Toasted Sandwich Bag

Oct 7, 2021

The best lunch hack!

A week of lunch and snacks ready and prepped in the freezer. All you have to do is take one out and place in a sandwich press or in a fry pan.

I always have a bag of these prepped in the smoko room for staff who may come in late for smoko or are working on their own. They simply take out a sandwich and place it in the sandwich press.

These would also be great for hungry teenagers, or even for a midnight snack for a mamma up late with small children.

You can make several bags of these at one time.

  • 1 loaf sandwich bread
  • spreadable butter
  • squares of baking paper (the same size as a piece of bread)
  • 200 grams grated cheese
  • 2 tbsp tomato relish (generous sizes)
  • 1 chopped spring onion
  • 1 packet onion soup
  • 1 egg


  • Combine the filling ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
  • Place a square of baking paper (just a bit bigger than a piece of bread) on thebench.
  • Butter a slice of bread and place it butter side down on the baking paper.
  • Spread the filling right to the edges and top the sandwich with another slice of buttered bread, butter side up.
  • Repeat with the rest of the loaf.
  • Stack the sandwiches, ensuring there is a piece of baking paper between each one and put the stack of sandwiches back into the bread bag and into the freezer.
  • Pull out one sandwich at a time when ready to cook and either cook in the toasted sandwich maker or in a frying pan over a medium heat.
