Best no-mess hill lunch

Trail (UK) - - CONTENTS -

QCan you rec­om­mend an on-the-go lunch op­tion that doesn’t need to be cooked on a stove and won’t end up as a huge mess in my ruck­sack? Oliver Hut­ton, via Face­book

Trail says We’ve all been there… You’re on the hill, you’ve strug­gled to the sum­mit and, hav­ing worked up an ap­petite Henry VIII would have been proud of, you reach into your bag, sali­vat­ing for that de­li­cious sarnie you lov­ingly made at home, only to pull out an em­phat­i­cally de­con­structed mess of squashed bread and mashed fill­ings. Is it even recog­nis­able as a sand­wich any more? Prob­a­bly not.

To solve this moun­tain lun­cheon quag­mire, sim­ply make your sarnie of choice as usual but, be­fore bag­ging it up, pop it into a toastie ma­chine and grill it. Not only does this method in­stantly im­prove the taste of any given sand­wich – fact – it also clamps the edges of the sarnie to­gether to en­case the fill­ings and pre­vent any of the afore­men­tioned spillages. The toastie might not still be warm by the time you get around to eat­ing it on the sum­mit, but there’s a much bet­ter chance of it still be­ing in one piece!
