loved her job and loved cooking made a really tasty dish, but the lady who was miserable – following the same recipe, made a mediocre dish. I don’t know what it is, but it definitely makes a difference to taste.
