In celebration of toasted sandwiches and the recent announcement of the 2022 Great Toastie Takeover winner - Rotorua’s Okere Falls Store and Craft Beer Garden (Okere Falls Store and Craft Beer Garden) ‘Get Smoked, Pickled + Toasted’ creation – I’m going sweet with my toastie. 

My BHC - Banana, hazelnut & cinnamon/chocolate toastie 

  • 2 slices brioche, buttered 
  • 1 small banana, sliced 
  • 1 tablespoon hazelnuts, crushed 
  • Pinch of cinnamon 

2 squares chocolate dark chocolate, grated or chopped – optional 

  1. Heat pan to medium. Lay one piece of brioche in the pan, buttered side down. Top with banana slices, hazelnuts and cinnamon. Grate over chocolate. Top with second slice of brioche, buttered side up.
  2. Cook until golden brown then flip. Resist pressing down on the brioche – we want it to stay light and fluffy - and cook until golden.
  3. Slice and eat!
