The mum posted a video showing off the newly popular toasted sandwich hack on a Facebook group after adapting it for her own family by using banana and almond spread as the filling.
Mother-of-two Alicia Kissane-Robinson, 37, said the rounded sandwiches, which can be stuffed with sweet or savoury fillings, proved to be a huge hit in her household.

A mum has posted a video of her take on the popular toasted sandwich hack which has recently done the rounds on social media
‘My five-year-old immediately asked if I will pack them in her lunch when school starts,’ the mum said on a post in a popular lunchbox Facebook group.
The woman was inspired to make the toasted sandwiches after seeing them across social media.
The mum’s video shows exactly how to make the sandwiches which have gone viral across Instagram, Facebook and TikTok in recent days.
First she takes a slice of bread and places some almond spread in the centre of one of the slices before adding four pieces of sliced banana.
She then places another slice of bread on top to make a sandwich.
Then the busy mum-of-two take a large glass and uses it to cut out a circle-shaped sandwich from the centre of the slice of bread.

The glass presses down the edges of the bread as it cuts the sandwich, sealing it so it can be put into a toaster.
The sandwich is ready once it is golden brown on the inside and hot and oozing on the inside.
And other mums in the group were impressed with her efforts, with some calling the toaster hack a ‘gamechanger’.

Some mums were worried about the wasted portion of each slice of bread – but Alicia said she and her husband eat the leftovers.
‘My kids won’t eat crust anyway,’ she explained.
Others suggested the crusts could be turned into breadcrumbs or croutons instead of being wasted.
