What is a Diablo

A Diablo is a deep, disc-shaped, cooked snack usually made with bread – it’s definitely not your average square meal. There is no limit to the variety of meals and snacks that can be made with the maker.

For the basic instructions, we’ll start with:

Old Nick’s Normal

• 1 slice of ham

• 2 tablespoons of grated cheese. Different cheeses melt at different rates and have very different tastes.
For a mild, really melted cheese, try Gruyere.

• A little pepper and relish to taste.

• 2 slices of bread of choice

For best results, always use a pre-heated maker.
It is not necessary to butter or oil the bread and is ideal for that small snack when you don't really want a full supper.

This is probably the most basic you can make in the maker. Delicious – yes. But you can do so much better than that!

There really is a huge variety of different snacks that can be made. Try tuna, cheesetomato and mayonnaise. Or bacon, lettuce and tomato.

We’re always interested to hear of novel recipes used in the Diablo.

Close the Diablo maker, pushing the bread through the gap between the hinges. Press hard so that the Diablo maker cuts the excess bread from around the sandwich. Trim any excess bread around the outside edge of the Diablo maker using the blunt edge of a knife. Clip the handles together.
