We like these filling combinations: - grated zucchini, chopped chopped tomato and grated cheese - sliced ham and crushed pineapple - baked beans and grated cheese - frozen corn kernels, sliced ham and diced red onion - sliced mushroom, sliced spring onion and chopped spinach Tip: This recipe is a great way of using up stale bread. You can use tortillas instead of bread if you have them.
