Tinned Fillings - Spaghetti

When one is asked to name ten different toastie fillings, tinned spaghetti is generally within the first five answers. Tinned spaghetti, like baked beans, comes in a number of different flavours. Other than standard tomato, the most common flavours are extra cheesy and extra tomato.

What I like most about tinned spaghetti toasties, is that they are a great excuse to let my inner child loose! Who wants to eat standard spaghetti when you can eat dinosaurs (Spag-a-saurus by SPC)! When I am not eating dinosaurs, I like to indulge in Oops Spaghetti O’s or Alphagetti by Heinz.

If you have young relations, which you look after from time to time, Heinz, also produces Dora the Explorer, Ben 10 and Wiggles Pasta shapes. Who would be the coolest uncle/aunt in the entire world if they served Dora Toasties?

If you want something other than standard flavoured spaghetti, Watties comes to the party with spaghetti with sausages and spaghetti with meatballs. You will need to cut the sausages and meatballs before putting them in your toastie maker.

Tinned Spaghetti

Makes: 2 toasties

  • ½ cup of  tinned spaghetti (any flavour or shape)
  • 4 slices of bread
  • butter (optional)

  1. Preheat the toastie maker and butter each of the four slices of bread (optional).
  2. Place one slice of bread onto the bottom grill plate. If using butter, place butter side down.
  3. Spoon ¼ cup of spaghetti onto the centre of the bread.
  4. Place the top piece of bread on top of the filling. If using butter, place butter side up.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 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.

  • Depending on the flavour, I will add some cheddar or parmesan cheese.
