Do You Remember--Snackster?

With the big craze of cooking everything in a waffle iron, the snackster comes to mind. I still have mine. It is a small electric appliance, with shallow wells inside. The lid is domed to match the wells. They are designed to cook a sandwich and cut it diagonally but you can cook so much more in it. Last night I made whole grain pancake batter and put two "Little Smokies" sausages in each corner well. I poured batter over them and cooked until done. We ate these with applesauce. It is a good way to cook up other batters as well. One advantage is that you do not heat up the house with a large appliance, and it also saves on utilities. This morning I put veggies in the well and poured scrambled eggs over them to cook. Yummy.

It is great to be able to do stuff differently for two.

@GardenGerty It is hard to cook for two when you are used to cooking for 4, I still have a hard time with that.

Yeah, it was time to do something different for a meal. It was good. You can eat something like that with syrup or applesauce or mustard and it will all be good.

@bunnybon7 That would be good, you could have things on your own schedule.

These are good ideas. I have a sandwich maker which toasts sandwiches. Perhaps I could do something similar with it.

Perhaps you could. I have also made veggie fritters in them, mixing some egg and self rising flour with shredded zucchini and carrots.

I have mixed up shredded veggies with egg and self rising flour and made kind of fritters. Zucchini and carrot I believe.

@GardenGerty I had to smile. It looks like when you came back your first comment had disappeared. Now there are two. This happened to me yesterday too. I was quite sure I'd replied to someone (and she remembered it too) but then it disappeared. I don't know if it reappeared later or not.

Oh, I could fill up my cupboards easily with gadgets. If I use them, then it is a good thing.

It sounds vaguely familiar. But I'd have to see a picture to be sure.

They are always coming out with new gadgets to get our money.

What I am picturing is the thing that you could put a slice of bread on each side and put filling in and it came out round when cooked.

I think that is the newer version, these were from the early 80's.

I think I have two waffle irons, no panini maker, but I could do the same on a George Forman Grill, I imagine.

I never had one, thought they looked not too useful, but I had no idea you could do all that in them

I think I saw something on television that showed me how to do this.

I used to have one of those. My favorite things to make were omelets and pancakes.

Sounds like a handy appliance, but we do not have one here.

I am hoping when the weather gets really hot to stick to mostly small appliances.
