Snackmaster Monday

Today at Virtucon in honor of Cupid is Stupid day, a bunch of people are bringing in food. Now I don't know what goes on at a normal office. Perhaps a lame potluck where people bring dishes that always feature either a can of Cream of Chicken or Cream of Mushroom soup? Our office rocks though.

If you don't know what a Snackmaster is, it's like a waffle machine, but it's used to make grilled/sealed sandwiches. You put bread in both sides and then it seals them into perfect halves kind of like a home made Hot Pocket. Typically you'll also jam in some cheese. While I don't understand why people need a separate machine to make what is essentially a grilled cheese sandwich, a bunch of people in our team have one. How we discovered this odd bit of trivia, I don't recall.

Anyway, people here go nuts. We all bring in various foodstuffs that we have kicking around our collective houses: pizza sauce, mushrooms, cheese (obviously), pepperoni, green peppers, onions, ham, eggs, smoked sausage, hamburger, whatever. We wind up doing both breakfast and lunch of grilled sandwiches. While I'm sure we'd rather have an omelette cart, it's the best we can do.

So if anyone has any panini/hot pocket recipes, be sure to post them.
