1/4 cup Orange Juice
12 slices of bread
pat of margarine
Heat dates and OJ together in a stock pan. Heat until dates are blend with juice. Leave to cool. Spread between buttered slices of bread.
(The following is a sandwich that takes a bit of time. in my youth [in Rhodesia] I would have used Dairibord Butter or Stork margarine, Willards salt, Colcom bread, but they are gone and I live in the US, so we do with what we can get.)
Rarebit Sandwiches
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 grated/shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon mixed (prepared) mustard (I like stone ground/dijon)
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
2 tomatoes
6 slices (meaty )bacon
6 slices Bread (I like 100% whole wheat)

Chef’s Notes:

Toast bread. Cook the bacon crisp and set aside. lay toast on serving plate.  in large bowl beat egg with a whisk. set aside. Thinly slice tomatoes thinly length wise. place two slices of tomato on each bread. In sauce pan melt butter and then add cheese, stir until cheese has melted. Add salt and mustard. stir a second. stir in milk SLOWLY and then pour in mixture on top of beaten egg. stirring continuously. (From heat of sauce the egg will be cooked) sprinkle tomato with salt and pepper. Cover all bread with sauce. top with the bacon and serve while dish is hot.
