Method

Okonomiyaki (Japanese savoury pancake)

  1. Preheat pie maker. Wait for the green READY light to go on.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk eggs, milk, flour and baking powder together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in coleslaw mix.
  3. Spray pie maker with oil. Place one-sixth of the mixture into each hole. Close lid and cook for 3-4 minutes or until about half cooked. Using a spoon or fork, flip pancakes over, pressing into holes. Cook for a further 3-4 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from pie maker. Continue to cook remaining pancakes.
  4. Transfer okonomiyaki to a serving plate. Drizzle with mayonnaise and okonomi sauce and scatter with shallots.

  3. Whisk eggs and milk together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Spray pie maker with oil. Press bread rounds into pie maker holes to create cases. Divide relish, tomatoes and half the thyme among bread cases. Carefully pour over egg mixture. Scatter with cheese. Close lid and cook for 8-10 minutes or until golden and set.

 TIP: Be careful not to drizzle any egg mixture under or on the outer sides of the bread case. It will cook quickly and may burn.

Notes

Okonomi sauce is a Japanese-style barbecue sauce traditionally served with okonomiyaki. Find it in the Asian aisle of large supermarkets. You can substitute with tonkatsu sauce or, at a pinch, a good barbecue sauce.
