Melbourne winters usually call for soups and hot chocolates, but if you want something warm in your tummy quickly, nothing beats a simple toasted sandwich aka jaffle.

Due to the popularity of the humble jaffle, most Melbourne households own a toastie maker / jaffle iron. If you don't, toasted sandwich makers are pretty reasonable, starting from as little as $20 in high street stores.

You can't go past a simple tomato or ham and cheese toastie on your plate, but if you fancy experimenting with your toasted sandwiches, how about you try one of the following 7 winning jaffle combos for Melbourne winters:
