"I adore Barrio's toasties and would love to whip some up at home. Could you share the recipe?"

Barbara Walker, Manuka, ACT

REQUEST A RECIPE
To request a recipe, email fareexchange@bauer-media.com.au or send us a message via  Facebook. Please include the restaurant's name and address, as well as your name and address. Please note that because of the volume of requests we receive, we can only publish a selection in the magazine.

You'll need

4 thick slices (about 360gm) smokehouse bacon, such as Pialligo Estate (see note) 8 thick slices soft-style cornbread or brioche (see note) 180 gm vintage cheddar, sliced (see note)

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Place bacon in a deep roasting pan and bake in the oven until softened and warmed through (8-10 minutes). Remove from oven and heat oven grill.
  • 02
  • Arrange bread slices on a foil-lined oven tray (you may need 2 trays). Grill bread on one side until golden (1-2 minutes), then turn, place bacon on half the slices and cheese on remaining half and season to taste. Grill until bacon browns and cheese melts (1-2 minutes). Sandwich together, cut in half and serve.

Barrio uses Pialligo Estate smokehouse bacon (available from select grocers and butchers), cornbread from Canberra's A Baker (if cornbread is unavailable, substitute brioche or soft white bread), and Bodalla cheddar, available from Supabarn supermarkets.
