Tinned Fillings - Canned Microwave Meals

The final toastie filling for this month is canned microwave meals. I have never been a fan of canned microwave meals. To me, they are like aeroplane food, they look ok, smell ok, but there is something about them that is not quite right.

There are fast and easy meals and when served with a few pieces of buttered bread or toast make a good fall back when you are sick, injured or just cannot be bothered.

The flavours on offer from Campbell’s and Heinz are quite appealing. Every so often, I find myself tempted. A quick walk down the appropriate supermarket isle will reveal a long list of potential toastie filling candidates including beef stroganoff, lamb hot pot, peppered steak and gravy, chilli con cane, butter chicken curry, and lamb rogan josh.

Canned Microwave Meals

Makes: 2 toasties

  • ½ cup of microwave stew/casserole/etc.
  • 4 slices of white bread
  • butter (optional)

  1. Preheat the toastie maker and butter each of the four slices of bread (optional).
  2. Place one slice of bread, butter side down, onto the bottom grill plate.
  3. Spoon ¼ cup of the stew/casserole onto the centre of the bread.
  4. Place the top piece of bread on top of the mixture, butter side up.
  5. Repeat steps 2 to 4 for the other grill plate.
  6. Gently close the lid and allow to toast for approximately 3 minutes, or until the bread has browned sufficiently.
