5 mins to prep

10 mins to cook

  1. Step 1

    Spread margarine over both sides of the white bread and place the ragu in the centre. Fill it so a little spills out the side when you press it down. Thinly slice the onion and layer on top. Place the other slice of bread on top and pop it in the jaffle machine! Press the jaffle machine together and cook until it’s all crisp.

  2. Step 2

    In the meantime chop up the red pepper and thinly slice the pear; mix it together with the rocket in a bowl. Combine the oil and vinegar, pour over the salad and toss to combine.

  3. Step 3

    Cut the jaffle into the classic triangle and pop it on a plate. Surround it with the salad and finally add a pickle. Enjoy!


No jaffle machine or panini press? You can easily do this in a pan on medium-low heat, lightly oiled to get it nice and crisp — just move it around consistently so it doesn’t burn!
