Living Below the Line: Fruit Jaffles

On the principle that you may want to know what breakfast looks like this week, I present: the two ingredient breakfast!

Your Shopping List

4 slices of bread
1/2 cup tinned peaches, or 1 apple, sliced and cooked until soft

Now what will you do with it?

Switch on the jaffle iron (you will need the old-fashioned kind that actually seals the sandwiches, not the fancy sandwich press variety).

Put a slice of bread on the lower half of the jaffle iron.  Spread 1/4 cup of tinned peaches over it, and cover with a second slice of bread.

Repeat with the rest of the bread and fruit.

Close the jaffle iron and cook until done.  Serves 2.



Do you know what would make these jaffles awesome? Butter (or margarine).  And sugar.  And cinnamon.  And maybe even some sultanas, and some yoghurt to go with them.

May I have these things?  No, I may not.

But you (hopefully) can.  You would, in this instance, butter the outside of the bread, and add sugar, cinnamon and sultanas to the fruit.  You don’t need very much, but it would make an amazing difference.

Also, tinned apricots would be much better than tinned peaches, but they are always more expensive.

And better quality bread wouldn’t hurt, though white sliced bread is actually pretty much what you want for jaffles.
