Treat Time Toaster

So I whip out the Treat Time Toaster today for what we call a "Toasty Tight" for lunch and I started wondering If anyone else used these? Its basically a hinged metal contraption that you place a sandwich in and then hold it over the burner of the stove until the bread gets "toasty". So it's like a contained grilled cheese sandwich - unless you use PB&J like I did today. This thing has been in our family since I can remember.

So I start searching the web only to find zero mention of this thing. I couldn't even find one on eBay! Anyone else remember these things? What other stuff do you guys/gals use on a regular basis that others might not know about?

Try quotation marks "Treat Time Toaster" lots of hits for ebay it seems. Never saw one but had an electric type thing many years ago for sandwhiches.

Looks like an early version of the George Foreman Grill.

With some variation I found a couple of these on eBay. It seems they were made for camping purposes. We use ours all the time though.

We called them pudgies. Might wanna mention using a gas stove for making them. (I don't know if electric would work). I may get one for around the campfire.

Apparently it come from "pudgie pie"

Here are several shapes and sizes (towards the bottom).

I am 29. The last time I used one was probably about 15 years ago.

When I was a kid, we would use something like that when we were camping. We used them for sandwiches (esp. grilled cheese), hot apple turnovers, etc. It was great for campfires.

I saw one on the "My Name is Earl" rerun last night - Roseanne Arnold was using one to make a grilled cheese sandwich. That was the first time I had seen one.

That's randomly coincidental.

I had the plug-in type and made yummy sandwhiches all the time. Til my ex took it when I booted him out.
