You will need:

  • 200g leftover ragu
  • 4 pickled onions
  • 2 big pickles
  • 4 white bread slices
  • 20g margarine, room temperature
For the salad
  • 2 handfuls of rocket
  • 1 roasted red pepper skin removed, sliced
  • 1 pear, sliced
  • 10ml red wine vinegar
  • 30ml extra virgin olive oil
Recipe: Simon Toohey


  • 1Spread 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.
  • 2In 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.
  • 3Cut the jaffle into the classic triangle and pop it on a plate. Surround it with the salad and finally add a pickle. Enjoy!

*Variation: *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!
