Gone are the days of the humble ham, cheese and tomato toastie - you need a bit more extravagance to win the great NZ toastie takeover.

Which is exactly what Romeo Dowling-Mitchell from Hungry Hobos in Dunedin has done with his winning 'Bat out of Hell' toasted sandwich.

Sink your teeth into this - homemade meatloaf, made to his grandma's recipe, creamy mashed potato, gravy, aged cheddar and Mcclure's sweet and spicy pickles all inside herb buttered ciabatta.

Mike Hosking spoke with Dowling-Mitchell on the victory and the bragging rights that come with it.
