Making Stuffed Sandwiches with the Sandwich Maker

 Sandwich Maker... 
AKA... Old School Hot Pockets

This Little Guy will save you a Ton of money !!

  If you need a quick Snack, a great Breakfast, an easy lunch or my famous Spaghetti Sandwiches for Dinner, here is your new Best Friend.

I have had different Sandwich Makers since I was a teenager and I love them. I recently gave mine away to my brother and oh did I miss it. 

The next week, I went to a local thrift store and found a newly used one for $4, cleaned and sanitized it and I was ready to go.

This is very easy to use.
1) Spray the inside with cooking spray, I prefer Olive Oil.
2) Lay 1 piece of regular bread across 2 triangles, repeat for next set of 2 triangles. 
3) Layer:  Cheese, Toppings, and Cheese again. 
4)  Place another piece of bread on top. 
5)  Squeeze shut and cook.
