Potato sandwiches through the ages
- Sandwich maker: I have a Cuisinart sandwich maker. This one to be precise.
- If you don’t own a sandwich maker, you can use a frying pan, instead.
- Add butter to the bread slices and sandwich the potato mixture in between.
- Use a flat spatula or a heavy heat proof object to flatten the sandwich.
- Flip the sandwich when the bottom turns golden brown.
