Ridgemonkey Toaster

I have decided that one of these could be a good addition to my food bag and there is a good chance I may eat some more wholesome food this Winter.  I have a bad habit of buying rubbish on the way to the lake.

First time – Toasted ham, cheese, tomatoes



Place one piece of bread in the Ridgemoneky, then add all your ingredients…

in this case ham, cheese and tomatoes.  Put another slice of bread over the top, close the lid and cook on a slow heat, that’s important as you could burn the food.




And yes, they do taste great.



The next time I was out I thought I would try some sausages or bacon sandwiches

The first step has to be cook the sausages (no need for food poisoning when out fishing, this happened once and never again).



Then I cut them in half, just to make sure (which also make a better sandwich).



Then place a piece of bread on top and flip over with the lip closed


As before, place another one on top, this also soaks up all the juice (may not be good for the waistline).


close the lid and flip over until the toast is done.


Always cook on a low heat for best results.

Next was the Bacon butty and we do love these.

basically the same steps as above.

The list is endless of what you can do.


About richardhandel

I would like to give a brief snap shot of my life and introduce myself; My name is Richard Handel and was born in 1965 in Suffolk. I have worked as a UK Operation & Intermodule Manager for a shipping company. I live in Hampshire now and am married with 2 young children, both girls so I am a bit outnumbered even the cat is a girl! I have been fishing since I was about 7 years old. I started on small local rivers in Suffolk, then moved onto gravel pits and then carp fishing. My personal best is a 39.08 mirror, over recent years I have started river fishing again, on the Hampshire Avon, this is a nice break from the carp lakes. My life has turned a big corner this year, the company I was working for relocated their Operation centre to Estonia. I was offered a job at the head office in London. This would have meant a 5 day commute and working in Stratford. As a family, we did not fancy this, as I would hardly spend any time with the children (and the Mrs). So after 22.5 years, I was given a nice redundancy package and with my wife is working full time. I became the house husband. This has meant a complete turn around in my fishing, as I can pick and choose when I go. I have found a splendid new syndicate to fish this year, which includes 5 lakes and some 8 miles of river with only 150 members. It's an amazing change to the way I am able to fish. I am now trying to start my own tackle business and make a bit of a name for myself in the world of fishing, as I have retired from real work. Richard
