I'm partial to a jaffle myself.

I can't see a menu on the website. I wonder how gourmet they go. I'm happy with cheese & tomato perhaps some baked beans thrown in. Occasionally some left over bolognese if I'm feeling adventurous.

I heard him talking about this last year I think on SEN. He mentioned a few different types that they were starting off with. From memory the ingredients sounded pretty standard and i don't think he mentioned more than about 4 or 5 different types of jaffles.

Nothing like taking the roof of your mouth off with volcanic hot baked beans in a jaffle in the middle of winter.

He might be onto a winner here.

When your main competition is Warwick Capper, it won't be hard to come across as intelligent, professional or likeable.

Baked beans, chilli con carne-style, with chopped habanero chillies, shaved Parmesan, avocado cubes and lime juice with thick wholemeal/grain bread, hand-sliced from the loaf! Hotter than hell. A couple of cans of Carlton never tasted so good.

I had a Jaffle from Maxys  van today at the Commercial hotel beer garden in Yarraville.

Max wasn’t there, but it’s being run in partnership with his younger brother.

i had a pastrami cheese and pickle one, and it tasted good. Basically a toasted sandwich. Took over half an hour to make though , so thought it was a very long wait, but I guess teething problems are to be expected in a brand new venture.

I reckon you’ll find Max is more figurehead than hands on in this venture, but making the odd “celebrity” appearance. It appears to be a Gawn Brothers venture underwritten by Max.

So DZ how much did they charge? Good value for money?

So the service is great, expect that they keep giving first bite to the midfielders.

Boom-tish.

Anything hotter?  I reckon the jam from a microwaved donut would go close SWYL!

Worked in an office with a bloke who would guts 80% of any morning tea provided.  Left a plate of microwaved jam donuts out on the kitchen table.  Taught the bustard a valuable albeit, painful lesson.

On the topic of jaffles, I love 'em with just about anything but particularly cooked over an open camp fire.

We had a cleaner, a big French guy, he would come in and eat all the cream biscuits in the tea room. One day I left one cream biscuit on the table, cream removed and filled with wasabi. He swallowed it whole and soon turned green, he never stole another biscuit.

Edit- In the 60's the Herbert Adams pies served at the footy were like molten lava inside and if it dripped between your fingers it would burn like hell.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.   The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
